This adventure takes place in the most exciting part of Da Contas river, in Taboquinhas, where conservation, agriculture and tourism are integrated.
Our tour begins in Itacaré where our Tour Leader will be waiting at the lobby of the hotel at 09:00 am to give you the first instructions of this adventure. We will take our transportation and drive 28 kilometers from Itacaré through the Atlantic Forest to reach Taboquinhas.
This was a very rich and important city at the time of production of "Cacau" (base of chocolate) but due to a plague (Vassoura da Bruxa) lost its economic power which placed it among the most famous cities in the area. It began to be abandoned, but that paved the way for local agriculture and conservation of the Atlantic Forest, because the Cacao needed the shade of other trees to grow.
Also, currently sustainable tourism is developed with activities such as rafting and zip line among others.
Rafting on Da Contas river is an exciting adventure of about two hours, in which we will descend 3 kilometers of rapids level III and IV . All with the necessary safety equipment for the practitioners. We will have a previous instructive talk to learn how to use the equipment and how to work as a team on the raft.
Also, we will have the opportunity to slide down a fun zip line that begins high and ends into the river.
After this activities, we'll have lunch in Taboquinhas for to be back in Itacaré at about 16:00.
Money for lunch.
