Two days in Paraty, which is one of Brazil’s prettiest colonial towns, with the historic centre being declared a national historic monument in its entirety. My first day in town was spent ambling around the historic centre and then catching some of the free live music in the main square in the evening. A super, super hot day, so not one for doing too much. The humidity was something else and you are simply drenched in sweat after 5 minutes in the open air.

The second day on the coast was spent on a very enjoyable boat ride around the islands and sandy beaches close to the town. I can certainly see why they call it the emerald coast, where some of the beaches were stunning. Lots of opportunities for swimming off the boat which was great fun. The only thing trying to conspire again us was the weather where it rained all afternoon. Still very warm, but very, very wet. Not much fun when you are camping!
