Continuing along the Costa Verde, I stayed a few days on the tranquil Ilha Grande, a former pirate lair. It had great, unspoilt beaches, no cars and a really laid-back feeling. Met some local lads there, and had a great time getting to learn some more Portuguese and about the life of a Brazilian. Also went on a schooner tour to some of the local beaches, seeing many tropical fish, more dramatic coastline, and even getting to pick up starfish!
