  • I went to see the sunset, but my friend, they won't let them. Pay for parking. Pay for a boat. You pay dearly for the drink. Impressive as Pernambuco was plotted to extort the tourist.

  • With and without clouds, good images can be achieved in both ways. Watch out for the rafts, they charge you R$10 to take you when the tide gets a little bigger. You can actually walk as the water does not go beyond the waist.
