Travel Blogs from Ilha Grande
On Friday the 8th we made a mad taxi dash to the bus station after seeing Christ the Redeemer. We wanted to get a 3.30pm bus to Mangaratiba with the hope of getting the Friday special 10pm ferry. After playing bus station charades with the taxi driver, we went at walking pace to the station... We did get to see the lagoon we walked around in the …
At last we have arrived in Brazil, and a new country deserves a new blog entry!
Our flight to Iguassu was rather unconventional. Once seated on the plane, the pilot proceeded to open up the cockpit and began casually inviting several passengers to take a look inside. We were absolutely gobsmacked and just a little nervous. It felt as …
... government controls on infrastructure and building expansion the island is a place of scenic beauty with countless tropical beaches, lagoons and mountain trails: a paradise for the nature lover.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
I don't think I can go on enough about this beautiful hotel. Granted it wouldn't take much to out do the horror of Rio's 'El Misti', but we certainly lucked out with this choice. We had seen high ratings on lonely planet and trip advisor and they don't even begin to give it justice.
The communal areas are very Balinese in style and we had a private hammock on the balcony, what more could you ask for! Oh a bar fridge, tennis table and a load of DVDs to play in your room if the weather turns.
The staff too are AMAZING!
