Costa Verde

Overview

Translated as the 'Green Coast', the Costa Verde stretches between Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and more than lives up to its name. The beauty of this region is its proximity to both cities - a maximum four hours away. With emerald green islands and scores of places to explore, you could isolate yourself in the Costa Verde for years on end.

Many locals have bought up swathes of coastline and built country houses and retreats – a beautiful break from citylife. The colonial town of Paraty is the hub of this quaint region. With its lovely cobbled streets and pastel coloured houses, it really is very charming.

Lightfoot Travel can arrange private houses in this area that come complete with all the modern gadgets and toys. Or alternatively, there are plenty of gorgeous boutique getaways that are the perfect way to round off your trip. Another must do is a day on a traditional schooner boat. Once out on the open ocean, you can really see what this region is about.

Lightfoot Travel creates tailor-made itineraries to Costa Verde and throughout Brazil. Our travel designers have explored the region, sampled the activities, and stayed at the properties we use. So when we make a recommendation, you can trust that it’s based on firsthand experience.
