found a good restaurant close to the ship tender but other than that, a significant disappointment. Travel pictures make it look a lot better than it is. Poor condition. Streets were terribly flooded which did not help. Sorry, but I just don't get it....

Boating, swimming, eating - little beach shack restaurants, fish so plentiful that you feel them rubbing your feet when you swim, lovely water, endless islands. You get the gist.

Paraty is almost the best experience in the south of Brasil, so close to Rio de Janeiro ( center), you will find a combination of culture, nature, jungle, beachs and energy people! Is a quiet town for walk and spend time drinking a beer and...More
