Fernando de Noronha is an idyllic group of volcanic islands located off the north east coast of Brazil. The whole archipelago is a Marine National Park and its crystal waters are home to more than 200 species of fish. And with visibility of up to 50 metres and water temperatures of 25 degrees all year round, the area is a paradise for both divers and snorkelers alike.

The islands themselves are a stunning. Their rugged landscape allows for spectacular hikes and horse rides while numerous beautiful beaches await privileged sunbathers. Privileged, as less than 500 visitors per day are allowed into the National Park.

Trancosco is a small fishing town near Porto Seguro in the state of Bahia. The area has a laid back, casual feel, making you instantly feel relaxed. The central point of the town is the charming Quadrado (town square) which is bordered by traditional colourful houses, casual bars and rustic restaurants serving a delicious choice of Bahian dishes. The area is famous for its beaches with white sand and emerald seas. Most of the coast is protected by reefs which form natural pools at low tide - a great place to snorkel or just relax and soak up the surroundings. During summer months (Dec-Feb) the place gets quite lively with beach parties whereas the rest of the year a quieter more relaxed pace takes hold.
