Arraial do Cabo is a cost city of Rio de Janeiro State. Rich in natural seascapes and one of the best places for diving in Brazil.

Always I can I visit Arraial do Cabo city. It is a wonderful place if you look for nature contact and fantastic beachs of calm clean waters. To me Arraial have the most pretties beachs of Rio de Janeiro State, together with the ones at Ilha Grande and Paraty cities.

Between the attraction there are:

- diving, since Arraial have a very wide sea life including sea turtles, Atlantic goliath grouper, squid, lobsters, rays and dolphins.

- boat tour with tours lasting 4 hours. The itinerary normaly include the Prainhas beachs, the lighthouse island, the Blue Grotto, Forno Beach and the floating restaurant that serves seafood dishs.

- the Pontal do Atalaia sunset, a nice thing to couples do because of the romantic scene it forms. Besides the it is 180 meter above sea level which result in great panoramic view from the seacoast.

- and finaly the Our Lady of Remedies, one of the most old churchs in Brazil dating from 1503.

In this trip I went there with my wife when she was still pregnant (with 20 weeks) from my son Pedro. So she was quite nauseous during the boat rides, but she stood firm.
