We have yet to find a place as beautiful as the San Juan's... until now.  Paraty, a small colonial town in-between Sao Paulo and Rio is stunning for it's location to the water and the beauty of the nearby islands.  We took a cruise through the islands on our first day and I literally could not stop taking photos. 

The next day we headed to the nearby town of Trindade.  We met a really nice woman from Brazil who now lives in New York and she showed us the good spots to hike to along the beach.  What a day!
