Day 4
Ilha Grande

Arrival on Ilha Grande

Today you will transer to Ilha Grande. This island retreat off the coast of Rio de Janeiro is covered with tropical beaches and virgin rainforest, and contains only a few small settlements. It has a rich history, having housed a leper colony and then a high-security penitentiary for some of Brazil’s most dangerous political prisoners, until its closure in 1994. The island is noted for its unspoilt beaches, rugged landscape, rich vegetation and scenic beauty. The largest settlement on the island is the picturesque, palm-fringed beachfront town of Vila do Abraão.

Accommodation: Pousada Naturalia

Suites

We have 12 suites, beautifully designed with private bathrooms, ceiling fans, fridge with mini-bar, wide balcony with hammock and a wonderful view facing the sea.
