"The Scuba Capital" Arraial do Cabo by DSwede

Arraial do Cabo Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 64 photos

While I did come up to Arraial do Cabo from Rio just like 99% of all other tourists for the scuba diving, I must say I was not overly impressed. The town does have some large, expansive beaches, but outside of that, not so much.

For more thoughts on my overall time here, feel free to visit my Brazil page.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easily accessible from Rio
  • Cons:Little infomration for the non-Portuguese speaking visitor
  • In a nutshell:It wants to be a sleepy fishing village but gets inflated with those escaping Rio
