What a beautiful place. Above expectations. No tacky plastic Coca Cola chairs to be seen, as often found in most Spanish tourist places. Everything is well preserved and well thought through.
I recommend NOT to take a tourist boat out to the beaches- they are loud and crowded. Rent a private boat instead, just ask in the harbour they late afternoon before. It’s worth it.
Lots of nice eating places. This is just a paradise. It’s a tourist place so it can be busy but we found ways to avoid the crowds but taking a private boat and we stayed in a quite and secluded boutique hotel.

Very nice old city, it is nice to walk around in the center. Only downside is he streets are really difficult to walk due to the stones.

Centro historico of Paraty is absolutely beautiful. Many small streets with shops, restaurants and bars, as well as churches.
I'm definitely going back whenever I'll have the chance

The historic center of Paraty retains the colonial charm of its architecture full of colors and beautiful places to walk, eat or visit the galleries and craft shops.

Such a great place with cobbled streets and great houses dotted along the many streets that make Paraty's old town. Get lost and discover the many lovely shops and restaurants, have an ice cream, grab a beer and watch the evening overlooking the bay. Great place, worth visiting.

Very ennoying to walk within the centro historico; it seems they dig-in the sewage system, but did not redo the street properly. Probably too dangerous for older people !

Try to learn about the historical district before you go- or do a walking tour, the buildings are seeped with an interesting history and is a rare surviving part of Brazil's past. Make sure you wear decent shoes though- the roads in the historic district are the original ones and the mortar between the stones have washed away throughout the years.

I really don’t know why it took me so long to come to this place, specially being a Brazilian from São Paulo. The city center is awesome with loads of history and beautiful places to see and eat. Loved it even more in the evening. Wow, couldn’t recommend more travelers to come and enjoy this gem... REALLY loved it!
