Buzios

Day 1 - We are off to Búzios for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of Rio. – For more sun, sand & swim. Just a 2 hour bus ride east of Rio is beautiful Búzios. When we arrive, and after a rip off R$10 taxi for two blocks (silly tourists, not knowing where the hell they are) we arrive at our little villa hostel. We relax for a little while then walk into the main town area which is full of restaurants and boutique shops... (to find some dinner of course).

 

Day 2 - We get in some exercise and walk around to various beaches – the coastal area is dotted with numerous beaches in all types, from calm waters or others for surf. Later in the afternoon we settle into a beachside restaurants/cafés and tuck into a seafood lunch. They reserve chairs and tables right on the beach for relaxing, and you just walk a few metres back into the eating area when your lunch is ready. You don’t even have to move from your chairs on the beach if you don’t want to, they’ll serve everything to you right there.

Then, as if that wasn’t enough seafood, that evening we also ate in a nice little sushi place in town.

 

Day 3 - We booked a Scuba tour that goes out to one of the Islands! YAY! As this is the first time either of us have been diving – I’m a little bit nervous, but alot excited! After getting over the initial `breathing under water thing´ it was incredible! (Indie you would be so proud!)

 

Day 4 – Sleep in, then after breaky we have to check out L. We find a beach to chill for a while before heading back to Rio though.

 

Búzios was such a great holiday getaway. Lots of couples and families. Nice clear waters and squeaky clean sand. No beach vendors, no `coca, água, skol´. Just sun sand and surf (well scuba)! Ahhhh...heaven.
