Beaches · Lookouts · Geologic Formations
Just 40 km (25 mi) from Rio de Janeiro, the municipality of Marica boasts natural and man-made attractions along its impressive coastline, as well as inland across a lush, varied landscape. Holidays in Marica tend to start by the sea, either along the highly popular beaches, or on one of the peaceful stretches of sand in the rugged coastline's more secluded bays. Marica's lagoon complex represents one of the largest natural features of its kind in the country and supports a great biodiversity. Inland, fertile land has endowed Marica with a reputation as an agricultural hub, where historical farms display colonial-era architecture, and pleasant, intimate museums proudly detail local history. Plan your holiday in Marica and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Brazil day trip website.
