Cool Tips:

2. Don't miss making a boat trip for the nearby islands.   

3. "I spent many carnivals in Piúma. Now that I am married, it's all over!!! - For the carnival, is better to go by car, however it can also be made by bus. - There are plenty beautiful girls from Minas Gerais on the holidays - eat fish at the islands, it is very good - in the carnival, have lunch in UBU (for who likes fish), after Anchieta". trip from Ricardo Firpo  

4. "I have already spent many Carnivals in Piúma. 5 consecutive years. And some New Year too! But as the guy above, I also got married and it's an end for the parties : -) The tip on Piúma is the following: - To wake up, and to go to Iriri. There it is full of beautiful people. To eat peroá on lunch, and to go to Castelhanos beach where there are always music floats. At night, take a shower and go back for the music floats. - I didn't find many advantage on staying at lodging. Stay at a Camping. The Campings have good infrastructure. - If you don't want to camp, go there in the beginning of January and rent a house, that costs about R$800 on the main street. -  To go by bus, the better is to buy the tickets in December. But you can also go to Cachoeiro and, from there, take the urban bus to Piuma. It's good to go by car, the highway is calm, with many gas stations to stop. - You can spend the carnival there with R$300. The beer is cheap, and a meal costs R$3,50." tip from Abilio
