 Parati 'shows the peaceful side of Brazil'   -   05 Nov 2007

The town of Parati should be on the itinerary of anyone planning a holiday in Brazil, it has been advised.

Writing in the Telegraph, Katie Derham noted the town's balanced atmosphere - following a period as one of the world's most lucrative trading ports some 300 years ago, Parati remained untouched until the construction of a main coast road between Sao Paulo and nearby Rio de Janeiro, she explained.

Now, this immaculately-preserved sense of history mingles with the relaxed, tranquil lifestyle that characterises Parati in the 21st century, the writer observed.

"It is the most perfect gem of a place - picturesque without being manicured, lively without being overrun by gap-year students," she remarked.

Weaving a visit to Parati into a holiday in Brazil can open tourists up to experiences including fishing boat trips to tucked-away islands, low-key seafood restaurants and peaceful swimming coves.

Tourists looking for a good excuse to visit the town could drop by to recuperate following the Rio de Janeiro carnival, held 40 days before Easter.
