Paraty is a popular tourist destination, well known for its colonial architecture buildings and its stunning surroundings with beautiful islands, coasts, waterfalls and hills. The colonial architecture of Paraty has been well preserved and it is a candidate for a UNESCO world heritage nomination. The cosy pedestrian-only streets of its historic center offer a great variety of arts&crafts shops, thriving restaurants and bars. One of the main tourism attractions of Paraty is a boat trip to the crystalline-water white-sand islands and coves close to its coast.
