    Location great - if it was beach weather

    Great location if you are into going to the beach but the hotel is in need of an upgrade in the rooms. Very friendly helpful staff, and the lobby was a comfortable place to sit and use the free wifi (Expensive if you want access in your room). Would have preferred free access in the room.
    The buffet breakfast was good with a fair selection of food. Everything looked spotlessly clean. One staff member was testing the food checking the temp etc.
    Brazil is expensive and for what you got at the hotel it was quite expensive but if you were there for the beach and it was beach weather then it would be a reasonably priced hotel.

    ... strictly told that it’s the best to head there at sunset, and I now know why. After arriving at the main gate to enter, I was greeted with a 3 hour line and every tourist under the sun. I guess one of the benefits of solo travelling, is that you can be a little sneaky. I decided to pull my phone out and pretend I was on the phone to “dad” and walked all the way to the front saying “dad where are you im here” with the intention to look ...

    ... sleeping in the hammocks outside by the river. Not sure how much sleep any of them actually got - they looked pretty knackered the next day but at least it was going to be a down day of travel for us back to Rio.

    So a big travel day began again, onto the truck with some more wildlife watching on route, then the minibus to Campo Grande and a flight to Rio. By the time we arrived it was supper time so Fernanda took us for our last group dinner at a buffet ...

    ... staying at a hostel called Posada Palouma - it wasn't the greatest hostel so the next morning we changed to Che Lagarto which was right on the water and much nicer. Although in the room that we were assigned there was a real issue with moisture - mould covered the walls and the beds felt incredibly damp, almost wet. We went out for dinner that night and just happened to run into Elliot, Joe and Ali on ...

    ... you can see the beach. Cloud cover didn't let up however and we gave up waiting at sundown of 5:48. I'd have given up earlier. It reminds me of when I learnt to sky dive. Four hours of waiting for five minutes of action. Due to horrifc traffic we eventually got back to the hostel just in time for happy hour at half 7. The caprinias <sic> took a while to kick in. The evening was another on the party boat, which was a good way to say goodbye to Rio.

    ... it is here that you will find the ornate historical buildings and cathedrals. In fact, most of the day was spent looking at buildings old and new, hearing about when, why and by whom they were built.

    After the tour I made a quick visit to Liberdade, the Asian part of the city with one of the biggest Japanese populations outside of Japan. If you happen to be looking for any product with an Asian label on it, you will find it in one of the many shops ...
