Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: GO TO THE WATERFALLS!!! DON'T MISS OUT!!

Liked: Both days we stayed in Paraty were good days. The first day we took a BR$3 bus trip to Trindade beaches which were very nice although we heard they were now a bit touristy we still found them secluded enough. The second day we went to nearby waterfalls which I would highly recommend, lots of fun to be had there sliding down waterfalls and jumping off ledges into pools of water.

Disliked: Didn't stay long enough to dislike anything much apart from the stray dogs but I suppose this is a feature of poorer areas of Brazil

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Events / festivals Relaxation / spa Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: If you are going to Ilha Grande or have come from there don't bother doing a boat trip as you won't see anything different that you haven't seen on the island. Going up to the waterfalls gives you a different look at Brasil and the countryside away from the coast. Be careful of the cobbles in the centre, lethal if you have too many caipirinhas!

Liked: Paraty was our 3rd stop on our tour of Brasil, we had previously been in Rio and on Ilha Grande so it was a nice change to come to a small town like Paraty. There were many restaurants to choose from which was great as we like to try different kinds of food. Trip wise we went to the waterfalls which were very beautiful and not over run with tourists. The locals were really friendly which added to the experience.

Disliked: Nothing negative to be said, we loved our visit.
