In the morning we step back in time on the Gold Trail, the paved road built by African slaves in the 18th Century to bring gold and precious stones out of the Brazilian interior and onto ships bound for Portugal. After walking on the trail through the rainforest we stop at a freshwater pool and the thrilling toboggan natural waterslide where the locals practice rock surfing. Before catching the bus back to Paraty we visit a cachaça distillery where the rum is still made the traditional way.

After a stop for lunch (not included in price) we explore the historic old town of Paraty, a UNESCO nominated World Heritage site, on foot. On this fascinating walking tour your expert local guide will take you back to the Portuguese discovery of Brazil and trace the development of Paraty through the sugar, gold and coffee economic booms.

Beautiful colonial architecture, street design ahead of its time, exiled Portuguese royalty and the dark past of the slave trade – these are just some of the ingredients that make up Paraty’s rich and colorful history from the past to the present day.
