From Rio I head south along the Atlantic coast to one of the picturesque, laid-back islands on the coast, llha Grande. Here we relax, walk the clean sand beaches, swim in the warm waters of this island paradise and hike through the lush forest.
The local fauna and flora in Ilha Grande are extremely diverse. The state park was created in 1971 and encompasses 4.500 hectares of wilderness. Mountain range, coastal, mangrove and prairie vegetation are all found here, along with an astonishing collection of bird life and different kinds of monkeys.
