Parati or Buzios

by Bompas Online Now Aug 15, 2005 at 8:49 AM

We are planning a trip to Rio at the end of September - after that we could either spend 4 days in Parati or Buzios. Although we like cultural villages we are concerned that 4 days is too much for Parati and that we should rather look at Buzios. Or maybe we should spend an extra day in Rio and 3 days in Parati. Can anyone assist? thanks

    Hi! 3 days in Paraty seems the best way but don't forget that the trip from Rio to Paraty needs 4/5 hours...quite a day... Lazying in paraty a day and a trip in the bay with a boat ...That means 4 days...

    My reply is suspicious, because I particularly love Paraty. But here are some hints:

    1) Paraty AND Búzios is impossible for 4 days.

    2) 4 days won't be enough if you get to visit nearby Trindade. You could mix the cultural/laidback with some serious hiking and beautiful beaches, both in Trindade and a bit away from Paraty.

    3) There is also a day's hike on the Caminho do Ouro, that can be combined with a visit to an alambique (cachaça factory).

    Hope you enjoy your visit and don't underestimate Paraty... :)
