Get to know one of the most beatifull island in Brazil


Ilha Grande recently received the title of the 'Second Wonder of the State of Rio de Janeiro. ' It has been recognized by Brazilian and foreign tourists alike as one of the world's most beautiful tourist destinations and is a place of exuberant nature!

It was once a hideout for sea pirates who made their money by looting European trading ships. The thick tropical jungles provided the perfect refuge where the pirates could hide their boats. The island was also a hub for the slave trade in Brazil. Since the island is strategically located on the sea route, it was colonized by the Spanish, French, Dutch and Portuguese at various points in time. After the proclamation of the Republic in 1889, Ilha Grande had an important hospital and then a prison. The prison was closed down in 1994, after which eco-tourism and tourism have flourished.
In this tour you will get to know one of the top 10 most beautifull beach in the world called LOPES MENDES!!
Tours available for bigger groups as well!
