In the state of Santa Catarina, families and diving practitioners are the two profiles that stand out each season in Bombinhas. Although a priori it seems that both publics have very different interests, they coincide in the search for the tranquility of the sea and the natural pools that form on beaches such as Lagoinha.
While the Arvoredo Island attracts divers by the good visibility of its waters up to 15 meters deep, you can snorkel and swim in many of the 20 beaches of Bombinhas, which has some bustling spas but others more secluded and less crowded.

Feeling of familiarity. The best time is from December to March, but so many Argentines live in Buzios that the tourists of our country choose all year to the old fishing village.

After the beach day, everyone will eat and buy at the Rua das Pedras, the commercial street full of bars, restaurants, shops and agencies that offer different excursions in the region.

Arraial do Cabo.
Upon meeting Cabo Frio is 19 km away., the sea of Buzios is less warm than in other latitudes. Between the 23 beaches Of its 8 km of coastline, the “argentinas” João Fernandes and João Fernandinho, Ferradura (with paradores) and Geribá (waves) stand out, as well as the more peaceful atmosphere of Azeda, Azedinha and do Forno.

Families, young people, couples. The beaches of the South are filled with tourists and locals, from the undulating black and white design of the border of Copacabana, the extensive beaches and a sea with pleasant waves. Precisely there, every December 31 the neighborhood receives almost 2 million people to celebrate the New Year. The beautiful combination of Mount Dois Irmaos on one side and the Arpoador on the other converts the beaches of Ipanema and Leblon into stages of many soap operas.

The tours that everyone repeats: climb the Corcovado to the feet of Christ the Redeemer and take the Sugar Loaf cable car to see the Guanabara Bay from above.

Many young people would only cross to Morro de Pablo to enjoy an island where cars do not circulate, with sunsets and parties on the beach. Older couples and families would go on to life all inclusive that they propose so much Imbassaí and Costa do Sauípe. But thanks to the aerial frequencies that arrive in Salvador, some take advantage to approach the gastronomy, music and religious syncretism of the capital of Bahia.
The historic district of Pelourinho in Bahia.

To the rhythm of the tides. The beaches of Porto de Galinhas grow and shrink by schedule: the waves of the sea – always warm – give rise to a series of natural green and turquoise pools, depending on the depth. To snorkel at strategic points, it is best to hire the famous jungle rides and, to kayak, the large pool that forms the barrier reef at Muro Alto.
Transparent waters. Porto Galinhas is in the state of Pernambuco, northeast of Brazil.
The beaches of Maracaípe and Coupe are two of the best known, while from the sands of a hotel people walk to the shops and restaurants of the town.
