SUNDAY THOUGHTS FROM RAFA - MY MIND IS GOING TO PARATY - THAT IS ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT A WONDERFUL PLACE TO GO WHEN YOU ARE IN RIO


Dear Reader, I am a big fun of open door places and places where Nature is with you wherever you go. And this so sunny winter in Rio I woke up very inspired! Next time you come to Rio, I mean, the third expedition to Rio, let's explore Paraty Area...so many wonderful places there, from the islands to the mountains and also, Paraty is one of the most important colonial tours in Brazil...

If by chance to you a week to burn in Rio or even when you come for 4 days...you really should think about at least spend one night in PARATY.


Well, right now I am hungry...so all I can think when Paraty is in my mind...FOOD...Cuisine is simply magical...lots to choose and our stomachs will never feel abandoned...




Some of the best restaurants in Brazil you can find in Paraty...chefs from everywhere in the country had selected Paraty to give us their best talent, some very old restaurants can be experienced there...in every corner you can just get in, have a seat and a wonderful conversation with friends always followed by some delicious typical snack to please THE VERY DEEP SOUL OF YOUR EATING DESIRES....




Just hiring a fishing boat we can find so many islands and so many villages that we can just reach by boat...cool chance to meet simple and fascinating people, wonderful chance to see remote and absolutely breathtaking places in Brazil and we always realize that Rio is not only Copacabana and we find very hard to believe that everything here is a reason to get more than 300.000 people to protest against the high price of our transportation, hahahahaha :)))))







It is a real "DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY" place....

Feel minutes a way from the historical center we can go deep in the forest and find amazing waterfalls with crystal clear water...

Paraty is a place to spend at least one night, but I would spend easily a week with so many things to do.

It always will be a place to take my guests, to meet friends and to meet my own private peace...





I know you must be asking...how long it gets to reach Paraty...well it is a long way driving in the beautiful Green Coast, four hours but it is so pleasant, you see so many different landscapes and we can always stop in some interesting places in the way, like the fishing village Tarituba or in some mountain villages like Taquari or in the falls of Cunha.

SIMPLY LOVE PARATY...IT IS REALLY A MUST GO PLACE!!!!
