Great place for snorkeling in search of sharks and bigger sea creatures. I personally saw 2 species of sharks, a huge turtle and a lobster. Memories for a lifetime.

Hi, I guess you will have to count somewhere between 400-500Euros. Sounds like a lot but Brazil is a huge country. In fact, the flight takes around 4 hr 30 min including a stop in Recife. Check the websites from Brazilians... More
