Transfer to Ilha Grande from Rio de Janeiro.
From the pier of Angra dos Reis, the ferry goes to Ilha Grande (Big Island dt). The crossing takes about 1 ½ hours. In the afternoon, there are two optional activities to choose, not included in the price. First you can visit the largest town on the island, Abraão. You can also visit the nature reserve on the island, the Ilha Grande State Park is where you can get a guided tour offered that responds particularly to the history and culture of the island.
At the second day a journey to the Blue Lagoon ("lagoa azul") and the surrounding beaches is planned. The Blue Lagoon is a paradise with calm, shallow water with various shades of blue. The lagoon is also home to many small, colorful fish that you can attract with the help of bread and then deliver a unique spectacle.
Today you have the option, which is not included in the price, to participate in a trek to Lopes Mendes beach. The beach is the most famous beach on the island and one of the most beautiful in the entire Brazilian coast. The three-kilometer long beach has fine sand and incredibly clear water in many shades of blue. In the afternoon you will be transferred back to the pier and will take the ferry back to the mainland of Angra dos Reis. From Angra dos Reis you will be brought to Paraty and you will check in at Hotel Pousada Corsario Paraty http://www.pousadacorsario.com.br/paraty/pages/index/BR.
Having enjoyed the opulent breakfast at the Pousada, we will board our schooner for a 4hours ride off the coast, taking us into a world of tropical islands and beaches of breathtaking beauty. While anchoring on pristine beaches, nobody resists a swim in the crystal clear waters. Upon returning to Paraty we will have the afternoon and the evening at leisure. You may want to check out the many boutiques displaying a wide array of beautiful handicraft and Brazilian styled leisure wear. As another option still is the puppet show of the famous "Teatro Contadores de Histórias", with openings on the weekends and daily during high season. In the afternoon you will be transfered from Paraty back to Rio de Janeiro.
