Weather - the first 2 weeks in November  (1 Answer)

Hello,

We are supposed to be staying on Ihla Grande from Tuesday 5th November 2013 for 9 days until the 14th.

But we are really worried by the weather reports we are seeing - all the reports indicate rain or thunder storms every day of our stay.

Are these reports accurate? Should we change our travel plans?

Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

Ben & Emily.

A nice place to stay? booking in advance??

Hi,
I am in Rio de Janeiro and would like to go to Ilha Grande next friday, the 24th of may 2013 until the 27th.
I've been told that during weekends, it get's quite packed, and you need to book in advance;
Since it is low season now, is this still recommended?

Also: Does anybody can recommend me a place to stay? I am in my 30's, single traveller, would like to meet nice people, but not be in a place full with party-people.

Thank you!!

Shall we book accomodation in advance or when we arrive?  (1 Answer)

Hi All,

I will be in Ilha Grande in December for 3 nights. Would you recommend booking accomodation online in advance?

I have read that upon arrival there are many people offering accomodation. Is this a good idea to book from them? How much is it likely to cost and what is the accomodation like? Secure? Clean?

Also am i correct in thinking that most people stay in Abraao and take day excursions? Which excursions would you recommend?

Thanks for your help

Visiting Ilha Grande During February/March 09  (3 Answers)

Hi all,
one of my close friends visited Brazil about 2 years ago and highly recommended seeing Ilha Grande when I fly to South America in 2009.
I plan to be in Brazil for February so I can experience carnival but after this I was wanted to either travel north to Reciefe or head over to Ilha Grande.

I really have three questions about Ilha Grande which I'm hoping you can help answer:

1). Will February/March be the peak season on Ilha Grande?
2). Should I book accomadation before I arrive on Ilha Grande?
3). If I chose to camp on the island can I hire out camping equipment or would I need to take this with me?

Many thanks in advance for any help received.

Andy

Weather in December in Ilha Grande  (2 Answers)

Hi,

Could anyone advise me about the weather conditions in Ihla Grande in December? Me and my boyfriend are planning to go to Rio & Ihla Grande in the middle of December.

Anyone could recommend any "must" visit islands from Ilha Grande? How does it work to visit them from Ihla Grande? (boat trips?)

Thank you so much for your advice!!

evening arrival  (2 Answers)

Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to arrive at Rio Galeano Airport around 5pm and still realistically get to Ilha Grande that evening by private car and boat. My feeling reading through the forum is that it would be better to head to Mangaratiba for the night and take the 8am ferry crossing? Appreciate any thoughts on this, costs of taking the private transport option and recommendations on overnight accommodation in Mangaratiba.

Renting a sailing boat  (2 Answers)

Hello VTMembers,

I'm planning on getting to Ilha Grande on October with some friends. My idea would be to rent a sailing boat in Angra dos Reis to sail to Ilha Grande and explore the island with the boat. I have the sailing license so I wouldn't need an extra man on board.

Could anyone give me advise on where to rent it? Please also tell me if you think it isn't a good idea.

Obrigado!

ENRIC

Life on Ilha Grande- Feedback from those who live on this wonderful island !!!  (1 Answer)

Hello Everyone,

After spending 11 years in Toronto, Canada i have decided that it is time for a change. A couple of my friends and i are thinking about taking a year off to travel and of course we would like to spend most to all of our time on Ilha Grande.
What are the possiblities of gaining work on the island ( if any)? When i was there in November i observed that there was ample accomodations so that shouldn't be a problem.
What i really want to know is there a possiblity of teaching english or attaining any sort of job on the island? I have decided to enroll myself into Portuguese classes up here to get a head start.
Please provide me your most honest feedback as i would like to know if my dream could become a reality.

Obrigada,
TG 11

Getting into contact with someone on Ilha Grande, RJ  (3 Answers)

Good morning,
I have a quick question to ask..I recently visited Ilha Grande, RJ and absolutely loved it. Anyone who is interested in going it is worth the trip. I only spent 4 days there but it was worth it. If you have any questions i can help you.
Whislt on the island, i met many people who all gave me their phone numbers. I am wondering would these numbers be mobiles or landlines? The reason i am asking is that i would like to send them a text as my Portugese is limited. Please advise.

Obrigada, TG 11
