  • Reasonable ride is it brings all the information you should. The trip is paid, but in my opinion should be part of the city tour offered by the travel agency of Porto Seguro. It's a quick ride, the instructors know the history, but not a place that pays pay to visit.

  • A fast ride, but quite amusing, by history. Has few attractions, being the high point of the ship replica of Cabral, but worth visiting. All very organized, clean, and especially no stalls. The guides ask you not to take pictures as long as they are accompanying us at memorial. I thought it was weird at first, but I soon realized that after the presentation made by the Guide could be free to take pictures.

  • The place is very nice with lots of trees and shade. The monitors super friendly and attentive throughout the tour. The surprising was entering the ship and have a sense of the events of the time. However, I expected more with respect to history, was very brief and lacked a series of events to complement the tour. The visit is well short of a maximum of 30 minutes. Take camera to take pictures of the oca and the Caravel, both in original size.

  • Memorial (which is not a Museum, remember!) very nice for children, many historical curiosities, interesting replicas and native plants. Highlights of the tour, of course, are the Caravel, where we can enter, check how were the structures, take photos and everything else; and the hollow of the Indians-who has no plans to visit an Indian village, it is interesting to know how they make to build your villa. The Playhouse is quite simple, but enchants children! Needed to improve the knowledge of the guides and your diction-who lives in São Paulo, quickly identify the speech decorated "on wheels" of some of them. A souvenir shop rather than a mere "tent with chain of grain of rice" also came in handy. Apparently more attractions in future, but there's no telling how long the structures are there. Anyway, for a family trip is highly recommended, even though R $20 the entry. In Porto Seguro has many "attractions" worst with similar prices.

  • At the entrance are greeted by a person who informs the input value (R $20 per person when I went) and tells him how it works. Then a guide already are and you follow the walk knowing details and facts about the period of the discovery. The guided tour takes around 30 minutes as soon as it arrives in the Caravel and the Guide ends to tell you the stories, you can stay in place for as long as you want to take pictures, make videos and retrace the route. On site is not sold anything to eat or drink, is only a historical tour. The Caravel needs urgent care since it is almost colorless and some woods are corroded or weak, aggravating factor if you take into consideration that the structure is entirely made of wood.

  • The place is beautiful and interesting, but it's expensive for what was offered. The intern (Guide) needs to be more trained and motivated. After all they're telling the history of Brazil.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
