Arraial do Cabo: ATV Quad Bike Tour

2. Arraial do Cabo: ATV Quad Bike Tour

Proceed to the meeting point at the Praia Grande beachfront in Arraial do Cabo where the guide will welcome you for an unforgettable ride in the "Brazilian Caribbean". A training on how to drive the equipment will be given by the guide. The driver of the quadricycle must have a Driver's License Category B. The adventure begins at the Pedreira da Álcalis, impressed by the immensity of the rocky wall and the exuberant nature of the place. Next stop is Praia do Pontal, the first beach in Arraial do Cabo and one of the most remote ones, where you will enjoy with tranquility all the beauty of the crystal clear water and white sand characteristic of the city. We continue our tour to another surprising place in the region, the Barra Nova Lagoon, located on the border between Arraial do Cabo and Cabo Frio, its reddish color contrasts with the blue water of Praia do Foguete, with only a strip of sand that divides the lagoon from the sea. We end the tour in the sandbank of Praia Grande, a place surrounded by white sand dunes and one of the best known beaches in the region. This itinerary is subject to change.

Spectacular beaches and the boat was not very full. I was able to see the turtles, but I think they must be stressed by the overwhelming boat traffic. The Guide spoke Spanish, as indicated in the description. But the guide does not enter the boat, where the landscapes are explained exclusively in Portuguese. The “buffet” type food is not on the boat, so it is better to take food with you or you will have to pay on the boat because there are many hours. The food in the description is given at the end of the journey, when you have got off the ship, around 6 in the afternoon. It does not include drinks, which you have to pay for, and it is not a buffet. It is a menu of fried fish or meat (abundant, I did not go hungry) but there is not much to choose from.

Our guide was very attentive- we felt like we had our own bodyguard. Good food, amazing beaches. The boat could do with a paint job.
