Just amazing.

I'll probably remember that for the rest of my entire life. That was just incredible. I'm definitely capable to say that this is an must go/do thing.

A decent reef in this part of Brazil. But the crowds are horrendous.. and the Brazilians love to travel in big crowds (the successors to the Japanese..?)... and 90 percent stay in a small area, where the water is murky due to the maddening crowds.. and everybody is shooting selfies... it's sheer lunacy! The in-reef lake is actually quite large..... More

The only good thing about this trip was the group of guys explaining how we should respect nature. And then we went walking on the corals to look at fish, which were few. In my opinion, it would be much better if they just left nature alone to let it grow back to what it should be. If you've been... More

This is a bit different than your usual reef tour. You get to the reef and then walk over the part that is above water at lower tide. At the center is a "lake" of sorts that you can swim around with hundreds of others. There wasn't a huge assortment of wildlife.

If you have the opportunity to go do - there's a lot of fish to see and a few people to tell you about the marine life in the area. When the tide is at it's lowest you can sit on a patch of beach surrounded by water in the middle of the sea! It's one of those places you... More

We were able to find a one day trip for 50R per person and it was really nice and relaxing. Good organization, beautiful views and wonderful people.

A 45 min boat ride will get you to the coral reef, be sure to rent snorkel gear for 5R, Crocs (or take your own)for 5R and get the camera protector for 20R. The reef is only accessible during the morning, the tides cover it during the afternoon and evening. The volunteers at the reef will show you some of... More
