12 Day Costa Verde Adventure

Ponta Negra - Saco do Mamangua - Fisherman's way of life - Private boat tour in the bay
Unique about this tour:
  • Discovering the fisherman's way of life in Ponta Negra
  • The Brazilian Fjord - Saco do Mamangua
  • Private boat tour in Paraty bay
  • Bike tour in Rio with your private guide

This 12-day tour will take you from the busy streets of Copacabana in Rio, to the quiet and peaceful fisherman's village of Ponta Negra through some beautiful scenery and secluded beaches of Ilha Grande. You'll discover one of the last places on earth with the native and unique Atlantic Rainforest, which can be found in its virgin aspect in some places of the Costa Verde. 

You'll get to live, even if only for a day, the fisherman's way of life at the quiet Ponta Negra village. Later, you will be heading to the Brazilian "Fjord" of the Saco do Mamangua, where you'll spend a night to contemplate and enjoy the silence in this unique landscape.

The return to Paraty before saying goodbye to Brazil will be icing on the cake, with a private boat tour where you'll stop at some beautiful spot to go for a swim. You will also be having a nice caiprinha made by your captain.

Go Trekking In The Atlantic Forest

Depart from Paraty in a local minibus for the village of Laranjeiras. The trek starts with a short climb before entering in the Atlantic forest (Mata Atlantica), at the heart of the "Ecological preservation area of Joatinga".



After an hour and a half of a pleasant walk, you will reach the hamlet of Sono for lunchtime, on the border of one of the nicest beaches in the region, Praia Do Sono. Literally meaning "sleepy beach", Praia Do Sono will intrigue you, firstly because of its name. This is also because as soon as you get back on track, you will face a steep hill to climb.



After this climb, the hike becomes less demanding. This is the only difficult part of the walk. You will successively pass Praia Da Velha and Praia Dos Antigos before arriving an hour and a half later in the fishing village of Ponta Negra. Have dinner in Ponta Negra.

Back in the village, you will visit a manioc plantation and the "flour house" where the manioc is processed and reduced to flour.



After lunch, a local guide will take you to a waterfall of crystal clear water. Depending on the season, visit the village school, educating more than a third of the village population.
