    I did this walk with the Guide Pedro Brito for a while and met a living history of the imperial era, the golden path, the first paved road, built by slaves in the style "chikki" with very well preserved until today and with remnants of the season, because of a recent excavation. Amidst an exotic vegetation, enjoy the rich fauna and flora of the Atlantic forest. The walk is in some difficulty due to the incline, but calmly and will win with ease, involved with the narratives of stories, tales and efficient instruction guide Pedro Gold track tourism, specialized on this tour.

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.
