Activities & Excursions - Maceio, Brazil  


Special Activities

Excursions,Cultural & Social Activities Excursions are on the weekends, once every two weeks, in and around the cities of Maceio and Sao Paulo. These excursions are organized and led by subject-matter experts or the local staff and include both cultural and environmental attractions.

Other Activities include:
  •   Café Regional: Every first week of the month, students, teachers and friends get together in school to have a typical evening meal and (some!) take the opportunity to participate in kareoke.
  •   Ritmos Nordestinos: See a show of Northeastern Brazilian rhythms and dances in a historic setting.
  •   Futebol: Watch a Brazilian Major Soccer League match by night.
  •   Capoeira: Visit a Capoeira school to learn about this Brazilian martial art.
  •   Passeio das 9 ilhas: Boat ride along Lagoa Mundau, with stops to visit some of its islands.
  •   União dos Palmares: Visit to Quilombo dos Palmares, one of the biggest colonies of runaway slaves.
  •   Piscina Natural: Take a trip in a small sail boat to Pajuçara's tidal pools where one can do snorkeling and hand-feed small fishes.
