Discover colonial treasures and lush landscapes along Brazil’s Green Coast

Explore one of the world’s greatest eco-destinations when you hug Brazil’s emerald coastline for the first time. Costa Verde (Green Coast) lies between the rainforests of the great Amazon Basin and rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The jade-coloured waters and lush landscapes, with white beaches and islands, meander from Itaguaí to Santos protected by the colossal, crystalline mountain range, Serra do Mar.

Get your first taste of life along Costa Verde with a journey through the Serra de Bocaina National Park, a region of incredible biodiversity, home to sloth, monkey and big cat, en-route to the historic port town of Paraty. Stroll the cobbled streets and learn more about this Portuguese colony renowned for its architecture and ornate churches.

After a day exploring, treat yourself to a caipirinha cocktail in the quiet garden of Pousada Do Sandi. Or you can retreat to the restored 18th-century mansion of Casa Turquesa, where you can hike through tropical rainforest to hidden waterfalls. Horse lovers may also want to join a full moon ride which takes place from Fazenda Catuçaba.

Head to the glamorous bay of Buzios. This traditional fishing village was put on the map in the 1960s by French model Brigitte Bardot. Today, you’ll find more than 20 pristine beaches in and around this Mediterranean-styled peninsula. Our top spot for sailing and kayaking is the horseshoe-shaped bay of Praia de Ferradura.
