3 nights on Ilha do Mel? Too long?

We are traveling in early September. We have an "extra" day and are trying to decide where to spend it! Right now we are in Rio for 3 nights, Paraty for 2 night, Curitiba for 1 night, Morretes for 2 nights, and then on to to Ilha do Mel for 3 nights. Is 3 nights (2.5 days) too long on Ilha do Mel? Should we spend it in Paraty or Morretes instead? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Are you going straight to the island or are you taking the train tour to MOrretes and then to the island? If so, you will arrive on Ilha do Mel on the late afternoon.

3 days are not too long if you like peace, hiking and relaxing days. Ilha do Mel is quite relaxing and quiet if not in the Summer months.

I love it... and I hope you do it so...

Take a look at www.ilhadomel-travel.com.br

There is plenty of information about where to stay, etc. Also some options for Morretes if you plan to stay there.

Take care and have fun!!!!

All depend on your interests, but I will go straight to the point. I do think one night in Curitiba is not enough, there's lot to do and see here. Give a look at Curitiba official website and make your own mind: http://www.viaje.curitiba.pr.gov.br/ (go to 'pontos turísticos'). On the other hand, I think one night in Morretes is enough. For Ilha do Mel, well, it is little more complcated, maybe you want to stay there forever...3 nights will be OK.
