Ilha de Marajó Things to Do: 6 reviews and 24 photos
Staying or visiting one of the fazendas (farms, ranches) is certainly the best way to get to know the life on the island. As I really fell in love with Praia do Pesqueiro, I stayed there overnight so I only made a daily excursion. Fazenda Sao Jeronimo was in the area and seemed the obvious choice.
The property has 400 ha with rainforest, mangroves, waterways, fields, lagoon, island and private beach. Toucans, parekeets, herons, ibis, owls, hawks, guariba monkeys and turtles are some of the residents.
The excursion consisted of boat navigation in the waterways, walking accross the mangroves, riding in buffalo cart throught the forest and at the end we made a stop on the beach. Having agua de coco (coconut water) and some local fruit from the tree, observing various bird spices and taking a bath on the beach where there was nobody... Sounds too good to be truth :)
When we returned to fazenda we had delicious lunch made by dona Jeronima. Everything she prepared was fresh and home grown. Some of the ingredients: early in the morning, fishes and shrimps still alive are caught in the river, crabs in the mangrooves, acai in the palm trees and the milk comes from cows and female buffalo.
The easiest way to get to fezenda Sao Jeronimo is by mototaxi from Soure (or in my case from Praia do Pesqueiro).
Directions: between Soure and Praia do Pesqueiro
