Paquetá Island is a small island located in the northeastern part of Guanabara Bay in Rio. Because it is so easy to reach, Paquetá is perfect for a day trip out of town. Arriving on the island of Paquetá seems like a return to the past. Most importantly, there are no cars on the island, only small golf carts and bicycles. As soon as you leave the ferry terminal, you will notice how quiet and peaceful everything is. Some sources claim that about 4.000 people live here. The island is very visited because it is one of the unavoidable attractions of Rio, but you will not get the impression that you are here with a large number of people, on the contrary, you will have the impression that only you and the group with whom you came by ferry are there.
The Big Island or Ilha Grande in Portuguese is a popular field trip from Rio de Janeiro known for its beaches, green mountains and the fact that there are no cars on the island. The island is located between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Once you reach the island, you will have numerous beaches and restaurants at your disposal. We advise you to board the ferry as early as possible in the morning to have time to enjoy the island. Visits usually last from 6am to 8am.
