This weekend I planned to visit Paraty. It is a small town situated at the southern tip of the state of Rio de Janeiro. The stunning natural wonders of the town are surely going to take you by surprise. Starting from natural wonders to colonial architect, you are going to find it all. You will find the region rich in various activities. Here are some of the things that you can include in your itineraries when you visit Paraty.
Visit the Historical Center
When you visit the historical center of Paraty, you will notice that it forms a significant part of the heritage and charm of the town. The architect of the building speaks of the Portuguese legacy. The brightly colored window and door frames appear so beautiful. You will find cobbled streets that connect them. Wander around Santa Rita church and also the houses that surround it.
Relax on the Beach
To relax and chill, I visited Barra do Corumbê. This is a small beach that offers an excellent view. It is the ideal spot if you want to spend some time with your family. The water is shallow and calm. Hence, it is the best place if you want to do some standup surf paddle. There are also some restaurants out here which offer delicious seafood.
Go for a Boat Trip
Taking a boat trip to check out the natural wonders is definitely the best thing that I tried out in Paraty. The tours start at 11 in the morning and take 4 hours to cover all the attractions. This way you can come across many scenic coves and beaches. There are snorkeling gears on the beach for checking out marine life. It also includes drinks and food.
