"SOME CALLS IT "THE MOST ROMANTIC PLACE IN BRAZIL"" Ilha de Paquetá by janaina

Ilha de Paquetá Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 5 photos

Paqueta,which consists of only one square kilometer island,is cosidered a very romantic place!..
It remends me a lot of Paraty's atmosphere,the nostalgy of its colonial houses invites visitors to savor along,leisurely walks.
However,those yearning for thepiece and quiet of a lonely stretch of white sand should bear in mind that when the weekends rolls around,the island's beaches tend to be thronged!
Guanabara Bay consists of 113 islands,and the first in extension and population is Ilha Do Governador,Paqueta is the second one.
It's located only 17km from Rio's city center,to reach the island,ferry boats leave at XV De Novembro square.
The inhabitants move within the island by bike,horses or a small train,with a few nbr of vehicles,used only for public services,as ambulances.
