Discover

Your Tropical Paradise

Paraty

Nestled between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo on Brazil's Costa Verde, Paraty is a quaint town framed by mountains. The cobbled streets of its Portuguese colonial center showcase 17th- and 18th-century buildings, remnants of its time as a pivotal port during the Brazilian Gold Rush. The waterfront Capela de Santa Rita, a whitewashed church from 1722, is a notable architectural landmark.

Once a vital port during the Portuguese empire, Paraty marked the endpoint of the Estrada Real, a trail carrying gold, diamonds, and coffee from Minas Gerais to Europe. The town slipped off the radar when the route shifted to Rio for efficiency, accessible only by boat and surrounded by tropical forest. It reemerged in the 1970s with the construction of the Rio-Santos road, drawing visitors with its colonial charm and natural beauty. Today, the 63 virgin islands along the coast to Angra are sought after by Brazilian captains of industry.

Ecological Reserve of Joatinga: A Tranquil Haven

Discover the practically deserted coast of the Ecological Reserve of Joatinga, where great fishing, beach bars, serene ponds, and forested shores await. Immerse yourself in the traditional lifestyle of local fishermen on white beaches. Some sailors choose to stay for weeks, captivated by the tranquility and natural beauty.

Brazilian weather: a Tropical Paradise

In most of the season from October to April, Paraty enjoys hot weather, averaging between 22 to 34 degrees Celsius. The water temperature, influenced by currents from Patagonia, hovers around 20 degrees Celsius. With an average monthly rainfall of 84mm, Paraty provides an idyllic tropical escape for those seeking warmth and relaxation.
