Bathing in brackish water beaches, in an unusual mixture of the Atlantic Ocean and the Amazon River; riding buffaloes, a typical mount in the area; riding the marajoaran horse amid the guara birds as they fish, the buffaloes as they refresh themselves and the whole flora and fauna that share harmoniously the immense floating gardens in which the pastures have become after the rains; indulging yourself in one of the richest and healthiest Brazilian culinary art; getting acquainted with the production of artifacts — having in the ceramics an archaeological legacy recognized internationally; all this comprises the experiences of our Expedition in this land full of magic.
Marajo – a real ecological shrine worthy of being visited and preserved.
