Paraty's cobblestone streets and colonial architecture give the town a charming romantic aura, as if time has stood still since 18th-century, with barely a car in sight. Once a port for exporting gold, this quaint coastal town is now a destination for history buffs, art lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. Paraty holidays are the perfect way to unwind, relax and rejuvenate. To get a true sense of the sleepy town, wander through the charming historic centre at night. Marvel at the town's colonial-era architecture, old churches and art galleries, and notice the brightly painted doorframes and colourful houses that dot its streets.
Stop for dinner at a local restaurant to enjoy the region's specialties: moqueca (Brazilian fish stew) or bobo de pato (duck stew). Nestled on Brazil’s southern coast, Paraty holidays are perfect for those looking to escape from the hustle and bustle - and what better way than sailing around Ilha de Búzios and its dreamy bays? The warm waters of the coast and its many hidden beaches are a fantastic setting for exploring. The dazzlingly blue water teems with exotic fish, making it perfect for snorkelling and swimming.
