New Spafari Brazilian Journey
journey though Brazil, from the mountains to the sea. You'll
begin by exploring the second biggest city in the world, Sao
Paulo, famous for its gastronomic exuberance and history. On
our way to Itatiaia we experience the breathtaking view of
the Mantiqueira range, with altitudes up to 9,000 ft. For
the next four days, we are in the heart of these mountains;
crystal clear waterfalls, breathtaking hikes, magnificent
views, giant pre-historical ferns, orchids, bromeliads, and
giant bamboos. It's a wonderful setting for adventures of
all sorts (including a repelling lesson). Heading to Paraty
with a stop at Casarao Chalet, 120 year old coffee farm
plantation embedded at margin of two rivers and a bird
sanctuary is a delightful experience. We continue our
descent to Paraty, a charming 17th century colonial town set
between the hill and the sea, and blessed with a bay of calm
and clear waters. Paraty is one of those places that awaken
in you curiosity, admiration for nature, and the joy of
being alive. Secluded beaches, snorkeling, hikes,
gastronomic delights, and unforgettable sunsets.
A wonderful way of ending your adventure is experiencing 3
