Rio State Package
The best the state of Rio de Janeiro has to offer in 7 Days / 6 Nights
The state of Rio de Janeiro offers much more than people realize. With this trip, travelers will have all the opportunities to enjoy paradise. Explore the beaches and islands of Rio's "Green Coast" as we take you from the urban setting of Rio de Janeiro to the wonderful island setting of Ilha Grande. Ilha Grande is one of the most pristine remnants of Brazil's Atlantic rainforest, one of the richest ecosystems in the world, and a hotspot for biodiversity and conservation. It holds some of the largest remaining populations of many endangered species. The seas around the island, which are also protected, feature a unique convergence of tropical, subtropical, and temperate-zone marine life, and may be the only waters in the world where it is possible to see corals and tropical fish along with Magellanic penguins and Southern right whales. Paraty, is a lovely colonial town, 200 km from Rio de Janeiro on Ilha Grande Bay, Brazil's southeastern coast. It lies on the border between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo states. It's a favorite with Brazilians and visitors who want to get away from it all in an historic town, lie in the sun on one of the many beaches, and indulge in a restful vacation. Go island hopping by boat around Paraty, explore colonial Paraty by jeep, wander around the idyllic beaches on Ilha Grande and experience the charm of living in local "Pousadas". This tour is for anyone who wants to see more of the state of Rio than just the iconic Rio de Janeiro.
