Hi! I'm living in Sao Paulo and planning a weekend trip with sister who's coming from Korea. She's been to Rio de Janeiro and Iguasso and I've been to Rio, Iguasso, Salvador, Florianopolis, Fortaleza etc.
It will be from Friday to Sunday for three adults (my husband, I and my sister) and my 2 year old son.
I've been searching about TA Top 10 destinations in Brazil and Buzios and Paraty seem great to me. I know there are many beautiful places up in the north but the flights are pretty expensive for all 4 of us.
I guess it's too cold to swim in September in both places? This won't be a big problem because I'm not much of a beach person and it's quite hard to keep the toddler under control at beach anyway! I'm looking for beautiful scenery, good dining and maybe a bit of sightseeing if there are.
Buzios is attractive with nice dining and relatively short distance from Rio airport but Paraty seems to offer more to see with colonial buildings etc.
Could you give me advice which is better for us esp. with a toddler?
Thank you in advance!
