Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge
Our first stop after a short hike is Pedra Bonita Mountain, which means “beautiful stone”. Part of the Tijuca National Park with its summit at 693m above sea level it offers a 360º view of forests, beaches and the city. Our second stop is Prainha and Grumari. These isolated beaches are located in the west part of the city and are part of two different conservation unities. After an optional lunch at a nearby seafood restaurant we visit the Casa do Pontal Museum.
Set on a pleasant house in a beautiful corner of the city the museum presents one of the most complete visions of the Brazilian popular art. Its collection is the result of a 40 year research by the designer Jacques Van de Beuque and displays a large variety of works by more than 200 artists from many different parts of the country, creating an authentic anthropological window to the roots of the Brazilian culture.
