Gazing out over a bay of tiny tropical islands, with rainforests climbing mountains in the background, it's easy to see why tourism in Paraty gets more popular by the year.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Sun): take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Aecio Sarti, brush up on your military savvy at Museu Forte Defensor Perpetuo de Paraty, then take in the exciting artwork at Casa da Cultura de Paraty, then don't miss a visit to Centro Historico, and finally stop by Atelier de Ceramica Lulu Silva Telles. On your second day here, kick back and relax at Meio Beach and then enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Cachadaco.

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
