    On the way to Cabo Frio, our knowledgable guide gives you an insight about the “Lakes Region” and what we are going to be seeing in the 3-day trip.

    Once we arrive at our centrally-located accommodation, we take a stroll around downtown Arraial Do Cabo and go for delicious traditional lunch nearby. 

    Arraial do Cabo is a heaven with dozens of beaches with blue sea and clear waters to be chosen. Just after lunch, we take a 3-hour beach buggy tour exploring the gorgeous beaches, incredible landscapes, and lookouts contemplating the local natural beauties. 

    After, we head back to Cabo Frio to relax a little before catching up in the evening for a few drinks.  

    Be introduced to Cabo Frio nightlife, we visit the downtown fulls of bars, live shows, restaurants, pizza places, ice cream parlors, and shops. On the banks of the Itajurú Canal, the Boulevard Canal is a great option for those who want to go out at night and have fun. In addition, the canal offers a beautiful view of the lagoon waters and anchored boats.

     By Night Cabo Frio

    Once night falls, we are going to go out exploring the nightlife areas of the charming town of Búzios. The city is reputed to offer excellent options for those who want to extend the fun beyond the sand, sea and sun. 

    The excitement in Búzios begins with the sunset, when tourists leave the beaches and go to strategic bars to have a cold beer and delicious snacks while seeing the sunset.

    When night comes, it's time to tour around the main gastronomic hub in town, the “Pedras St”. It is full of live music, delicious bars and very lively people. It’s the perfect place to start the night's work. We take a table and drink, keep an eye on the neighbors and enjoy chatting in several languages. Yeah! Búzios provides a beautiful mix of Brazilians and gringos. All together makes Búzios night one of the best features of the city.

      

  • On our third and last day, it’s time to get moving. After breakfast, we drive 10 minutes to the "São Mateus Fort" is in the city of Cabo Frio. It’s is one of the oldest colonial buildings in Brazil. 

    In addition to its historical importance, the fort has breathtaking views of the coastline and unparalleled nature of the canal exit.

    As we continue, discover some of the coolest touristic areas of Búzios catching sights and doing some shopping. The downtown Búzios works as a large open-air mall and goes far beyond a mere set of shop windows. The place is one of the main tourist spots in Búzios and attracts people throughout the day, not only for the quality of the stores, but also for the restaurants that are there.

    The stroll can go to Orla Bardot, where the restaurants and national and international shops by the sea makes the atmosphere even more charming. The path continues to "Ossos Beach", where there are studios of local artists that sell unique pieces of art and antique.
