Only you go through – Paraty - to arrive in Ubatuba as you come from the North. It should take about 3 hours.

From downtown: go in the direction of the bridge. Pass it and go ahead. See the crossroad and go straight ahead to the beach, and turn to the left and go. You’ll see a beautiful blue colour wall full of dolphins and a big gate.
