Our guide Mariana was incredibly personable. Unfortunately we were promised an early pick up but not kept. Had to wait at the pier at 7am for over an hour early in the morning. Boat good but extremely loud. Music selection not necessarily for every taste. I suspect the exuberant party mood was more at the start of the Carneval in Brazil.

Las playas espectaculares y el barco no iba muy lleno. Pude ver las tortugas, pero creo que deberían estar estresadas por el tránsito abrumador de barcos. El Guia hablaba español, como se indica en l descripción. Pero el guía no entra en el barco, donde se explican los paisajes exclusivamente en portugués. La comida tipo “bufet” no es en el barco, así que mejor llévate comida o deberás pagar en el barco porque son muchas horas. La comida de la descripción se da al final del trayecto, cuando has bajado del barco, sobre las 6 de la tarde. No incluye la bebida, que tienes que pagar tu, y no es tipo bufet. Es un menú de pescado frito o carne ( abundante, no pasé hambre) pero tampoco hay mucho donde elegir.
