      ... was good, the sun was shining unlike yesterday. We got up early ready for a 2 hour trek to a beach! The island doesn't have any cars so the only way you can get around is by walking. The whole island is set up with walking trails, ranging from a 30 minute walk to 12 hours. One person walked the whole of the island in 8 days! The trek to Lopes Mendez beach was very hilly, walking up boulders and fallen over trees in the forest. It was really fun though but we ...

      A travel blog entry by donmiller on Apr 02, 2013

      There was no second connection this morning. The bus dropped us off
      at the dock for the boat to Ilha Grande. There was some confusion as to
      which dock and when it would leave, There were three Argentinians on
      the bus with me and they seemed to have enough Portuguese to get to the

      Plenty of time to go across the street ...

      ... of our time on Ilha Grande drinking Brahma or sunbathing with them. Hiked through the rainforest to an amazing waterfall one day. Was hoping to see parrots but made do with the incredible butterflies - so huge and the most amazing colours. And we heard howler monkeys in the distance! Swam in the waterfall and had a picnic on the rocks drying off. Played with local kids in a pool in the river - sliding down the little waterfall and trusting ...
