Cardosa river, Barreirinhas

Water Body
A guided float down Cardosa river, but only after a grueling truck ride. The river's secluded location requires an adventurous ride in a truck along dirt roads. However, once you've arrive you'll forget all about the truck as you're confronted with the beauty of the river's pure waters. Mount your innertube and float on the river's current. At the end of the tour you'll be served traditional fare along with a cold drink and an ice cream treat. Plan your visit to Cardosa river and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Barreirinhas vacation planner.

  • The site has no restaurant infrastructure, only a tent at the exit point to sell drink and in the place of arrival has a point of sale of cassava, fried fish, tapioca. But surely it's worth at relax that is down the river Ant.

  • We went to the location of the exit of the ride in those trucks style gardener as well. Getting there each get your float and goes down some time via the river cardosa. Ideally, each holding the other float to go down together. It's not dangerous but I haven't found anything too much. In the end, the transport will be waiting with all your belongings ... The truck had a flat in the back and was a disorder. The driver had to wait for someone to bring a Jack to lift the car because he didn't have. Without structure!

  • Interesting is different. Basically float down the river. Beautiful place. Road a bit tiring.
