Why take this tour?

#Itsaboutthejourney - Our hike is in the midst of the beauty and biodiversity of the Atlantic Forest, the route is part of an unpaved road, part of trails that require resistance and physical preparation. With many attractions along the way, such as the viewpoint of Curva da Morte ☠, Poço dos Soldados, stone pavement (made by enslaved people and widely used in the 19th century), Caxadaço beach, a small paradisiacal beach with crystal clear water very inviting to the practice of snorkeling that is hidden behind a huge wall of rocks that makes it invisible to those who sail even close to the coast, for this reason it was often used by pirates and slave ships for the trafficking of enslaved people. To complete this spectacular walk, we arrived at Lopes Mendes a wild beach that is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world where we will have free time to enjoy this earthly paradise.
