    We live on the quiet paradise Island of Itamaraca, North East Brazil.

    We are a small family from Belgium-Madagascar that have travelled in each one of the 193 countries of the world, volunteering in more than 500 schools for 10 years. Now we found our paradise here in Itamaraca. It is our turn to welcome volunteers and exchange with them.

    What else ...

    Itamaraca is a tropical island in NE Brazil, an hour’s drive from Recife International Airport, with a long road bridge connecting it to the mainland.

    Most of the island comprises protected natural rain forests (mata atlantica) with a few trails, but on the ocean side there are miles of long white sandy beaches.

    All kind of beach and watersport activities are available on the island. It is also a kitesurfing prime spot. But it is not crowded and mostly peaceful and quiet (except for carnaval and local/regional/national holidays).

    Itamaraca has a very interesting history with dutch and portuguese settlements, and hosts one of the oldest churches of Brasil (second oldest).

    As you would see, Itamaraca is a very easy going and peaceful place that most people fall in love with. However, don't expect nightclubs there, but it is still possible to have fun or have a drink out.
