Brazil: Paraty, Ilha Grande and Costa Verde

Visit Us

Head southwest out of Rio along the exquisite winding coast road, with waves of steep mountains cloaked in dense mata Atlântica rainforest tumbling to tiny sandy bays. These harbour fishing ports and leisure resorts including the conserved colonial masterpiece at Paraty, seemingly paused in time centuries ago. The jade-green ocean is peppered with islands, one of the largest being unspoilt Ilha Grande, ringed by sugary beaches and with a choice of laid back pousadas and hiking trails. Swimming everywhere is a delight in a natural aquarium of tropical fish.
