Ilha Grande, Brazil
Ilha Grande is a natural treasure, virtually untouched by humans. One of the last protected remnants of the Atlantic Rainforest, it is home to a rich and diverse ecosystem, including some of the largest remaining populations of endangered species in the world. The surrounding waters are also protected, so it’s possible to see tropical fish, penguins and whales all swimming together in harmony. Largely undeveloped, there are no roads, let alone cars, on Ilha Grande, but hikers have a choice of sixteen jungle trails that wind through tropical forests, alongside pristine waterfalls and up majestic mountain peaks.

Parati, Brazil
A pedestrian-friendly historic center boasting beautifully preserved colonial architecture, cobbled lanes, and horse-drawn carts is among the many charms of Paraty, situated on Brazil's Costa Verde. Surrounded by a backdrop of steep, jungle-clad mountains and a bay sprinkled with myriad islands, Paraty is tentatively listed for UNESCO World Heritage recognition. The town's many attractions include an 18th-century church built in the baroque style and well worth a look.
