The visit to Ilha Gigóia was absolutely beautiful! We took a scenic boat ride and got to see different animals like birds and crocodiles before we ended up at a restaurant. We got to eat delicious food and converse in Portuguese while looking out at the amazing view of the water and mountains.

This time, we had a fantastic group of students exploring Gigoia Island. We visited all ten islands around Lagoa da Tijuca and even had the chance to spot some unique animals, including alligators and woodpeckers. Unfortunately, the capybaras were playing hide-and-seek this week, so we didn’t get to see them this time. Our boat guide shared fascinating insights about the islands and dropped us off at a charming restaurant with an incredible view of the Mangue and its beautiful nature.
