Paraty is a city in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Founded in 1667, the city still has many aspects of its original Portuguese colonial architecture. This includes and impressive fort and nice central plaza with a stunning church. Another amazing feature of this old port city is the fact that is was designed so that the tide would wash up on the streets to clean out the trash. Outside of the town are several nice islands that are wonderful no matter the time of year. Lastly for the seafood fan this is the city of choice! Therefore if you have a few extra days in Rio and get tired of the big city hop over to this beautiful off the beaten track town and buy some cheap fruit in the local market near the port.
The FLIP has already received some of the great names of world literature such as Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan, Martin Amis, Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Anthony Bourdain, Jonathan Coe, Jeffrey Eugenides, David Grossman, Lidia Jorge, Pierre Michon, Rosa Montero, Michael Ondaatje, Orhan Pamuk, Colm Toíbín, Enrique Vila-Matas, Jeanette Winterson, J. M. Coetzee and Marcello Fois.
The nearest airports are located in Rio de Janeiro, with a large number of domestic and international services throughout South America and further away.
Paraty is not the easiest city to get to although it is easier now with more direct buses. The long trip is worth the visit to see an unspoiled place and to eat great food.

Correios is the national postal service of Brazil. It is a government run postal service and overseen by the Brazilian Ministry of Communications. Post offices are generally open from Monday to Friday from 09:00am to 5:00pm, although post offices located in shopping malls have their own opening hours, usually from 10:00am to 10:00pm. There are no set opening hours at weekends and as post office owners can choose when to open and close. More and more post offices are open until 1:00pm on Saturdays though. You can check things at the nearest post office. Sending postcards, letters and parcels is a rather straightforward process and services are reliable, though not overly fast when sending post internationally, mostly taking about a week to the USA and Europe, and there is a track-and-trace service for this as well. Domestically, there are both next day as well as more expensive same day delivery options. Stamps are available at post offices, as well as some kiosks or other places where they sell postcards.
