Why Travel with us?

Here are some of the things we know are important:

  • Security; We drop you off and pick you up door to door using our own private, modern, safe and reliable vans (with windows that open AND air-con). And we work with the very best of Brazilian drivers. Your driver and tour leader know each destination inside out, and can tell you exactly what you need to know about each place. Relax and enjoy, you're in safe hands.
  • Price; We know how expensive Brazil can be for backpackers. We'll show you where you'll get the very best value for your money. We often get group discounts and free entries, and you'll be shown all our favourite bars and restaurants - that won't break the bank - including the best 'prato feitos' in town! (cheap, tasty and filling Brazilian meals)
  • Getting the most out of your time; If you don't have much time to spend in Brazil, we're here to show you how to make the most of your time! We save you the time you would normally take researching where is best to stay, eat, drink, and party as well as the best activities on offer in each place. You'll still have the freedom to make your own decisions, but we're here to help make those decisions so much easier, and so much quicker!
  • Independence when it suits; Travelling by yourself is nice sometimes, but isn't it also nice to have the choice. If you feel like escaping and having a bit of 'me time' in each place, you can! that's the beauty of Cruz the Coast. We don't force you to all stay in the same accommodation and eat in the same places. We give you options in each place. We give you our recommendations which come from years of experience. And you can take it or leave it, no worries. We won't be offended if you go off and do your own thing. We respect your independence and individuality. But isn't it good to know that if you're ever feeling a bit lazy, or can't be bothered making a decision, you don't have to. We can do it for you!
  • Fun at your fingertips every night; Most people don't want to go out every night of the week. But then again, some do! We give you this option every night. And don't worry; you won't be stuck with the same bunch of people all the time! we'll be introducing you to our local friends in each place. Instant friends, both on-tour and off!
  • Creature comforts; All the hostels and guest-houses that we stay in have private bathrooms with decent showers, cold beer, chill-out area, laundry service, wifi/internet, breakfast included and the majority also have communal kitchens, BBQs and swimming pools! We understand the needs of the independent traveller!
  • Getting off the beaten track; If you were to make this trip yourself between Rio and Salvador you'd probably only stop in 1, 2 or 3 places maximum. Why! Simply because most of this coastline is still 'un-known'. People don't know where is best to stop, and how to go about it. And let's face it; unless you speak fluent Portuguese (and even then!), it's not easy to figure out how to get to an estancia just outside Santa Teresa, or the little out-of-the-way town of Itaunas, without wasting a lot of valuable time and money. Most travellers would probably take the bus direct from Rio to Porto Seguro, thereby missing out on all the coolest of places in-between. And we're not just talking about our night stops. We're also talking about all the little stops on our driving days, such as an incredible panoramic photo stop, a side-trip to a hidden waterfall, a delicious home cooked meal on the side of the road, a picnic with a view! The more we do these tours, the more we talk to the locals and discover more and more jewels to share!. The jewels are never-ending, and always-appearing
