  • In a simple and well organized, the Eco-Museum brings together from the ground to the roof a Rico local people's knowledge of the big island, the famous beaches. should be an obligatory stop for every tourist. Learn about the place is the heart of the whole trip! I was enchanted by everything I've seen, and with the amount of subjects and research contained in that location. Opinion of residents, storytellers, everything. It really is a place where everyone should go!

  • Museum located in the town of two rivers, has a bit of the history of the site which housed the Cândido Mendes old prison where the dealer Stepladder fled by helicopter and also housed political prisoners as Gracialiano and Branches where the mixture of political prisoners with common prisoners gave home to the Red Command. Only the facade of the Presidio intact, it was demolished and deactivated in 1994.

  • There are a few ways to get at the Presidio disabled (two rivers). Going by boat (Super ride South, leaving the Village of Abraham), on foot or by bike (also leaving the Township of Abraham). It is possible to rent bicycles in the village of Abraham by R $40.00 (all day). I chose to walk even. It took me a little over 1 hour to get from Abraham until the town of two rivers. Entry to the Museum is free and the staff are super polite. Even left my dog in with me ... lol ... There you will have the chance to meet several stories of the inmates and the prison officials. I like very much to have gone there. It totally holds (and I followed him to this occasion by trail Parnaioca).

  • A very Rico in the history of the prison system; the design of isolation of undesirables, the exile, the political prisons. Worth the visit to the Museum of the jail and the trail there. Not to mention the beautiful beach of two rivers. The village, although inhabited, is clearly abandoned and needy of public services; which is a shame.

  • The walk is long, but worth knowing the history of ilha grande. The people is also interesting.

Where to stay in Ilha Grande

The village area by the dock is home to the largest number of Ilha Grande's accommodations, with options varying from family-run, rustic pousadas (guesthouses) to mid-range and luxury hotels. Elsewhere on the island, you'll find upscale resorts offering wide-ranging amenities, such as swimming pools, bars, restaurants, and spas. Though most lodgings lie along the coast, a couple of options farther inland situate you in scenic parts of the jungle interior. Alternatively, head back to the mainland to sleep at one of the simple hotels in Conceicao de Jacarei, the destination of the Ilha Grande ferry service.
