Why take this tour?

We board a shared speedboat that will take us to the paradisiacal Praia do Cuzeiro in Saco do Mamanguá (40 min. trip). We'll do the 466 meter ascent trail from base to the peak of the fantastic Sugarloaf Mountain. We will have a walk of 1:15 am, the trail can result from a difficult level with some steep stretches. Arriving at Pico, we'll have time to relax contemplating the landscapes we'll stay there for around 40 minutes. The return trip is a 40-minute descent to Praia do Cruzeiro, where we can enjoy a nice swim and maybe buy a lunch in a typical and traditional caiçara restaurant (there are no electronic payment, cash only, go prepared) . After this stop, we will return by fastboat to the Paraty pier. **Important** Minimum age for this activity 14 years Minors must present a document signed by their responsibles
