Full description
Your full-day adventure begins with pickup from Rio de Janeiro then heads to Armação dos Búzios, a former fishing village located on a north coast peninsular. Arrive in Búzios and board a traditional-style schooner boat for a ride around the region’s most picturesque beaches. Highlights include João Fernandes Beach, Ilha Feia (Ugly Island), and Praia da Tartaruga (Turtle Beach), with stops for diving and snorkeling along the way.

After the boat trip, stroll along the vibrant Orla Bardot where you can find the statue of Brigitte Bardot, a renowned French actress who in 1964 escaped the paparazzi and went on vacation in the city. Once you’ve worked up a bit of an appetite, dine on a delicious buffet lunch at a local restaurant to restore your energy for the rest of the day.

Next, enjoy free time to explore the colorful downtown of Búzios at your own leisure. Visit the most famous street in Búzios, Rua das Pedras, and peruse its shops, bars, and restaurants that are bursting with authentic charm. As you wander, soak up the charismatic atmosphere of this former fishing village that has adopted tourism as one of its main activities, becoming one of the most visited cities in Brazil. At the end of an unforgettable day, sit back and relax on the return journey to Rio de Janeiro.
