What you'll do

You’re going to know a region of Rio de Janeiro called Pantanal Carioca due to all its diversity of fauna and flora. Our meeting point is at the subway station Jardim Oceânico (Exit A). From there, we’re going to take a boat and know the West Zone island complex, Primeira Island, Gigoia Island among others. You’ll see some animals like: Capybaras, exotic birds and, if you are lucky, alligators. After the boat trip, we’ll go for a walk on Gigóia Island, enjoy some street arts, such as graffiti. You can also purchase products made by local people. You’ll know some curiosities related to the Islands, our culture and the Barra da Tijuca neighborhood. Let’s go?

Your hosts

My name is Gabriela Palma and I have a travel agency in Rio de Janeiro. I’m also a tour guide and a community leader of an experience hosting platform in Rio. I have an experience on this platform since 2017 (Meet Little Africa) and now, together with my team, we want to show you different places of the city.
