  • It's a beautiful ride. The schooner leaves you on the high seas, where there is a formation of a sandbar with corals, creating an island. There you can get out and walk (take a sturdy footwear, like crocs), getting to see fish, hedgehogs ... At the end, you go back to the schooner which goes through some mangroves where there's a mud bath (mangue), boring part of the ride. It's worth it!

  • We went on the recommendation of the guide of the historic centre and we love is suitable to go in particular since it is much more economic and Santa Cruz Cabrália this just a few kms from Coroa Vermelha ride boats out until 10.30 hs and the cost is 75 reais in the same place rent snorkelling to 10 real team the boat leaves port and makes a brief stop in San Andres Beach , then continued to Coroa high important take sunscreen since there is no shade the place is super cute more beyond that has more or less fish... DPS is for lunch, where the food is to the weight, is rich and in Dps lunch price runs the river where are all the manguesales, interesting learning about that to end up in the "island of the Sun" where they sell things sweet, crabs are and can be a mud bath...

Where to stay in Santa Cruz Cabralia

Most accommodations in Santa Cruz Cabralia lie in the relatively small area within a few blocks of the beach and the coastal highway, south of the mouth of the river. Just about anywhere in town lies within easy walking distance of the ocean and historic sites, though to access the older part of town you'll need to hike up the bluff occupied by the church. While a few larger hotel complexes do exist in the city, the majority of places to stay come in the form of "pousadas," essentially family- or independently run guesthouses, bungalows, and bed and breakfasts that often occupy historical buildings, and generally at budget-friendly rates.
