“A quick view into past times”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

A lovely,although touristic little city. Make sure you wear good shoes, the roads are cobbled but with big stones and walking can prove tricky. There are many good restaurants.

“Travelling in time”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

As I have family living in Brazil I was treated to a visit to Paraty , After the long drive, arriving to the historical city was as if we had traveled in time . The stone paved streets , made by slaves 500 hundred years ago , so i was told , the beautiful architecture , the bookshops , bars and restaurants , the friendly people made us change our minds and stay for a couple of days longer . Very wise decision , indeed , as with more time we were able to take a boat and see the incredible beaches , fauna and flora of this dreamy city .

“just a walk around”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Start here and wander the cute streets, get lost and keep on wandering. You will see fun things around every corner I thought the shops had so good values except lots of stuff from Indonesia. The location and city are worth the trip to see an authentic Brazilian colonial town that takes you back to 1500 Brazil. Fab community.

“not only roumous...”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I heard about Paraty before visiting and I thought is another over advertised place.
You actually have to see this place to feel it. A colonial town full of live and character! A must see if you travel to Brazil!

“very nice and interesting city”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

It is an old and nice city, it's streets permit the entrance of the sea each day so they are clean.
I bought very nice hand work souvenirs.
