After hotel pickup, travel by minibus to Trindade, located just 15 miles (25 km) southeast of Paraty. Your guide first takes you to a beach near the village of Ranchos, where your small group will embark on a guided trek past three more beaches, ending at the natural swimming pool of Caixa d’Aço. Marvel at the pristine coastline, strewn with unique rock formations along the sand leading to forested alcoves.
The hike to the fishing village takes 50 minutes, passing through beautiful natural mountain forests and glades within Bocaino Mountains National Park. When you reach Caixa d’Aço, spend your free time snorkeling and swimming in the crystal-clear waters, framed by the lush green landscape of the Atlantic Forest.
Travel to the main village of Trindade for more relaxing in the sun and sea. If you’d like, enjoy the local cuisine with plenty of kiosks and restaurants offering seafood dishes for purchase (own expense) before your minivan drops you off at your hotel in Paraty.
