The small town of Paraty is situated south of Rio de Janeiro and is accessed by road on a scenic 4 hour journey. Situated on the Emerald Coast of Brazil, Paraty is surrounded by lush green vegetation and a sparkling blue ocean.

The town itself is a beautiful, well-preserved colonial town dating back to the 1500’s when the Portuguese ruled. Quiet cobbled streets are lined with pretty buildings with brightly-coloured doors and window-frames. The scenic harbour area has a great ambience with schooner boats and fishing boats bobbing on the water, and small cafes lining the street.

Paraty is both a photogenic town and also an extremely relaxing place to find oneself. While there, one can wander the streets, take a trip on a schooner boat to admire the coast, and take a trip to one of the nearby beaches.
