When we finally reached Paranagua, a harbour city in the state of Parana we had one boat trip left to our destination Ilha do Mel. A scenic route of an hour and a half in a charming and colorful wooden boat.
We were happy to find that the destination was worth all the travelling. A wonderful little island combining djungle, beaches and a nature reserve you were’nt aloud to visit. We walked along the beach to Fortaleza, an old fort completed in 1769.
We also almost missed the mini-boat back to our side of the island trying to save a dead fish.
