Parati, prounounced Parachi, is a magical city between Rio and Santos.

The city is right at the edge of the green jungle. The city was designated by UNESCO as a patrimony city. Most of the city is just like it was back in colonial times.

One of the delights of Parati is taking a boat, small or big, out for a day of swimming and beach stops. You go from island to island, beach to beach, stopping for lunch. The bigger boats have a set itinerary, but the smaller ones allow you to choose the place and time.

The town itself has a delightful small municipal museum. There are plenty of shops, stores, restaurants and a few churches.

One of the delights is sampling the local made hooch, made from sugar cane (not molasses) in a "caparinha."
