The Island Experience, Ilha Grande

Has anyone been to "The Island Experience" in Ilha Grande? I am planning a trip down there in August and wondered if anyone had any advice, tips, precautionary or otherwise. Thanks in advance.

I just checked out the web site and it looks pretty cool.

I'm sure it will be a great experience. The island is beautiful and there is plenty to do in a week with outdoor and spa activities.

One tip for you though. There will be plenty of insects/mosquitoes around the island. Take some repellant. I have also been told by some that if you take B-12 vitamin, twice a day for two weeks before, the bugs will stay clear of you.

Please post a review after you get back so everyone can hear about it!

I'm sorry this reply is so late, but you will LOVE The Island Experience!!! I went there for two weeks last year, and never wanted to come home. I'm going back again August 16th to Sept. 1st, so maybe I'll see you there! And don't worry about the bugs, it's winter there (I went the same time of year), and they weren't really around. Bring lots of clothes that dry out from hiking, and an extra pair of trail shoes, so you don't get blisters and hot spots for wearing the same pair every day. And there are no clocks in the room, so I was glad I brought my own alarm clock. Have a great trip!!!
