I advise. the day before on whatsApp they sent me the tickets for the boat and it was convenient. The only thing to improve is to provide information on where, once disembarked, you have to wait for the driver of the van. We got close to the sidewalk and after a while we saw the minibus with the word paraty tour stopping on the side of the road a little further on, but for a moment we felt a little lost. Anyway, nothing serious, the driver was on time and came to meet us.

The flight took a long time to reach the destination, they were waiting for us with a large car with conditioned air. As if it was a private transfer! The staff was very friendly at all times.
