We receive romantic couples, families and small groups for leisure or seminars as well. American, Europeans and Argentine business travellers will start or end a week of work in this very special place.


To help you to enjoy better your stay with us, some information on our region and its peculiar opportunities of leisure follows :

Besides the two beaches of the village (Jabaquara and Pontal), you will like to sail to surrounding dozens of island beaches of all sizes, always almost deserted (far from road access they remained preserved).

> On some of them, for your pleasure, you’ll find small bars and restaurants offering sea-food and the marvelous Brazilian special cocktail, our “caipirinha”.

To reach them, you can :

rent fisherman boats transformed and equiped to accommodate up to 10 people and costing 15/20 reais per hour – (6 to 8 US$ per hour) ;

board medium size sailing boats (“saveiros”) motorized and prepared for charter tours of parties of up to 40 to 60, generally with few clients on weekdays ; you’ll enjoy a circuit of 3 beaches with stops for swimming and/or lunch : cost 15 to 25 reais per person (6 to 10 US$ per participant) ;

> or choose sailing with a diving instructor (+/- 10 of them in Parati), including two of them sailing from our marina.

Some beaches can be reached with a car and are distant 12 to 20 miles : Picinguaba, Tarituba, São Gonçalo... For reasonable fees of 25 to 40 reais (10 to 16 US$), cabs will take you there.

You should not miss trekking in the mountain (following the gold trail used by Portuguese to explore gold and other amenities...) or on seaside trails, to reach natural swimming pools, waterfalls whose whiteness tears down the greenness of the forest. You will be in the middle of the Bocaina National Reserve.
