  • A shame! Place of beautiful nature, but delivered the "employees" without any preparation on vegetation or history, who insist on "sell" everything there is to do there, like canoeing, zip line, food and drink, guided trail ... We wanted to make the tracks only, walking, and it was really hard to get rid of the guide that was charging 30 reais (already being charged 10.00 per person for the ticket-warn that there's too much risk of being robbed on the trail without a guide?!?). There is no indication of the plates and the path is very rustic. The location for bathing is minimal, unless you take the kayak (30.00) or canoe (40.00). Anyway, I don't want to stay!

  • I love
  • The site is an amazing natural beauty, but the Organization of the buffer to receive the people is disappointing. I booked a tour with my students, I've emailed, copy of the craft, called the Guide, ultimately left all set. When we got there the Ordinance did not know our schedule, that would guide us was taking a course, a great disorganization. We got a last minute guide without the necessary preparation, demonstrated a complete inability to deal with Group of young, super low voice, inaccurate ... Terrible. To complete we couldn't have access to the plant nursery, because the person in charge was not available. Only worth it due to the natural beauty of the place. The irresponsibility of the organizers put a good part of my plan, since it was a field trip to the collection of information.

  • Great ride!! If you don't go for a tour company, find out what's the weather in the area before you go. The road is dirt and if it's small car, likely to be jammed.

  • Totally insecure, people get mugged, marginals are in the Woods when people spend they announce the assault! You pay to get in, and the snake still guide a value depending on the person, if a tourist he charges absurd. I'm angry!

Where to stay in Praia do Forte

In the main village area of Praia do Forte, find mid-range pousadas (guesthouses), rental apartments, and hostels, with options catering to a wide selection of tastes and budgets. Forego the sea view if you want to economize; fortunately, you don't need to compromise in terms of location, since all of the village's accommodations lie within walking distance of the sea. A couple of luxury resorts occupy more spacious areas, with amenities such as pools, spas, and restaurants. Book in advance, due to the relatively small number of lodgings available.
