I'm traveling to rio to meet friends for NYE and have 2 or 3 days to myself before they arrive. I would like to go to Ilha Grande for a few days and explore, and have a few qs:
- weather right now will suck and I shouldnt go or is OK and worth checking out anyway?
- do i need to call around and book a reservation now, or just show up? im looking for hostel style cheap accommodation. are the options listed on the ilhagrande tourism website the way to go?
- anyone have info on diving? i'd love to dive for a day if possible.
- if i only have 1 or 2 days/nights on the island, what should i be sure to do? i know, personal choice but please share opinions...
- THANK YOU THANK YOU!
We are in rainy season. So I suggest you check out how is weather at Ilha Grande.
Brazilians use to go to beachs and spots in holidays. So I suggest you book a reservation now. Ilha Grande may be crowded.
Diving is OK in Ilha Grande and Angra dos Reis.
There are no cars in Ilha Grande.
thanks for the reply! yah, it looks rainy and also it is all booked from everywhere i check... so I guess not this trip!
