    The old bag in Paraty is distinguished by two excellent choices, one is to visit the cave that can only be done with low tide and the other is to take advantage of and make a good caipirinha at the bar of the "Passion of the Alive" which I know since 1995 when it was still administered by the Nice Alive (now deceased) and eat a good portion of fried fish or shrimp or Octopus or even lunch. Visit worth

    Beach clean, crystal clear water, fish swimming along with the swimmers, with the cave also to be admired. Well worth spending a few hours on this site. Don't go just to see the cave, is the beach itself is a major attraction.

    We arrived on the beach of the old bag. We got off the boat and the boatmen led on a hillside of stone. And we did a little path between the stones and we arrived in a very interesting cave until you have a good time and not cause phobia in people. Interesting take a camera water proof or a dust cap water proof for mobiles to make some pictures. My daughter was with me and liked it

Where to stay in Paraty

If you want close proximity to raucous summer nightlife and some of the best things to see in Paraty, look no further than the historical center. There you can choose from any number of guesthouses, inns, and boutique hotels, which integrate seamlessly into the town's colonial architecture. If beach access is your primary concern, cross the canal and head a few minutes north, until you arrive at the coastal neighborhood of Jabaquara, where you'll find a range of cozy options. Farther from the center, the hillside neighborhood of Pantanal offers something a bit quieter among the trees.
