on the way to ilha grande
the boat trip to this island was absolutely beautiful like this whole area is! but of course we went there without having any sort of reservation! so our first big plan was, to get some place to sleep! like the moment you arrive we had guide trying to get us to a place that was "ideal" for us! so half the group went with him just to see what he was talking about, he showed us a house in a very bad state and on not very good location but for a little a mount of money and some other places, meanwhile the rest of the group got in contact with hostels other people were telling us about, when we returned from our immobilizing trip, they found a much better solution! so we had to get rid of our guide!
the hostel we found was on a very good location not far from anything! and they had a pool table and a nice atmosphere! but like the moment we arrived we managed to break a bed, as we did before in angra dos reis!
in our first afternoon we went to the close beach with the pirate ruins, the beach was different, very narrow and the water was black and completely calm, no waves at all! to get to a less crowded place we walked through the water with our bags on our heads! but it was worth it, we found a very nice spot just for us! i really loved the water there, you can lie in for hours just great! but the water moved quickly and we had to leaf our spot and headed back to the more crowded places, there we caught  a little bit of sun, there is this tiny river that runs in to the see were the water is very warm, ideal for kids to play!
the rest of the day we went shopping cause there were this cool shops who sold local jewelery!
