Paraty

— 1 night
Gazing out over a bay of tiny tropical islands, with rainforests climbing mountains in the background, it's easy to see why tourism in Paraty gets more popular by the year.
Kick off your visit on the 12th (Sat): kick back and relax at Meio Beach and then stroll through Praia do Cachadaco. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stop by Atelier de Ceramica Lulu Silva Telles, wander the streets of Centro Historico, then choose your vessel at MB Paraty, then admire the striking features of Church of Our Lady of Remedies, and finally enjoy the sand and surf at Sono Beach.

Ilha Grande

— 3 nights
A tumultuous and unsavory history has kept Ilha Grande relatively undeveloped and free of the trappings of the modern world.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Mon): kick back and relax at Aventureiro and then kick back and relax at Lagoa Azul. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Praia Preta, then kick back and relax at Abraaozinho Beach, and then delve into the distant past at Aqueduto.

To see maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Ilha Grande trip maker app.
