TIPICAL THINGS TO DO & CLIMATE
On Cabo Frio there are allthe tipical coastside handcrafts,made by all they can find from the nature..(lace,pots,baskets,fishing gear,etc..)
Oral literature must see(or hear)is the "Contadores de causos"(story tellers..),usually at the same specific public gardens.
The most tipical dishes are "peixada"(fishes),"camaroada"(shrimps) and "mariscada"(shell fishes),that may be served with "cana com campoinha"(popular word that stands for "cachaca",a popular alcoholic beverage made from sugar cane..oops,watch out!).

I could not respond you very fast, but I am here now..searched the Net for some
diving places and agencies you could dive with near of Rio..I am not an expert
on this, 'cause I have never dived yet...!
Yes, Angra dos Reis (Rio state) and Abrolhos (Bahia) seems to be nice diving
spots, but I guess if you really wanna meet Sergio from Rio he could take you
maybe by car (I am not sure of that, but you can ask him to take him to there
during your Rio stay if it's at a weekend, or go by bus there....) to Cabo Frio
(120 kms north from Rio) where he always go to visit the family from his wife..
and which is definitely a good diving spot near of Rio too! Nearby is a city
called Arraial do Cabo where you will definitely have good diving conditions
