RIO DE JANEIRO - Located only 40 minutes (25 kilometers) by local bus from Paraty is the small village of Trindade. It is truly a taste of paradise – beautiful white beaches and crystal clear water surrounded by dense Atlantic Rainforest - if you really want to get away from the stress of the modern world this is the perfect place.
Trinidade does not have a big place in history, with fishing and hunting its main sources of sustenance. Worth mentioning though is the part it played as a pirate hideout when boatloads of gold were shipped to . . .
