If you want to see a little part of the nature and mangrova go to this place. 25 reals for a person and you'll see a lot of fishes, crabs

You can take buggy tours to get to many locations, but we decided to go at our leisure and take a cab. People advised at going at low to mid tide and I would agree. The guide said it is good because the water is clearer when the tide starts coming in. Just don't go at lowest tide or there... More

we expected something more interesting. the river is not deep at all, the boats (jangas) are very colourfull and nice, but the ride itself and eevn sea horses are not really intersting, if you do not do your own snorkling

The first thing to be mentioned is: it costs 20 reais per person, so with that in mind, let's start. It is a tour around the junction of the river and the ocean. You will be able to ride along the river, see the seahorses and enjoy the view. It takes around 40min and it is better to be done... More

It was worth going just for the experience although I use the word experience loosely. We were taken there by the buggy guide who told us what the best time to go was but it wasn't and i think that's because he was more concerned about us spending money in a restaurant than seeing the seahorses.

The guys from jeep take you there but you should know about sea and tide. They know but to make money they take you there even there is no water because the tide. I feel disappointed about this attraction I felt silly by bug drivers.

We walked to the river during low tide just to walk across the "river" when there was no water. It was an unique experience to see the sand formation of the river bed. Didn't do the boat tour, so can't comment on that.

Is a little river there you take the *jangada* boat and they take you for 1-2 hours tour on the river. The water is not that clean but the 20 real is worth it
