21 Dec 2013

Customer Travel Tip: There's loads of great beaches but out best day was when we took bus 1040 from paraty bus station (early!) to the last stop. Then spent 1hr and half hiking through beautiful rainforest until we arrived at the beach (can't remember name, u can't miss it), beautiful secluded setting, don't eat at first cafe on the beach, the ones half way down are much cheaper. Had the best day. But save some energy and time for the trek and bus back to paraty.

Liked: Lovely town, great shops and restaurants, loads of amazing beaches nearby both quite and idyllic and busy. Beautiful setting, great or swimming or surfing at nearby beaches (not paraty town beach). Very laid back and relaxing atmosphere.

Disliked: Good and shopping all very expensive.

Customer Travel Tip: stay at least two days, take boat tour. also shopping facilities for tourists (magnets, t-shirts etc.) are even better than rio.

Liked: amazing historical town, lots of good shopping facilities with a satisfying price range. really good for relaxation with a breathtaking nature.

Disliked: it was a bit comfortable to get there because of the very bad road conditions, but if you can tolerate the frightening travel, scene is great both from rio and sao paulo.
