My husband and I had big, big plans for Fernando de Noronha — dare I say grandiose — since it was after all our ultimate dream destination. However, before you get too excited about seeing pictures of us from different spots on the archipelago or about reading insider suggestions on things to do and see, let me confess: we did nothing on our agenda. Not.one.thing.
We found it almost impossible to leave our sanctuary Pousada Maravilha. What we did enjoy thoroughly though was the hotel’s infinity pool and quite possibly too many caipirinhas.
Would you have been able to leave these breathtaking surroundings? I have no doubt that the rest of Fernando de Noronha would have dazzled us, maybe even changed our lives, but we were cast under our hotel’s magical spell.
My conclusion: sometimes you want to expand your horizons, while other times the most beautiful adventures are best experienced right where you are. Oh, and here is a secret that I discovered, if you do not do everything you had set out to do in the first place, well, then you have a great reason to return.
