GREAT HOUSE, LOCATION, AND OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
4 GRINGOS FROM AMERICA VISITED THIS HOUSE FOR NEW YEARS. EDGAR AND NEIVA WERE GREAT. EDGAR (OWNER) ACTUALLY PICKED US UP FROM THE AIRPORT AND DROVE US TO THE HOUSE. WE SENT MONEY VIA WESTERN UNION PRIOR TO THE TRIP AND PAID THE BALANCE IN CASH. IT WAS A LITTLE SCARY SINCE IT'S NOT HOW WE NORMALLY CONDUCT BUSINESS, BUT IT WASN'T A PROBLEM. EXCHANGE YOUR MONEY BEFORE YOU GO. THE ONLY BANK WON'T EXCHANGE CURRENCY AND YOU'LL GET A BETTER RATE BACK HOME THAN AT THE AIRPORTS. MOST PLACES TAKE CREDIT CARDS, BUT CASH IS NEEDED FOR TAXIS AND DRINKS ON THE BEACH. THERE IS A BIG SUPERMARKET A FEW MILES AWAY THAT HAS EVERYTHING. WE BOUGHT ASSORTED MEATS THERE AND HAD A BBQ USING THE INDOOR GRILL. BEST RESTAURANTS WE FOUND ARE SECOND FLOOR AND SIMPLE IN JURERE INTERNACIONAL. HOUSE IS NICE, GREAT LOCATION, 5 MINUTE WALK TO THE BEACH. GRAB A DRINK ON THE BEACH MADE WITH FRESH SQUEEZED FRUIT. THE LOCALS AREN'T USED TO BEING TIPPED, SO THROWING THEM A COUPLE OF BUCKS REALLY GETS A GOOD REACTION AND IS APPRECIATED. PRACTICE YOUR PORTUGUESE. WE LOST OUR TRANSLATOR PRIOR TO THE TRIP AND HAD TO SURVIVE ON LIMITED SPANISH. ENGLISH IS NOT VERY COMMON ON THE ISLAND. IF YOU ARE A GROUP OF GUYS, GIRLS HERE ARE NOT WHAT YOU ARE EXPECTING. THEY ARE DEFINITELY ATTRACTIVE, BUT ARE HARD TO TALK TO, EVEN FOR VISITING BRAZILIANS FROM RIO AND SAO PAOLO. EXPECT TO PUT IN SOME WORK. YOU HAVE TO BE EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE.
