This tour will take you to the west part of Rio, a more untouched area where nature still shouts. Driving along the coastline and passing by Reserva Beach and Marapendi Lagoon, our first stop is at Chico Mendes Park, a protected area where is possible to see* caimans, capybaras and visit the project where biology students treat animals to release them back to their habitat. After that we'll head to Prainha, a cute small beach, the surfers preferred spot, where we'll do a 1,5h hike to Caeté summit (143m = 470ft) that reveals an amazing view of the coast and the mountains of Rio where, with some imagination, you can see the 'sleeping giant' laying down.
