Bossa Nova hostel is the best place to fall in love with MPB :) :D Bruno and Victor are great host and the staffs are wonderful, all very attentive and it's great hanging out with them. Paraty goes far beyond the historical context, it has many wonderful beaches, intense trekking with lots of adventure for nature lovers.
