No roads lead to this place.

    On the other side of the river you may board a buggy car for a crazy 40 minute ride through the sand dunes (optional activity not included in price). We will make stops for photographs and the ride will finish at the top ranked beach in Bahia beach for swimming. We will stop at a beach restaurant with food and drinks (not included), showers, and hammocks to take a nap.
