An Abstract view Paraty, Brazil

Paraty, Brazil became famous in the sixties and seventies when actors across the globe visited to truly get away to a secluded and remote festive town in Brazil. Today, Paraty still has the flavor of a hidden paradise and has grown collectively to preserve its historical features of a once gold and silver port city of Portugal during the 1700's. It truly has the flavor of an international-glamour, "I want to be seen here" city. It offers the visitor everything from trekking on the gold trail, to diving in the bay, to enjoying one of the many fine restaurants in town. Paraty is almost equidistant between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil and is a short drive from these major cities.
