  • Since then. Absolutely beautiful place, as to be expected, but some things are not well organized, and local tourism, visa 100% to explore. We make the dive that, we stopped at an establishment called "Caribbean maracajau" we were led to the site by a man who guided us with a motorcycle. We got to the establishment, and the guy already began to push the ride to the coral reefs. Okay selling the bread to R$ 80.00 per person. How we missed the first to arrive there we were kind of like that, but we bought. Inform us the time we were going to come out (which was not fulfilled) and we had to reserve lunch. Since then, before we left, I heard the same boy who sold us the ride, including him and the owner, selling about 50.00 R$ ride to other people. Thought that was very disrespectful. I don't mean to make a big deal out of it, because we were taking vacation. But at the same time being exploited. I have a lot more talking about that same location, but here I will conclude my ratings.

  • The first thing to know about the tide. If it is a full moon or new great, otherwise is compromised the dive. Do not ride in small catamarans, because these rock too and it is easy to get sick. Small catamaran for sale structure not water or snacks. Stay far away of the largest coral reefs, diving is not so good. There are bars at the entrance selling small catamarans and tours are full of proposals liars, as non-existent and discount meals on the card, but when you'll pay is debit card, that's what happened to us in the Caribbean of Maracajaú, where the waiters are nice, but the owner is rude and impolite.

  • That wonderful beach! Hot water, quiet without waves makes you want to get off the water. Great for practicing kitesurf, ATV riding, Buggy and horse! When you return to natal certainly come back on this beach! The beach does not have much structure of tents, the ideal is to link with the MAnoa park because there's structure.
