  • In the swamp of the South there is a trail of moderate difficulty that leads us to a paradise, Lagoinha do leste. It is worth every effort, has private boats q tb are the way to go, just talk to the fishermen and close business. The night when the sky is starring a shooting star rain, being able to bathe in the sea or in river. Wonderful place for beautiful photos. I've been several times, and q can always go there.

  • Accessed through trilhas or trails, from Pantano do Sul (1 hour) or from Praia Matadeiro (2 hours); or by boat. If it opts for the trilhas, take enough water and food, since there are not sold (except probably in January and February). We were in March and April and the posts were closed. Not being allowed the construction in this area, is very polluted and there are very few people, even though had trash left by checkpoints which were closed, and some campers quite dirty and left. Beyond that, is a very pure and quiet place to stay in contact with nature and the sea. The lagoon is very nice and warm, with many fish. Must ride if you go to Floripa.
