4.5
#3 of 10 in Nature in Cabo Frio
Whether you scuba dive, snorkel, or simply love nature and landscapes, head out to Papagaios Island while you're in Cabo Frio. You can only reach the nearby island by vessel, be it a dive boat, a scenic cruise boat, or a sea kayak. The warm northerly and cool southerly currents meet around Papagaios Island, attracting a diversity of marine life—including tropical and pelagic fish, crustaceans, and sea turtles—to impress scuba divers and snorkelers. If you prefer to stay above the water's surface, you can join a boat tour that includes Papagaios Island and two other nearby islands. Papagaios Island features lush vegetation, and short trails enable you to quickly explore the island before hopping back on your boat.

    I did the walk out of time ... Bad!! We didn't see anything!! A few parrots! Not worth it!! Besides, it is necessary to wake up too early (4:00) ....

    Is the end point of the boat ride (in the Itajuru channel access), where boats stop to diving personnel. Extremely cold water. Visual beautiful, many birds on the site ... but I confess I was expecting "more" of the site.

Where to stay in Cabo Frio

The main bulk of Cabo Frio's accommodations lies between Avenida Teixeira e Souza and Praia do Forte. In this area, choose from pousadas (guesthouses), hostels, and small hotels with rooms at budget to mid-range prices. A few luxury options lie along the sand and the water here, with good views of the surrounding landscape.
