Rio Formiga, Barreirinhas

3.6
#4 of 11 in Outdoors in Barreirinhas
A guided float down Rio Formiga, 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. Make Rio Formiga a centerpiece of your Barreirinhas vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Barreirinhas itinerary builder.

    The company hired for the ride you caught us at the Inn and we were in a 4 x 4 wheel drive truck. Part of the road is paved but most of it is not; What causes we're quite dusty. You arrive in a town where we packed some full truck Chambers (buoys) we entered the river Ant on them and the down. This route is 1:00. The truck will pick us up at the end of the path. The view is magnificent rio is spotless and the deepest part of it is no more than 1, 5 m, more are very few places that he is deep. We were in a group of 12 people and two Natives do the ride with us in helping to not get enrrascados in vegetation. At the end of the course, are some beautiful children to live, selling a small craft, but, since we didn't know if we could take the bag because, as we were going down to the River, where the leave? Do not take anything and we can't help them!

    We took a float floating on the river Ant in Cardosa/Barreirinhas. Is 1:15 a very beautiful and relaxing. The guide is leading the group, and the ride is very safe. Recommend!

    The hostels offer this tour to 70.00 dollars, and if you go by car until then pays 2.00 reais by buoy and 25.00 reais for the Guide, one per group. And other advice ask our guide let you free, because they tend to push you and you end up not enjoying the current.

Where to stay in Barreirinhas

Barreirinhas serves mainly as a jumping off point for visiting the nearby national park, so the town's accommodation options remain relatively limited and fairly expensive. Guesthouses near the town center are probably your best bet, the majority offering clean but very basic rooms with few frills. You won't find any luxurious hotels here, but you can choose between several mid-range establishments providing air-conditioned rooms with parking and tree-shaded outdoor areas.
