Anyway ... if you get lucky, you may be able to find an airline promotion for less than the bus. Visit these airlines websites: GOL, TAM, BRA ...

Boarding the boat on the beach is a smooth operation and there is no need to get wet above one's knees. The seats are comfortable and afford all-around vision. The purr of the motor is lower than the sound of the breeze - passengers can talk to each other without raising their voices, but a simple gesture is enough to be served an iced coconut with a straw to suck the milk inside. ''Caipirinha'', the national cocktail made with cachaca, lime juice and sugar also is served, in glasses. Exitement begins when fish approach. The sailor throws morsels of bread to them and more and more of them come near the boat.
