“Paraty - beautiful but watch out for rip offs”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just returned from Paraty - it was a business trip but saw most of the place and it is beautiful, safe and charming. Watch out for the restauranteurs though as they will rip you off as soon as look at you, inflated prices (probably because of the world cup) and lots of hidden charges. In many places you will not pay what it says on the menu, which is a shame as it tainted what was a nice stay. You will pay up to 50% more than locals if you don't have your wits about you.

“Picturesque”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Perfect for stand up paddle boarding. Also if you want to hire a boat for the day to see some of the remote beaches head out early to be sure to get a good price

“beautiful peaceful place”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

As far as bays go, this was up there as being one of the most beautiful we have seen. Schooner boats bobbing on the water, chilled out Captains waiting for a fare. The boat tour around the bay is a must. You visit islands and beaches, snorkel and relax. the food offered on the boat didn't look the best so we didn't partake thankfully.

“beautiful place - so picturesque - lots to do”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

We travelled from the Igassu Falls - short plane flight to Sao Paulo, then pick-up by Paraty Tours and minibus to Paraty. All easy to organise online and to do in practice.
Paraty is an extremely beautiful place - the town, jungle, beaches and water. Excellent restaurants, lots to do - or just to sit and watch. Well worth a visit.
We stayed three nights. We pottered around town a lot (of course); hired bikes and went along the coast up to the Fort and to some nearby beaches (well worth doing); hired a boat for 1/2 day and had a lovely trip to some deserted beaches (palm trees, jungle, white sand, warm water), during which we saw monkeys on an island, and had some (very poor) snorkelling.
Highly recommended
