The entire island of Ilha Grande is covered in Tropical Forest, a forest of lush an varied vegetation. There are plenty of trails for you to hike and explore. You can walk for miles through this rich jungle, which provides a cool atmosphere, sheltering you from the hot sun. It’s abundant with monkeys, colorful birds, beautiful lookout points, exuberant fauna, coves, and waterfalls where you can take a refreshing dip. Bring your own water, as there is no one who sells it along the way. Enjoy a picnic with your loved ones at one of the tables and benches along the way. Tropical Forest is truly a sensory experience with all the colorful sights and interesting sounds provided by the monkeys and the birds.

    Go to the big island since I was born and I assure you that there is no place in the world more tropical and beautiful there. The island is almost 100% tropical native forest, PRESERVED, clean and your eco-protected system. Account with long trails through the Woods and the charms of all its beaches and cliffs. I'm in love with the big island and every 2 months, frequent the place, eco-consciousness ensures local tourism, much frequented by tourists from all over the world.

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.
