Paraty

(4.2/5 based on 30,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, historic sites, nature
Gazing out over a bay of tiny tropical islands, with rainforests climbing mountains in the background, it's easy to see why tourism in Paraty gets more popular by the year. Nestled among that memorable scenery, the town of around 36,000 people displays some of Brazil's best-preserved colonial architecture, whose colorful wooden doorframes enliven distinctive white facades. The cobbled streets of Paraty's old town remain in top shape, thanks in part to the decision to ban traffic from the historical center. Easy access to some of Brazil's best beaches adds another layer of appeal to the heritage-protected town.

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.
