Get to know a part of Rio unknown to many carioca’s (people born in the city of Rio)… Today we head to the wetlands of Rio…Hidden in the middle of Barra da Tijuca’s neighborhood we will find its lagoons. Aboard a “chalana” (kind of boat), you will have the opportunity to ride along these waters to learn about the amazing biodiversity as well as its struggle to survive. Some of the wildlife you may spot includes alligators, capybaras and exotic species of birds. Stop at a local restaurant to have lunch (not included).

After lunch, we board the “chalana” again through the channels and by the many islands and feel the breeze while admiring the lush green forest surrounding these waters. Return to hotel. End of our services.
