A must-see are the many waterfalls with their crystal clear water. Professional guides can lead you to the most beautiful places in the Atlantic Rain forest and you will have the chance to discover fascinating tropical vegetation and colourful birds in their natural environment, preserved in a unique nature reserve. But you need not travel that far to see the wonders Brazil has to offer. You can spot Oncas and Turtles directly from the beautiful house in which you reside,everything is at your doorstep.

Many scenic bicycle routes
Go trekking (Trails through the rainforest lead to waterfalls and ruins of an old sugar mill. You'll meet members of a guarani indigenous community and local caiçaras.There are also beach trails, like Trilha das 7 Praias and Trilha das Sete Fontes)*.
Only 316 kms from Rio de Janeiro by car or bus
*(Schedule treks with A.M.E.U., a well-known, well-meaning and experienced group of ecotourism guides who, nevertheless, have elusive cell phone contact numbers. Get the updated number from the Ubatuba Tourist Information).
To taste some truly Ubatuba flavors try these:
Azul marinho ("navy blue"), the dish of the local fisherman communities (caiçaras). Although it may look exotic, you know all the ingredients in the recipe.
Order azul marinho at well-known seafood restaurants in central Ubatuba, near the airport: Peixe com Banana, named for the two main ingredients in the dish.
Also, O Rei do Peixe ("The Fish King",is found in Rua Guarani 480.)
For other alternatives try:
Perequim Restaurante e Pizzaria, Rua Guarani 385, Pasta and pizza, with more than 60 brands of beer and 100 wines on offer.
Rei do Peixe, Rua Guarani 480 - Itaguá. Specializes in seafood. All dishes are large portions intended for two people
Don't miss Rocha ice cream. Founded in 1947, Sorveteria Rocha is a North Shore can't-miss with ice cream shops in Ubatuba, São Sebastião and Ilhabela – all owned by the same family. With over 20 popsicle and 50 ice cream cone flavors.
If you just want a drink?....
Sucolândia – Juice Land. More than 40 kinds of fruit juices and smoothies are available, as well as the ubiquitous açaí na tigela – açaí in the bowl. Bring your pocket dictionary to make sure you understand all the healthy combinations, such as morango com melancia (strawberry and banana).
Anchieta Café, Av. Tamoios, 64.
Areia Summer House, Rodovia Rio Santos, km 101 - Praia Vermelha do Norte.
Coyote Bar, R Coronel Domiciano 74 - Centro.
Friends Lounge and Club. Good spot for a caipirinha.
Or just enjoy the night:
The best high season clubbing is at 180° (Prainha). Party long enough to catch at least one sunrise in Ubatuba. For all-night live music, go to Coyote Bar (Thur-Sat, 6pm, formerly Bar do Ulisses).
Or just walk around on the busy beaches - free fun!
