Paraty, Ilha Grande and the Costa Verde

captivating scenery, quaint historic towns, national parks and unspoiled islands

Running from Rio de Janeiro to San Paolo, the Costa Verde is an idyllic stretch of coast encompassing jungle-clad mountains, waterfalls, islands and a dazzling emerald sea. Nestled amongst it all is the charming colonial town Paraty, and offshore the dreamy Ilha Grande.

The Costa Verde has it all: captivating scenery, quaint historic towns, national parks and unspoiled islands – not to mention it’s all just a short distance from Rio.

Located along this coast is the historic town of Paraty, a colonial gem and World Heritage Site. Walking around the town’s car-free cobbled streets gives you the impression of a place untouched by time, with its exquisite historic center, graceful old buildings and tree-lined avenues.

From Paraty you can take a small boat out to untouched tropical islands where you can while away the time swimming in clear waters and soaking up the Brazilian sunshine on stunning beaches. For those who like to actively explore, you will find plenty to discover inland with its tropical rainforest and glittering waterfalls.

A small island off the Costa Verde, Ilha Grande is picture-perfect with flawless sandy beaches hailed to be amongst the best in Brazil. The Lopes Mendes beach is particularly famous, renowned for its super fine white sand and shallow waters ideal for surfing. The island’s rainforest interior is threaded with hiking trails where you might spot howler monkeys, hummingbirds and more.
