Your day-by-day itinerary

Rio de Janeiro – Ilha Grande

Day 1

Rio de Janeiro – Ilha Grande

You’ll be picked up from Rio and driven for a couple of hours along the Costa Verde coastline, until you reach the port at Angra dos Reis.  Here you can purchase a ferry ticket for just a couple of pounds, and set off on the picturesque 2hr ferry crossing to Ilha Grande.  Arriving in the main town, you’ll make your own way to your comfortable pousada a short walk away, and soon find yourself settling into the pace of island life.

Days 2-3

Explore and Relax

On your second day we’ve arranged tickets for a boat which will take you to another side of the island, dropping you off just a short walk away from one of Brazil’s best beaches – Lopes Mendes.  You’ll have the day here to relax on the powdery sand and swim in the clear blue water, before heading back to town in the afternoon.

The rest of your time on the island is left for you to do as much or as little as you choose as you choose.  You could be exploring one of the many forest trails running through the island, eating delicious seafood dinners on the beach, snorkeling in the clear waters, or doing precisely nothing with a caipirinha in hand.
