If none of this appeals, keep going until you hit Ubatuba, another popular tourist destination. Peak season falls around January and February, when tourists pour in from Rio and São Paulo. Much of the rest of the year, however, is wonderfully tranquil.
If you tire of lazing about on one of the 80 beaches that grace its 100 or so km of coastline, or get bored with the variety of watersports on offer, Ubatuba boasts a selection of natural wonders. Among them is the Cachoeira de Prumirium, a cascade of waterfalls that, with care, you can bathe in, following a trek through the areas numerous forest trails. And if you’re looking for a little party action, the town itself offers nightlife aplenty.
