São Paolo & the Green Coast of BrazileBook - 2009
The Green Coast is a resort area just hours from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Here, amid the many unspoiled beaches, mountains and waterfalls, you can find lush island hideaways once used by pirates. The region takes its name from the striking color of the Ilha Grande Bay, considered one of the most beautiful coastlines in Brazil. The main destinations are Paraty and the mostly uninhabited island of Ilha Grande. There are in fact 365 islands, one for every day of the year, as the locals like to say. To make the most of your trip you should visit them, at least on a day cruise. Angra dos Reis.
