The charming Paraty is one of the oldest colonial cities in Brazil.
Also known as the "Brazilian Venezia", it is at an average height of 5 meters above sea level and its streets are frequently flooded, what its neighbors say, is an excellent way to "wash" the city,
The historic center is considered National Historical Heritage due to the importance of its architectural ensemble. Throughout its cobbled streets, where the circulation of automobiles is prohibited, churches and colonial mansions are built mostly painted white and very well maintained, so when taking a quiet walk through the center you can not avoid having the feeling that it has receded several centuries in time.
Bathed by two important rivers and their corresponding secondary tributaries, in the natural environment of Paraty is a great variety of waterfalls that form beautiful natural pools where you can enjoy a refreshing fresh water bath.
In the center of the city there are no good beaches but the bay of Paraty has around 50, many of which can only be reached by sea by boat. Precisely that inaccessibility has made these beaches are the most beautiful because they are in an almost wild state, surrounded by thick vegetation, perfect for sailing.
The sailboats are located in the Marina Do Farol, which offers a "taxi-boat" service from the marina to the city (5 minutes). This marina offers its guests all kinds of amenities (showers, restaurant, wifi, etc. )
You can not miss the local cachaça called Gabriela, the Brazilian brandy with a touch of clove, cinnamon and ginger.
