I would love to plan a trip Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, Brazil
do they have a boat to rent.. any advice on Hotels.. rates etc.
Flights come in from either Recife (REC) or Natal (NAT) daily.
There are plenty of boats available, either for scuba-diving or trips around the island. There are no large hotels, but rather small "pousadas", which are usually family run. They range from outright simple to luxurious. 'Pousada Ze Maria' is a famous and upclass lodge. You can only enter the island with lodging reservations, and there's an environmental-protection fee that becomes more expensive the longer you stay in Fernando de Noronha.
Since it's a complex tourist destination, it's better to check with a travel agent for detailed planning.
