Wow, this area is beautiful. My wife and I are currently traveling full-time (@quenchyouradventure if you’d like to follow along) and we’re so happy to get a taste of this paradise. We were confused about the exact meeting time. We saw both 9 and 9:30 in the app. We sent a message to Paraty Tours. They confirmed it’s 9AM and said they would try to fix the error. We after 9. The first stop is stunning. Giant boulders on the beach. We continued to Trindade and from there we were on foot. The hike through the national park was great. Some sections on the beach and a few through the jungle. It’s soft enough to do it all barefoot, but sandals or flip flops are good too. The natural pool is so fun to explore, swim, etc. and we paid for the boat back to the national park entrance. R$20 each. We then ate a fancy lunch on the beach and took a short walk through town before driving back. Great times.

Very nice trip with lots of stops to swim and relax. Friendly crew. Unfortunately only one photographer spoke English. Everything was announced only in portuguese. Foods and drinks available on board, breathtaking landscapes and lovely beaches to be seen. Wonderful!

We loved the tour, and actually went on the same tour the day after, as we found it to be a great activity in the hot weather, with all needed amenities onboard the ship.

Very professional and a very fun trip with beautiful nature and beaches

it was ok BUT too long time at The lunch. 90min too long!!!
