  • My trip was so complete! I stayed in Guaraqueçaba, went by boat to Superagui and enjoyed the quieter beach that one could imagine. For those who like adventure roots, is a good place for walking in the village, to talk to the locals and hear their stories of the island.

  • Beautiful place, but I see that the reception could be improved, with an arrival Centre, showing the history of the Park vegetation and main animals, these things. But in the more Valley too much it just for being so, native.

  • The village is small has a restricted trade and little varied, no seats, no pharmacy or supermarket, there's small sales and some cafes and restaurants ranging from reasonable and great. the trail to the deserted beach is an attraction as well as the beach. Very good!!!
