This Jeep Tour is excellent. First, we headed for Lagoa do Fogo (Fire Lake) - a crater lake in the middle of the island. This was a wonderful, tranquil spot. We then drove North to Ponta do Cabro, where water from this lake enters the ocean at a big waterfall. After an excellent lunch in a local restaurant (local Tuna and local Beef), we drove up to Sete Cidades. Its beautiful twin lakes are actually only one lake divided by a long stone bridge. The larger body of water is clearly Blue, while the smaller one is Green. This difference is explained by the depth of the water, the former being deep and the latter being shallow. These lakes exist, along with a village inside an enormous crater and after exploring at lake level, we drove up to the rim of the crater for a fantastic view. Being in a Land Rover, we were able to drive to places where normal tourist's cars couldn't and our guide Ricardo was excellent. I can really recommend this superb Jeep Tour.
