Saco do Mamangua Expedition

We will leave the pier located in the historical center of paraty in the direction of the Cairuçu Environmental Protection Area, where Saco do Mamanguá is located. We will board a speedboat, which provides a delightful adventure climate due to its high speed of navigation. The path itself is a sideshow, with an incredible landscape of great natural wealth, where you can still be lucky enough to find turtles and dolphins swimming freely!The region has 33 beaches, where most are deserted, and 8 caiçaras communities that shelter the cultural diversity of the region. During the tour we will make 3 stops where it is possible to snorkel, enjoying even more of the natural beauties and marine life! The first of these is in Praia do Engenho, which has this name because near the beach, in the middle of the forest, are the ruins of an old sugar plantation. Our second stop is at Praia do Costa, where we will have approximately 40 minutes to relax and enjoy its calm waters and emerald green. Our last stop will be on the Islet of Mamangua.
