At a glance

The magnificent coastline is the perfect place for a convenient beach escape between the two cities of Sao Paulo and Rio. Rolling emerald hills, stunning bays and charming colonial villages populate this sultry coastline.

For a secluded and tranquil stay, we have included a stay in the small Brazilian fishing village of Picinguaba, where you can enjoy exploring the surrounding beaches on board the posada’s private schooner boat. Fall in love with the quaint colonial charm of Paraty, and then end with time exploring and relaxing in the scintillating city of Rio de Janeiro.

This trip is perfect for those with a short amount of time and are looking for a trip without internal flights.

Set on the verdant green coast of Brazil this small fishing village is a truly idyllic and beautiful spot where the locals (though very friendly) are concerned with fish and not tourists.

This makes for a fabulous look at the real Brazil where you get a genuine feel for the people and culture of this country.

This is a protected area, so development is almost non-existent, the wildlife is abundant and the beaches secluded and totally unspoilt, with rainforest covered hills providing a stunning backdrop.
