As your tour guides, our goal is customer service! We have a lot of repeat
customers that we have surfed with and taught to surf through the years. I feel
blessed to be able to share this opportunity with them and invite you to come
visit us out at the Brazil Surfari in Ferrugem.
You will start your day with a continental style breakfast that is offered
every morning from 8AM-10AM. After breakfast you can walk to the beach and
surf, take a surf lesson, or just hang out, and enjoy all there is to see.
Your schedule will be flexible and you will have plenty of opportunities
to explore the area. At night, the town comes alive with nightclubs, bars,
concerts, parties, shopping, and restaurants. The people that visit here
are usually on vacation from Brazil or Argentina. The locals are friendly
and they love Americans.

to stay longer and we will give you a 10% discount if you do.
