    The sea was not able to go to coroa alta, places were cute but it is preferable to spend the day in a different way. The worst thing is that at the time of shipping after visiting santo Andre, sailors seized a turtle and began to pass it from hand to hand to people. Perhaps seem fun, but we are talking of a living being that is on the verge of extinction. I do not recommend it for anything, not only by this ugly experience but not the ride worth.

    We did a schooner cruise leaving Santa Cruz de Cabrália and one of the highlights is High Crown is not exactly a beautiful site. Is a large bench of sand in the sea which is exposed at low tide, the site also has coral reefs which can be admired only in a snorkeling. Still, depending on the tide, you cannot see anything. No luck, the day the weather was cloudy and we couldn't see anything at all. How I regret having done this ride, I lost a whole day that could have been much better spent. The tour includes two more stops: island of Santo André and Sun island. What they don't say is that they are fully commercial charts. On the island of St. Andrew to stop is for lunch in a Self Service restaurant that does not accept payment with credit card. The other is on the island of the Sun which, according to them, is the island of candy. A real cheat bundles the full ride are common sweets we found anywhere else, sky-high prices and a rotten mangrove mud bath, the chart is just for that. If repentance killed ...

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.
