  • Forget the name Cross Ball because it's more relaxing ball. To reach Cardosa, where is part of the river Ant with this attraction, you will walk a good piece of Gardener. According to the Guidebook, are approximately 12. Get ready for the "saculejo", because the roads are sand and swaying. On the way, stop at one point pretty simple craft, but with almost everything you see on other tours. The River runs slow, and buoys are truck tire Chambers. Yes, those black ones. If you watch out not to get one that is pierced (some are). Do not use anything that can't get wet. If something fell into the River, although its waters are transparent, are unlikely to be able to recover, because in many places it has seaweed. It doesn't matter whether you can swim or not, because it will sit/lie on the ball and the guys are going to walk into the river and leading them not to stranding on the river bank or in the branches. Is approximately 1:00 floating until you reach on a string that indicates the end of the tour. If you know how to swim can go up and down the ball, move the will not to get tired. The gardener lets everyone at the beginning and at the end, where search has a flour mill, a hammock area and a bar with a few groceries to sell at fair prices. Hot coffee and cassava chips, fish, tapioca ... very good.

  • Great for closing the tours! It's pretty relaxing float trip on the river Ant, pale waters and optimum temperature, landscape very beautiful too.
