Angra dos Reis
The Brazilian soap operas that swarm the Portuguese televisions, have created a superlative image of this locality, that results in a certain disillusionment when it arrives.
In fact, Angra dos Reis is a common seaport, which has its charm in the multiple islands scattered across the bay.
Thus, a boat trip is mandatory.
We did our boat trip, but starting in a different point of the bay – Parati.
Is is further from Rio de Janeiro, and that may explain the option of Angra, however, the city of Parati is a marvel that occupies well the free time between trips.
