The rafts are registered trademarks here in Porto de Galinhas mixing blue sky and sea conditions. colorful rafts depart from the beach village and lead to huge natural pools formed at low tide, which are 200 meters from the coast and five minutes away. The diving is more interesting to take snorkel and mask for you to impress among the colorful fish. Usually rafts now offer the kit, including food to attract animals.
