What you'll do

Let's visit a viewpoint near of Pedra da Gávea. The largest mountain in front of the sea in Brazil. In the lookout Joa you will be able to see the neighborhood of São Conrado and the biggest favela of Rocinha. Then we go to a secret beach "Joatinga" with 300 meters of sand and sea a greenish blue. The beach has a beautiful view that you can see the ocean from incredible cliffs. In addition, the region is also famous for receiving whales at the time of breeding. After that, we will visit a secret island called "Gigoia" in Barra da Tijuca. The island is practically a paradise of nature within the bustling city of Rio de Janeiro. On island you will have the opportunity to imagine how was the Rio de Janeiro in the past. Finally we will make a small boat trip. On the boat you will have a 360 degree view of nature, and you will see the local fauna and flora. Bonus: here we can see wild alligators, capivaras and birds. The boat trip will be the end of tour. NOTE: The guest is responsible for paying the boat ticket, each ticket costs around 5 reais per person. NOTE 1: The secret beach is sometimes covered by the ocean, so we can not enjoy the beach, just from the beach lookout. If this happens we will go to Barra beach in the end of tour. Barra beach is the biggest beach of Rio with 14,4 km length
