Tips & Tricks to help you plan your next adventure
We arrived at Ilha Grande after a 6 hour trip by EASY transfers…
Interesting name considering the trip was meant to be a 2 hour van ride and a 1 hour boat trip however as we were picked up from our hostel first we were driven around Rio for 2 hours whilst other passengers were picked up….
The trip cost us R$80 each and you can DEFINITELY do it cheaper by yourself however the transfer was the right choice for us, seeing as Sean was out sambaing until 6 am the night before.
The boat dropped us on a dock right at our hostel, Che Lagarto (another plus of the transfer).
Che Lagarto was located right on the water and although the rooms were kinda small again the view was totally worth it. Plus it was a super easy walk to all the main shops and restaurants in the main village, Abraão.
That afternoon we found a self service kilograma and ate a delicious meal before having a little explore around the main village, Abraão.
Hopefully the weather is good over the next few days as theres heaps of beaches and treks we’d like to check out.
