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 …
... driven on the boat round to the northern tip of the island where we hiked round past the church ruins and were explained some of the islands history. On the final boat back to the mainland the staff made us caipirinha's and everyone was having a sing along. When we made it back to the mainland it was raining again so we got food from the supermarket and had a snacky dinner and chilled out evening in the hostel to escape the ...

... I didn't write down the name of the place, but it is on the beach front and lined with umbrellas that are lit up different colours.

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.
