    You could almost feel the humidity in that intro pic and it feels so good....I love humidity! I miss coconut trees - we don't have any in Arizona, and we have a lot in Philippines...Norman :)

    Interesting sounding place with lovely beaches. I was wondering: what is 'acarajes'? Have never heard this before.

    The Cocoa Coast -- what a great name! I believe my daughter has been to the Atlantic Rainforest Reserve and even worked there for a while. I'll have to ask her.

    What an idyllic looking spot this would be to escape to for a while!! Beautiful photos and I can well imagine that acaraje, imported by West African slaves, would be delicious!

    Mira, looks nice a great place but is it built up like a resort or is it a remote village? I like to go off the beaten path but not too extremes. Thanks
