This is a great place, very safe with lots of services to fulfill your needs (food, drinks, buoyancy devices, etc) although not cheap (36 reais per person) you will see a lot of fishes and have a great swim amongst them!

Nice place to relax and swim amidst fish. Not the most crystal clear water (due to great amount of rain recently) but still worth a visit. The fish are quite big and stay all around you in the water. It is fun to feed them!...More
