Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Beach / sunbathing Sports, adventure or outdoor activities

Customer Travel Tip: Do the schooner trip around to the different islands and see the waterfalls. Just seeing how the locals surf the sliding rock or swing into the river is amazing

Liked: Lots of activities, beautiful scenery and a lovely little place to explore. The historic centre has a lot of character and the surround areas of Paraty are also worth exploring. Wish I had stayed longer...

Disliked: Nothing to dislike except...beware of the cobbled streets...watch your step :)

30 Apr 2012

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: take a lot of money and check the weather report. DO NOT ARRIVE AT NIGHT! PICK THE RIGHT HOSTEL!!!!!!!

Liked: It probs would have been beautiful if it weren´t for all the rubbish on the beaches and on the streets. Oh and it rained a lot when we were there - cant help that. If you have money I bet this place would be great, if you can rent a boat and spend $100 on dinner then this is the place for you.

Disliked: It was not what we thought it would be. It was a little crowded, filthy dirty, and unsafe at night. The beaches are hardly worth visiting - better off going to Isla Grande maybe. It is also overpriced so if you are a budget traveller skip this place as unless your keen on cleaning the place up there is not much walking to be done.

Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: didn,t do any of the activities but there seem to be plenty of day trips on offer, otherwise one or two nights is sufficient to explore the town and then move on to a beach resort where the beaches are nicer and closer at hand

Liked: really beautiful place, cobbled streets and beautiful buildings could spend hours wondering round and going to some of the many lovely cafes and restaurants

Disliked: quite pricey in the centre
