2 days in llha grande

Need help to plan 2 days at llha Grande:

Day1 :

Reach Island at 10 AM - hoping someone picks us from airport at 8 AM or before.

Tour 1 - Lagoa Verde (Green Lagoon)Lagoa Azul (Blue Laggon) Praia do Amor, Saco do Ceu: Camiranga Beach


Day 2 : Tour 2 - Cataguás Island: ; Botinas Islands; Gipoia Island: Dentist's Beach ;Piedade Beach:

Ferry anytime after 4:30 PM and head to Copa beach

Do you have any suggestion on tour companies for each day?

I want to cover Lopes Mendes Beach, How can I incorporate it in my plan?

Feel free to help me to move things around.

Am I missing anything important on island?

Shall I take only 1 tour and do something local on first day?

We like to explore places; don't like chilling on beach for long - maybe 2 hrs is good for us; I can't swim but my bro can swim; hiking; nature lovers; etc.

It's clear that you don't have real notions about Ilha Grande.

First you have to be 8AM already in Conceição do Jacareí.

Here you can have more notions about schedules and they also provide transfers.


I really doubt about the viability of this plan. good luck!

We organised our transfer from Galeāo airport to Ilha Grande via Conceição de Jacareí with Prime Tour Transfer. We travelled as a family of two adults and one 2-year-old baby. They were attentive and helpful through the booking process and outbound transfer was done on time and safely with a baby chair as we requested. We paid the whole transfer price in cash at the end of the transfer. I should have asked for a receipt, I’m afraid I did not. Unfortunately returning from Ilha Grande to Conceição de Jacareí we found out the driver did not have the baby chair to drive back to Galeāo airport. We (ourselves, the driver and other local agencies) tried to ring and message our Prime Tour contact names Vitor many times to resolve the issue. Unfortunately our calls were not answered. After one hour trying to do so we had to organise a local taxi with a baby chair to drive us back safely and lawfully. Although Vitor had called their driver before the taxi arrived he did not explain what had gone wrong or at least had the decency to speak to us. In fact, 4 days have gone now and he has yet contacted us to apologise. Although we had additional costs with the taxi, we have been more frustrated by the lack of professionalism and respect by the company and Vitor for not assisting us in resolving the issue we had which was related to returning safely to our final destination. For this reason, we do not recommend Prime Tour Transfer.
