DEPARTURE DATES: EVERYDAY
The state of Rio de Janeiro offers much more than people realize. With this trip, travelers will have all the opportunities to enjoy paradise. Explore the beaches and islands of Rio’s “Green Coast” as we take you from the urban setting of Rio de Janeiro to the wonderful island setting of Ilha Grande. Ilha Grande is one of the most pristine remnants of Brazil’s Atlantic rainforest, one of the richest ecosystems in the world, and a hotspot for biodiversity and conservation. It holds some of the largest remaining populations of many endangered species. The seas around the island, which are also protected, feature a unique convergence of tropical, subtropical, and temperate-zone marine life, and may be the only waters in the world where it is possible to see corals and tropical fish along with Magellanic penguins and Southern right whales.
