This 13-day guided itinerary will take you to Costa Verde, a beautiful region located in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, one of the world’s greatest eco-destinations. This program takes in a pinch of colonial history and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, hiking, snorkelling, kayaking and a lot of beach hopping. Visit the tropical wild places of Ilhabela and Ubatuba, the historic town of Santos, Paraty and Angra dos Reis, the pristine nature of Saco do Mamanguá and more. Hike in Serra de Bocaina National Park, a region of incredible biodiversity, home to sloth, monkey and big cat, as well as a rich historic past. Emerald-jade waters, lush landscapes, white-sand beaches and islands, colossal mountain range – Costa Verde is beyond picturesque. Stay in charming hotels, meet the local caicara people and try organic food prepared with love. The trip can be adapted to a different length. You can start either in Sao Paulo or in Rio de Janeiro and we will adjust the trip depending where you arrive. This is a great option for nature lovers who are looking to spend time closer to nature, but also to history and culture mongers, who like to go back in time in authentic places.
