Cardosa river, Barreirinhas

(3.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Super different and interesting activity, you go down the River on floats, with a guide directing the course and helping if you have a problem, as well as indicate the stop bath areas. A lot of fun!

  • This was the only place that I have witnessed, but people tell me it's a great place, so I can't say until I get back and enjoy

  • Downriver of buoy was reasonable ride, but, even more interesting was to meet the local people who live on the banks of the river.
