A typical day might include boating, swimming, fishing, or just relaxing in a hammock… Then join your friends at a beachside kiosk for churrasco (Brazilian-style barbecue) and icy-cold beer poured for each person from large shared bottles… or enjoy the freshest of seafood, caught the same days as it is cooked.
For those who love the outdoor life, this little corner of Brazil is hard to beat. Whether you want to get in shape, photograph lovely scenery, or simply relax over beer and barbecue at the beach… this place is a nature-lover’s paradise.
And, while Vila Velha in many respects is like a scaled-down version of Rio, it differs in one important respect: Vila Velha is much cheaper, particularly its real estate.
