Travel Tips for Arraial do Cabo

A BIT HISTORY

by janaina

The formely Cabo Frio District comprised Cabo Frio(the most populous town),Buzius(the wealthy ,sophisticated resort) and Arraial
(which has since become independent politically and economically,beacause of its salt industry).
According to Marcio Verneck,a local historian,Cabo Frio was inhabitated at least 5500 years ago.
Before the Portugueses arrived,the warring Tamoio and Goitacazes tribes lived here.
In 1503 Portugueses,under the command of Americo Vespucio,landed at PRAIA DOS ANJOS,in Arraial.
Twenty four men were left behind,to build a new settlement.
Fantastic reports about this community were the model for Thomas More's "UTOPIA"!

My second house

by hmoitta

My family has a house in Arraial since 1982 and before that we rented a house there in the seventies.
It's the kind of place I go to stay with my family and friends in weekends and one of the most beautiful places I've ever been.
The city is about 170km from Rio and is an excellent place to eat seafood as it used to be a traditional fisherman village.

Arraial do Cabo

by ssm10

It's located about 180 km north from Rio. It's considered one of the best places for diving in Brazil.
There is a salty industry installed there and because of the word "industry", many people just avoid this city. Wrong decision. I love it and invit e you to visit it. Wonderfull beaches. See photos.

THE FIRST TIME DIVER

Carlinhos gave the guys a short explanation about the dive point,what they could see,the signs under the water,etc..

Waiting to get to the dive point

Hey,what about this place??

Ok,here we go!!

See ya!!

And he was back,after 55 minutes and spoke about his experiences till last time I talked to him!!(about a week ago)
No regrets!!
