    No fué lo que esperaba, por momentos no sabíamos ni por donde andabamos la guia Alexia no nos explicaba nada. Viajar 12 hs, para estar 1,30 hs en el mar no vale la pena..

    Other customers were actively coughing and sniffling on the tour bus. I was first on and asleep until there was an unscheduled stop for a couple to get off. I realized 30 minutes later why and the guild didn't seem to care that he let sick people on the bus. This tour took 2 hours to get to the location, late boat, 30 min ride to a cove where you could see a break in the land and ocean on the other side. Decently cool, they had an option to buy some underwater pictures. tons of fish. Then the boat started again and instead of going anywhere really new, went around the peninsula to a beach next to the spot we were just at...30 minutes, then moved to literally the other side of the cove...at this point 5 out of 75 people jumped in as everyone was displeased that it was the same spot.

    It was nice to get out of the city for a day....diving in the blue lagoon and watching the fish is definitely worth it

    Estuvimos recorriendo algunas islas hicimos buceo en lago azul y visitamos algunas islas en donde en una de ellas almorzamos destaco eso como bueno, quizas porque el tiempo no ayudo estaba nublado y la noche anterior habia tormenta no pudimos apreciar las aguas, particularmente a mi no me agrada los tours porque estas sugeto a las horas que te indica el guia,si tienen la forma de alquilar un auto o ir en Uber recomiendo asi uno elegira lo que quiere visitar.

    In my opinion, this itinerary is far too long to enjoy as a day trip. You can catch the Costa Verde bus (their ticketing is downstairs in the bus station) at the Rio Novo bus station for about R$50 each way or $13 US dollars. I sure the bus tours work if you get a good one but Costa Verde bus service is always pretty good and will make a brief stop half way there for the restroom (clean) and a snack. Get off in the village of Conceicao de Jacare, then walk to the water and you will find a number of boat options to Ilha Grande. Those range between R$25 or $R50 depending on whether you want a quick ride or a scenic tour. The quick boat trip is maybe 30 minutes. You can use your favorite room booking app to get a hotel room, a portion of a house like upstairs in a two story or more extravagant or much cheaper but I am not a hostel guy. There are some nice well maintained nature walks and a number of beaches like the black sand beach or the one close to the small prison that was used there. You can also explore the village of Abraao. You can swim in clean water at the beaches or catch a boat taxi to the beaches and coves, but you will not be alone, this is a tourist destination for many Brazilaros. There are some restaurants that do OK but this is not a foodie destination, and the restaurants tend to cost a little more since everything comes in boats. Ilha Grande is mostly a large nature preserve and I have not explored it all but it is a beautiful place and has something for just about everyone. Oh yeah, some scuba tours are there but I have yet to try one. I ran out of weight in my bags bringing so many things for my friends, I could not bring my regulator. I prefer to use at least my own gear that is important to keep you alive, bcd, regulator and computer ;-). I would give Ilha Grande 4 stars on my own, fyi the return to Rio could be a traffic nightmare in the late afternoon and early evening.

    Nos pasaron a buscar al hotel 45 minutos más tarde de la hora acordada. Tuvimos que caminar un par de calles porque el bus no se estacionó frente a nuestro hotel, yo creo que hasta se habían olvidado o hubo mala coordinación entre con quien contratamos y el guía, porque tuve que llamarlo a su celular para preguntar que sucedía. Una vez en el vehículo, los asientos con espacios pequeños y tampoco era reclinable para un viaje que según google maps era de un poco más de 2 horas, cuando se lo mencionamos a la guía esta tampoco gestiono algo para lograr una mejor comodidad, así que tuvimos que descender del bus y decidimos no continuar con el servicio. Pésima experiencia y por la hora que todo esto ocurrió ya no podíamos tomar ningún otro tour para ir a conocer y disfrutar de angra do reis, no mataron el día. Ya mañana regresamos a nuestro país y por este lamentable episodio perdimos un día que habíamos destinado para ir a esa playa porque además el tiempo así lo permitía.

    Es un lugar para ir y volver en el día. Se disfruta si vas y no tenes que cumplir horarios de regresos ni estas atado a una excursion es una maravilla, no te arrepentiras aguas verdes y lugares de ensueño.
