We begin with an early pickup in Rio de Janeiro to go to Angra dos Reis. Angra is Portuguese for ‘small bay’ and it is part of a grand complex of bays and hundreds of islands. The Ilha Grande is the most beautiful and famous of all the islands and it is the place we visit in this tour. When we arrive at Angra dos Reis, we go straight to the harbour to take a boat trip through the archipelago of Ilha Grande. We stop at 3 different places to swim, do some snorkeling, admire beautiful islands, see the crystal-clear water and appreciate the green colors of the Atlantic rain forest. If we are lucky, we will be able to see some turtles and a lot of fish.
