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 …

... fun playing around in the sand. It just meant we didn't get the best photos or tan! Hopefully Rio will deliver. We caught a boat back round to the main village where our hostel was so we didn't have to do the walk again. We got a lovely sandwich from the bakery then spent the evening playing table tennis in the hostel (our biggest rally was 137!) whilst rain was beating down ...
So from the madness and debauchery in Paraty, we headed further north to Ilha Grande. Unfortunately our bus was late to pick us up, so we ended up missing the ferry and had to stay an extra five hours (!!!) at the port. We killed time by going to an internet cafe and researching our stay in Buzios, and then had a decent pizza lunch inside the supermarket.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPousada D'Pillel Ilha Grande
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!
We arrived at close to midnight after amending our stay 3times and they couldn't have been more accommodating.
