Paraty Mini Trip
As an easy stop from Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, Paraty should not be missed. This small town directly on the sea offers a charming old town and a local flair. If you are a fan of Caipirinha cocktails, a visit to the Cachaça distillery should be on your list. A sailing trip on the second day will round off your stay, showing you the many small islands just offshore Paraty. Come see all that Paraty has to offer!
After arriving from Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo, you'll check in to your hotel and will have this first day free. We recommend heading out and exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site with its old churches and town center. Stroll along the cobblestone streets and see the colorful, well-preserved buildings from the Portuguese colonial era. We would also recommend the cachaça distillery, where you can learn more about the production of the main ingredient of a Caipirinha, Brazil's most beloved cocktail. For a nice dinner, you can try a Feijoada, a stew of beans with beef and pork.
Pousada Marendaz* (Classic) / Pousada da Marquesa* (Comfort)
After a typical Brazilian breakfast with fresh juices, cakes and exotic fruits, you will be transferred to the port of Paraty. From there, you'll start your unforgettable day! A small sailing boat will take you along the coast of a few of the 60 islands in the region. Spend the day at the shore. Swim in the crystal clear waters, sunbathe on white beaches and discover the incomparable nature of the Brazilian coast. Live in the moment, but be sure to listen out for the ship's horn, signaling when to board and head back to Paraty. From there, the evening is yours to enjoy as you please.
