Use the integrated service
As long as we arrive at the beach, a restaurant offers its services, covering everything.
You may, as we did, reserve your table to lunch in your way back from the pools, choose the menu to have the food ready as soon as you come, and get a ticket to the catamaran operated by the same organization.
There are other options, but this was perfect: No hurries, no stress, no doubts, no wasted time... that's real vacation.
Address: Frutos do Mar - Maragogi
Taking home the underwater photos that you couldn't take by yourself is funny, but I must alert that the quality is poor (I publish the best, after retouching them in my PC) and the price is high.
Anyway, they allow us to watch the CD in place, and that's a guarantee you must use before paying for it.
I use to say to Fernanda that, in the tropics, the sun is dangerous even in the room, at midnight! We always forget that moving here and there we are under the sun.
Swimming, we are under the sun. Even staying in the shade, the reflection in the water... keeps burning.
We are mature, experienced and careful. We can't bypass the pealing skin, but watching some serious scalds in people around us, we feel obliged to a repeated warning: careful! It is your skin and your health...
The top attraction of Maragogi is the reef with the natural pools, that, opposite to some other places in the area, stay quite far from the coast.
The mainly used transport is a catamaran, easy to book in the beach.
It costs R75 per person (oh, the inflation! I paid only 30) , and provides a quick transportation to the pools, where it stays, waiting for the return and providing some assistance, with small but useful shadow.
