Arraial do Cabo: ATV Quad Bike Tour

2. Arraial do Cabo: ATV Quad Bike Tour

Proceed to the meeting point at the Praia Grande beachfront in Arraial do Cabo where the guide will welcome you for an unforgettable ride in the "Brazilian Caribbean". A training on how to drive the equipment will be given by the guide. The driver of the quadricycle must have a Driver's License Category B. The adventure begins at the Pedreira da Álcalis, impressed by the immensity of the rocky wall and the exuberant nature of the place. Next stop is Praia do Pontal, the first beach in Arraial do Cabo and one of the most remote ones, where you will enjoy with tranquility all the beauty of the crystal clear water and white sand characteristic of the city. We continue our tour to another surprising place in the region, the Barra Nova Lagoon, located on the border between Arraial do Cabo and Cabo Frio, its reddish color contrasts with the blue water of Praia do Foguete, with only a strip of sand that divides the lagoon from the sea. We end the tour in the sandbank of Praia Grande, a place surrounded by white sand dunes and one of the best known beaches in the region. This itinerary is subject to change.

Our guide Mariana was incredibly personable. Unfortunately we were promised an early pick up but not kept. Had to wait at the pier at 7am for over an hour early in the morning. Boat good but extremely loud. Music selection not necessarily for every taste. I suspect the exuberant party mood was more at the start of the Carneval in Brazil.

Our guide was very attentive- we felt like we had our own bodyguard. Good food, amazing beaches. The boat could do with a paint job.

Very Good. Guide Maiara grade 10. Organization, punctuality grade 10.
