Make a self catering villa or holiday rental in the Costa Verde, Brazil your home away from home

Costa Verde is the green coast which runs between Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Edged by the tropical Atlantic Ocean with its beautiful beaches, the inland area is covered in thick green rainforest. It is the perfect area to combine with a stay in the city of Rio. Explore this remote and breathtaking area by car, stopping from time to time to explore the picturesque villages along the way, particularly during local feast days.

Things to Do in Costa Verde, Brazil

The Costa Verde is ideal for road trips along the highway which runs between the two main cities. Discover the area’s wildlife and exotic birds or explore some of the small communities scattered along this scenic area. The offshore islands can be reached by boat trips where sunbathing, swimming and fishing can be enjoyed. Shipwrecks, coral reefs and seas teeming with colourful fish provide excellent opportunities for diving and snorkeling. Take a trip in a glass-bottomed boat, go surfing on the waves or enjoy water skiing in the sheltered bays. Lively music and nightlife can be found in most towns and Jurubaiba and Pria do Dentista have floating bars which cater to boat passengers and revelers floating in the water. Dance the samba in the clubs or bar-hop in Leblon.

Places to Visit in Costa Verde, Brazil

The city of Ubatuba has a beach to suit most visitors. Some cater for families, others are popular with yachts at anchor, or with surfers, fishermen or shoppers. For nature lovers, the Serra da Bocaina National Park covers a massive 25,000 acres and rivals the Amazon jungle with its biodiversity. Birdwatchers may hear the rare macuco bird on a trip to the magnificent Iguazu Falls, not to be confused with the much larger Iguassu Falls on the Argentinean border. A trip to Rio de Janeiro will allow visitors from Costa Verde holiday rentals to enjoy all the contrasting sights of the area. Rio’s best known attractions include the views from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado Mountain. The nearby Ilha Grande is easy to reach by boat and its graceful mountains are covered with forests. Continue down to Paraty and get a glimpse of the area’s colonial past with its historic buildings and the sounds of the bossa nova playing in the bars.

Weather in Costa Verde, Brazil

Holiday rentals in Costa Verde enjoy around 300 days of sunshine per year. The area around Rio de Janeiro has warm temperatures from December to April when it reaches 29°C (84°F). From June to October which is Brazil’s dry season, temperatures average a pleasant 24°C (75°F).

Travel to Costa Verde, Brazil

Holiday rentals in the Costa Verde are easily reached by air to the Rio de Janeiro-Galeao International (GIG) Airport which lies about 10km from the centre of the city. There are regular buses to the city centre and taxis are available. The best way to avoid being overcharged is to buy a prepaid taxi voucher from the State of Tourism desk. Those staying on the Costa Verde may want to pick up a hire car from the airport to complete the journey.

We initially stayed as a Group of 16 during the World Cup in this property and another Paraty beachfront property. The intention was to have 8 people in each property. Within an hour of arriving, we had 14 adults in Simon and Helena's place, and only 2 in the other Beach front property! Simon and Helena go the extra mile in organising every off and on site detail. Cida and Tereza do all your cooking, washing, cleaning with no fuss. Simon will organise everything, from making sure we had enough beers, going to the supermarket, chemist, doctor anything. Simon then organises all the off site excursions with a wide network of local drivers and suppliers. Simon organises, they will pick you up and take you wherever you want to go. Simon is English, but speaks fluent Portuguese, as does Helena. After the Group of 14 left, my family from New Zealand arrived, with friends and our Group of 7 had a great extra week. Very relaxing! This place can genuinely sleep 18, but groups of 10-14 will feel very comfortable, as we did. Go to this place! you will love it!
