An O Verde Eco tour is the O Verde Eco Tours (click here for info on sustainability) Anonymous

An O Verde Eco tour is the only way to truly take advantage of everything Ihla Grande has to offer. Our tour guide Gigi was very knowledgable and also very passionate about the environment. The island is naturally breathtaking and a simple one day excursion is not enough to experience it all. The snorkeling excursion is highly recommended and you even have the option of having Gigi take amazing underwater pictures.

I had a greta time staying at Caiçara Pousada Anonymous

I had a greta time staying at Caicara Pousada, with the water facing you as you step out of the hotel, you can never go wrong. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. This Pousada is located in the center of everything, with restaurants to your left and shops to your right I didn't feel like I missed a thing. Exciting enough for the night but still quiet enough after an exhausting day, this place is a definite recommendation. With sustainable environment awareness in their daily works and efficiency all around, Caicara Pousada will definitely be seeing me again soon.

Anyone can see Ilha Grande, O Verde Eco Tours (click here for info on sustainability) Anonymous

Anyone can see Ilha Grande, but you wont really be seeing Ilha Grande without an O Verde Eco tour. Gigi has the no how on what to see, where to swim, where to climb, where to eat and so much more. She shows you Ilha Grande in a way that you wouldn't know it existed. With under water excursions in beautiful lagoons, hikes up to mile long beaches, lunch on little islands off the coast, its great. Her knowledge, love and passion for the conservation of the island makes you see the world in a beautiful light and it was great to get a chance to see it through her eyes.
