My husband and I are going to Rio de Janeiro for a week in late November. My initial thought was to go to Buzios immediately from the airport for three nights and then spend the last four nights in Santa Teresa but now I am thinking Paraty might be a better option for us (we are in our 50's). I am confused though about why it takes four hours to get to Paraty when according to a Google search it really isn't that much further than Buzios, which apparently is about a two hour drive. So my new plan is to spend two nights in Leblon or Ipanema, three nights in Paraty and the last two nights in Santa Teresa. Does this make sense?
