Full of "cachaçarias"and beautiful waterfalls, it is amid the rainforest. The noise of birds is wonderful. Not safe to go when it's dark, though.

although the ride along Estrada Real is very nice, I suggest buying a ticket from one of the local agencies in Paraty for they have Land Roovers. It is not advisable to do it with one"s car since it is very muddy and somewhat dangerous
