Recommended Stay 3 days/2 nights.
Just a few hours from Rio, set amid jutting peninsulas and secluded beaches, lies a historical town in the center of an island studded bay. Paraty is known not only for its turquoise waters, but for its colonial center which remains remarkably well preserved. With centuries old architecture, pedestrian only streets, great restaurants and incredible accommodation, this town never disappoints. Paraty feels as if you stepped into a post card with elegant white buildings adorned with brightly colored window trim and large wooden doors. Spend your days wandering the shops in the old town or head out for a boat ride to play on the dozen of pristine jungly beaches. Some of our personal favorite things to do are dine at Literaria’s Farm-to-table restaurant, visit the hippy style Trinidad beach town and have afternoon cocktails at the BalacoBacco beach bar.
