Framed by the lush slopes of the Costa Verde, this is a colonial town with a UNESCO-endorsed historic centre. Cars have been banned in the centre, making it a delight to walk around and admire the modernist architecture. Head to the crystal waters and the 65 islands that surround the town.
Accommodation in Paraty
Set in a quiet corner of the serene historic center of Paraty, this small hotel edges onto the pier and is truly a picture postcard. Overlooking it are the bay, the mountains and the dome of the evocative St Rita’s church. The four poster beds enjoy quality Egyptian linens.
