Feb 27, 2007 - Fernando De Noronha

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2007. FERNANDO DE NORONHA, BRAZIL. After a one hour flight from Recife (Varig Brasil, 771 Reals round trip ~$385), we have arrived on Fernando De Noronha, the main and only populated island in an archipelago off Brazil's northeast coast. The diving and beaches are supposed to be the best in Brazil, if not all of South America. There is also a huge pod of dolphins that live in the area. Our plan is to spend five days enjoying and exploring the islands before returning to Recife. * * * TUESDAY-SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 27-MARCH...

Mar 10, 2005 - Brasil - Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha - a paradise island about 400km off the coast of Natal. 17 square kilometres in size and full of wildlife, being environmentally protected. We had been told so much about this island and we had been getting excited about going. We were transported in a little propeller airplane and transfered to our Pousada (Floresta e Mar), arriving at about lunchtime. In the afternoon we had a little walk around and went to our contact on the island to book tours and diving. In the evening we ate at a creperie which did a fantastic...
