If you love sight seeing and doing cultural exploration, this is the place for you. I visited in august and it was such a great time to visit. It is Brazil's winter, therefore it was not so hot but also not so cold. My friends and I had the opportunity to go to the Paraty festival and man I had... More

A place for walk, safe, tranquil, a place for pictures taker mainly when the tide get through the streets creating a mirror effect with the constructions. Also the bay tour with one of the boat for rent in the harbour is a must to do.

Parati's downtown is a rare jewell. Take your time and you'll find the way to be alone in a timeless place. If you dare, you might feel like a colonial settler, a slave, a Pirate... Every one of them and as much as your imagination reaches, without loosing the opportunity to delight your senses and soul with really good food... More

It's a amazing city to visit in anytime of the year. The people are hospitable and polite. There are many places and activities to do. The city is totally safe. I reckon it, but pay attention with The Heather because rain a lot of, but same that would be rain the travel can be specially. The mine was it.

Very well preserved old town with several streets plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and all kind of businesses. Some buildings may require some extra attention as they are agreeing but overall is simply wonderful. Evenings there are busy, the streets are full of people during the season. Wear the right shoes.

We stayed here for 6 nights after being in rio for the carnival. It's a great place to relax as there isn't much happening. The best way to spend the days are at the beach (the nicer ones are reachable by boat) or doing tours. Dining here is really good. Probably even better than rio. Only a little expensive. A... More

The center is in good shape... the buildings (or most of them) have been repainted and well maintained. You will love getting lost in the streets and just enjoy the walk, discover cute-looking streets, flowers and plants, some lazy cats... and some amazing houses and churches.
