We wanted to do a hike when we were staying in Paraty. We did not want a big organised tour, so we researched ourselves a bit. This is how I would recommend to do the Pao Acucar hike, which gives you an INCREDIBLE view of...More

We went on a boat and stopped in two different areas where we went swimming, diving and paddleboarding along the rocks. Gorgeous place with clear, blue-greenish waters.

If you visit Brazil, be sure to visit this place. It is Brazil's only fjord. The Saco do Mamangua is peppered with secluded beaches and is surrounded by the South Atlantic Rainforest (Mata Atlantica). It is so so beautiful! We saw so much while canoeing...More
