Nov 26, 2009 - Ilha do Mel

After arriving in Paranagua on the Serra Verde Express we took a boat to Ilha do Mel, which is a beautiful island just off the coast of Brazil where there are no roads and no cars. We spent a few days relaxing on this beautiful island, enjoying the gorgeous beaches and lots of nice cold beers for Adrian and caipirinhas for me!

Dec 23, 2007 - Ilha do Mel - `The beach'

Took a bus from Morretes to Paranagua and then a boat to Ilha do Mel for Christmas. What a difference Christmas on the Island was from the UK - a very low key affair with the main celebration being on Christmas Eve. We were called to dinner in our hotel at the normal time only to find coffee and cake - much to John's dismay! Luckily a huge feast was laid on later in the evening including a suckling pig, a huge fish and two turkeys! Ilha do Mel is a beautiful laid back island with no roads or cars. Surfing and `chilling' the order of the days.
