The best (and tastiest!) way to explore the Rainforest near Paraty is with foraging expert, Jorge, who has unrivalled knowledge of the edible local fruits, flowers and plants. This is a fascinating and fun day out for anyone interested in wild food or just curious about the Rainforest!
More

* A traveler said: "Jorge and Rodrigo were incredible people. They have completely changed our conception of what food is. This experience is not about finding food as we know it in the forest but rather traveling back in time rediscovering the lost knowledge of what forest can provide. To fully enjoy this experience you’ll need to keep an open mind because during the walk you will be discovering things that are edible and consume them. The experience will vary depending on what you happen to find in the forest. There might be a tour or two on the same day so in this case the early birds definitely get the worms. If you have the chance, ask Jorge for restaurant recommendations. He consults with chefs from Paraty and that can definitely enhances your gastronomic experience!"
