FOR most visitors to Brazil, the only glimpse of the land mass between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo comes as a green blur from the window of an airplane, en route from one city to the other. The area is known as the Costa Verde, or Green Coast, and even from an altitude of 23,000 feet there is no mistaking why. The aquamarine sea and the emerald forests rising up from the shore are the region's two dominating features, and at ground level they become even more imposing, offering the promise of both relaxation and adventure in the form of hundreds of beaches and thousands of acres of unspoiled tropical wilderness. More than anyone, the residents of Sao Paulo and Rio know that the best way to savor the coastline that lies between Brazil's two largest cities is simply to jump in a car and head out on Highway BR-101. The road begins about 25 miles west of downtown Rio, and for most of its sinuous 325-mile length, the view is uniformly spectacular: on one side, the South Atlantic breaking onto pristine beaches shaded by coconut palms, and on the other, verdant mountains framed against skies that are almost painfully blue. Even the names of the seaside towns just off the road have a certain poetry: Itaguai, Mambucaba, Parati, Ilhabela, Caraguatatuba to name just a few. By LARRY ROHTER
At the western end Serra da Bocaina National park, 60 miles from Angra dos Reis, lies Parati, by far the most beautiful of the colonial towns along the Costa Verde. This is the place Brazilian moviemakers favor when filming period pieces set in the days of Dom Pedro, the 19th-century Emperor of Brazil, or during Portuguese rule, and a stroll around town quickly confirms the wisdom of that choice. There are attractive fountains such as the Chafariz de Marmore, and even the Municipal Building appeals to the eye, but Parati's real glory is its well-preserved 18th-century houses, which have been whitewashed or painted in pastels. What was in colonial times the jail is now the town's tourist office, with cells converted into small shops that sell handcrafts, antiques and aguardente, a powerful liquor made from sugar cane. Parati also has beaches, which rival any in the region, and docks with an ample assortment of boats on which to fish or cruise the outlying islands. The 18th-century Forte do Defensor Perpetuo is also nearby and worth visiting. But overall, less strenuous pursuits seem most appropriate in Parati. The best hotels have gardens that are a permanent invitation to sit and rest, and there is no shortage of restaurants at which to linger over a peixada, or fish stew, Brazil's answer to bouillabaisse.
