Day 5 - The transfer to Ilha Grande was nice and easy, picked up from our hostel at 9am and feet on the island sand by 1pm. A short hike up the hill to Holandes Hostel and a heads up about the frequent power cuts due to the rain, gave us a taste of what lay ahead for the next few days. Ilha Grande is a hot and humid lush green paradise - we couldn't have felt further from Rio. There are no cars on the island and the only areas not covered in ...

As the bus approached the old port of Angro dos Reis my senses were overjoyed with the surrounding Caribbean atmosphere. I sunk down and relaxed on a 60ft old pirate yacht with at least 100 other passengers lying on the decking, tarpaulin and safety nettings over the water as few real seats were available – this only added to the carefree vibe. Underway for 1 hour at no more than 8knots we arrived at Ilha Grande, a tropical paradise that holds endless numbers of lagoons, bays, ...
