This was my first dive in Atlantic waters and in South America. The dive operation we used was quiet reliable, heading out on a 50 minute boat ride out to sea. Dives were operated individually, the dive leader simply pointed out an area and one jumped in in pairs diving alone. The briefing could have been better, and I asked a number of questions until I was satisfied with the information for a safe and successful dive.
My vacation to Buzios, Brazil
Buzios is located 176 kilometres from Rio de Janeiro, in the region of Los Lagos (the lakes). I signed up for a tour and stay for 5 days. I was picked up from my hotel, along with about 30 other tourists and was driven to Buzios. It was a nice experience to see the countryside by bus. Buzios is very hilly, but there were some very nice beaches located within 10 minutes by car from my Pousada. My favorite beach was Joao Fernandes. I was impressed with the fresh seafood restaurant, and hospitable service. The beach was very calm and relaxing. More than 600 thousand tourists visit the more than 20 beaches each year.
Among the most important beaches, it is possible to mention: Geribá, Joao Fernandes, Joao Fernandinho, Tortuga, Herradura and Capa De Frio.
Cabo de Frio beach. Famous for sand surfing and crystal clear waters
