Serra Verde Express & Ilha do Mel (Honey Island) 4 days/3 nights Brazil Curitiba

Ilha do Mel (Honey Island) is located approximately 115 km from Curitiba and is the most beautiful place the coast of Parana has to offer. Ilha do Mel is ideal for nature lovers and hikers. Since 90% of the island is nature preserved, it is a great place to get in touch with nature and go on hikes. The island is free of cars which mean you have to go by foot or boat to get around. There are shuttle boats that leave Ponta do Sul every hour (30 minutes crossing time) or from Parangua 2-3 times a day (about 90 minutes crossing time). The marinas are located on the beaches Brasilia and Encantadas where also the majority of the restaurants and pousadas are located.
