Great location to stay in - we used an airbnb.
A few (not many) sweet little cafes, with good food and interesting local people.
Has a real vibe to it. very alternative. A bit gritty. Not touristy.
The ferry is cheap, frequent, and reliable.

Boats leave at each 10 minutes or so during day time and up to late night. You will not find boa schedule. Just go there (the main place to take the boat is a small passage by the side of Unimed-Barra/fuel station. Then you have to tell the guy who is driving the boat that you want to go to such and such restaurants, if this is the case. Usually, they just go forth and back, and it takes no more than 2-3 minutes.
