The beaches at Guarapari in the state of Espírito Santo are by far the most popular in the state. Because of the large numbers of mineiros (residents of the neighboring state of Minas Gerais) in Guarapari, the town is jokingly called a mineiro colony. And indeed, if you walk around in Guarapari, you’ll meet many mineiros. The shopkeepers and restaurateurs offer many products from Minas to the tourists. To make the mineiros feel themselves at home. And where are tourists, there are also vendors. Also on the beach. They offer a wide array of merchandise: sunscreen, soda, beer, T-shirts, swimwear, snacks, souvenirs and even cookware, as seen on the pictures.
