A couple of Canadian guys had told us of a hostel near Pararty that we had to go to. The town was called Trinidade and was meant to be beaches rain forest and a small fishing town. Well we had found paradise. The hostel was set in the rainforest, and we got our own little room for the same price as a dorm room. We had planed to stay for about 4 days and we ended up being there for a week! The beaches were amazing, green tropical rain forest rolling down the cloud covered mountains that hit the white sand. The water was about 22degrees and crystal clear, and there were waves with surfers playing about.
If you are in the area, Trinidade is a must. We mainly spent our time at the beach, where we had found a little tree that had a bit of shade when the sun got too much. But we also went for a few walks through the rainforest to a little waterfall and also to a natural swimming pool. The swimming pool was made by a heap of rocks separating the sea from the coast. It was very pretty and lots of little fish were living in there, so that they would nibble at your feet while you walked through. We didn't really want to leave, but our time was running out and we had to get to Rio.
