Today Rose and I headed up the coast on the bus to Ubatuba, about an hour away from Caragua.

Our previous plan was to hire a car and cruise up the coast, stopping off at different places on the way to Rio. As it turned out, hiring a car in Brazil is a bit of a hassle. The roads are sh*t, the drivers are mental, and there is a pretty useless insurance policy that comes with all hire cars, meaning that you are liable for the first £500-750 of any accident that you incur, whether it is your fault or not. Anyway I digress! We ended up taking the bus EVERYWHERE!

We had a nice day checking out Ubatuba, it was scotching hot day, so we didn’t over exert ourselves and just took in a few sights and rounded it off with a nice meal on the beach front in the evening!
