    Accommodation in Ilha Grande: Pousada Maria Bonita; Fazenda Paraiso do Sol.
    Snorkeling spots: Freguesia de Santana Leste, Sitio Forte, Vermelha, Ponta e Gruta do Acaiá, Ilha do Jorge, Praia dos Mangues, Ilha Pau a Pino.
    Ilha Grande is a ecological national spot. There are many trecks in the island availing treking and snorkeling. However the accommodations I registered to you may serve transportations to customers.
    For treking and sightseeing the spots are: Caxadaço, Pico da Pedra d'Agua, Pico do Papagaio, Provetá, Vila do Abraão, Saco do Ceu, Preta. You may find lighter round island sailing in Vila do Abraão. Vila do Abraão is also the most inhabited village. There you may find shoppings.

    You may reach Ilha Grande by ferry. The departure docks are in Mangaratiba, Angra dos Reis or Rio de Janeiro(Conerj).
    Pousada Maria Bonita serve a schooner to sail. I am pasteing some interesting links to you:
