We enjoyed a little holiday from our travels in Ilha Grande, with pristine beaches, many walks in green lush rainforest and a relaxed atmosphere we soaked it all up. Finding ourselves a lovely little posada (guesthouse) called Velho Guerreico, with a killer buffet breakfast, we relaxed, we love the feeling of leaving a big bustling city behind and getting out into nature.
Paul went off on big day treks in the hot and sticky weather during the day, making it so some more secluded beaches over on the other side of the island. Lopez Mendes and Dois Rios were both stunning. I lazed on the beaches and explored the smaller bays near the small village of Abãao.
In the evenings there were a lot of bars and restaurants open with live music and a stage set up. We enjoyed getting some food and beer (yes you can drink alcohol out in public here) and taking it down to the pier, watching the lights of the town over the water and listening to the music.
We manage to pass our time very easily in Ilha Grande, and all too soon it was time to move on.
