“No pain, no gain”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Let's face it: It's far, hard to get and the mosquitoes seem to never leave you - until you get there.This beautiful and peaceful piece of coast makes you forget you are in the most crowded state in Brazil. BTW, go in a 4x4 vehicle, or there's a pretty good chance you get stuck in the way.
