Approximately 3 Hours
At the pier, board an air-conditioned van heading for the downtown area of Ilhabela, stopping for photos at the Barreiros Viewpoint.
Step inside Ilhabela's foremost church, Nossa Senhora d'Ajuda, built in 1806; then, continue past the Princess' House and visit the Agua Branca Waterfall.
A scenic 15-minute drive brings you to the Toca Waterfalls, located on the site of an old sugar and banana plantation. The sugar plantation was founded here in 1937 for the production of cachaça -- liquor made from fermented sugar cane juice. You'll have an hour to explore the area, with a guided visit to the three main falls. Taste the famous cachaça and pause for photos of Gilmar Pinna's sculptures at the beach garden before returning to the ship.
Depending on the humidity level, biting or stinging insects may be present -- bring insect repellent. Not suitable for guests who are allergic to insect stings. Bring a sealable baggie to protect your wallet, cell phone, camera, camcorder and other belongings from the humidity. Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen and a hat.
