Paraty is a small coastal town between Rio and Sao Paulo. The first night we stayed in a hostel in town, the next day we took a few kms walk to the coastline where the hostel was right on the beach - hammocks, sea kayaks and table tennis. Felt like a dream holiday. We rented the kayaks and headed up a small stream which circles back through the town and then our into the 'harbour' area. There was a small island off the coast so we aimed for that. About an hour later we touched the island and headed back as I was starting to get sea sick. We hit the sand and I tumbled out the boat and lay on the ground until the world stopped bobbing.

The next day we did an island hopping tour on a local sailing boat - 4 islands (~R120 amazing deal). You get to go swimming, snorkelling and walking along the beach. It was incredibly beautiful - so untouched and clear. The water was crystal blue, cool and refreshing. On the return trip is started to rain - soft and warm, so we went swimming in the sea again before heading back to
