Package Itinerary

The historical city of Paraty with its cobble stone streets and churches in a beautiful surrounding countryside was founded in 1667 and grew big because of its many plantations of sugarcane. It even got the fame of producing the best cachaca (local strong drink). In the 18th century, during the golden fever Paraty was used as an important port for the transportation of gold and precious stones from the state of Minas Gerais to Portugal. However, constant attacks of pirates obliged the port to be moved elsewhere, bringing Parati in an economically isolated position. Only in the 70 when the railroad Rio-Santos was constructed did Paraty receive visitors again: this time they were tourists that come to admire the historical city in a tropical paradise.
Pick up in the morning from your hotel in Rio and transfer to Parati (3 hours). Historical tour trough Parati and the possibility of tour on Caminho de ouro (Golden road), the way over which gold was transported from Minas Gerais. In the afternoon we head back for Rio de Janeiro. We strongly advise you to spend at least 2 days in Parati, giving you a chance to do a boattour around its wonderful tropical beaches.
