Full description
Enjoy an early morning pick up from Rio and relax on the 3-hour drive to the city of Búzios which is often called the Brazilian Caribbean due to the similarities in their natural beauties.

Arrive in the docks of Búzios, around 10:00 AM, and hop on the schooner. Enjoy a boat ride through the best places to swim and relax. 

Listen to some music playing and meet the friendly crew ready to assist on every matter. It is like having a small party on a boat. 

Explore the 4 different stops in places like the João Fernandes beach, Azeda, and Azedinha beaches, Tartaruga, or Ossos beach at the end. Stops may vary according to weather conditions and the number of people in each place. The captain chooses the best and less crowded areas to have a good time.

Búzios was a peaceful fishing village when its beaches began to be frequented for the summer holidays, in the ‘50s. Sometime later, the visit of a young Brigitte Bardot ended up revealing the resort to the world. Since then, Búzios has never gone out of style. The low houses, the windows of Pedras street, the boutique-inns, and the lively night make Búzios the desired destination in Rio de Janeiro State. Not to mention the beaches, more than 20 across the peninsula that make it look like a little piece of the Mediterranean ended up here.

Leave the boat around 3:00 PM and have a buffet lunch. Enjoy some free time after eating to explore the das Pedras street and its boutique stores and beautiful stone paving street. 
Hop on the bus and leave Búzios to make the journey back to Rio, arriving around 8:00 PM.
