What customers say

Whenever I arrive at the Maraú Peninsula the feeling is the same: I am in paradise! Immediately I want to take off my shoes, put on a very comfortable outfit and throw myself in the wild. Our children spend hours diving in the calm waters of Taipú de Fora. I love to see them connected to the sea feeling free and happy!
