RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Located at the entrance of Costa Verde (Green Coast) along the southern shoreline of Rio State, Mangaratiba has frequently been overlooked - considering Ilha Grande, and Paraty's tourism appeal. However, Mangaratiba offers stunning nature and solid hotel infrastructure, and is closer and less expensive.

Only 100 kilometers away from Rio de Janeiro and located between the bays of Ilha Grande and Sepetiba, Mangaratiba's region includes over thirty islands and a hundred beaches.

Among the main beaches, Muriqui is definitely the most eventful one.

Ideal for visitors looking for good infrastructure . . .
