quick trip to ilha grande on xmas + 1 or 2 days

by dsldsl Online Now Dec 23, 2008 at 1:25 PM

I'm traveling to rio to meet friends for NYE and have 2 or 3 days to myself before they arrive. I would like to go to Ilha Grande for a few days and explore, and have a few qs:

- weather right now will suck and I shouldnt go or is OK and worth checking out anyway?

- do i need to call around and book a reservation now, or just show up? im looking for hostel style cheap accommodation. are the options listed on the ilhagrande tourism website the way to go?

- anyone have info on diving? i'd love to dive for a day if possible.

- if i only have 1 or 2 days/nights on the island, what should i be sure to do? i know, personal choice but please share opinions...

- THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    We are in rainy season. So I suggest you check out how is weather at Ilha Grande.
    Brazilians use to go to beachs and spots in holidays. So I suggest you book a reservation now. Ilha Grande may be crowded.
    Diving is OK in Ilha Grande and Angra dos Reis.
    There are no cars in Ilha Grande.
