On arrival in Paraty we can arrange to meet you at the bus station, and for your luggage to be carried to the hotel, which is a 10 minute walk away. (NB wheeled luggage wasn't designed for Paraty's 18th century cobbled streets!)
Alternatively it is possible to travel from either city with a local travel agency www.paratytours.com.br by shared minivan for R$180 per person. Departure times and frequency of this third-party minivan service vary by demand.
The town has a small airstrip accessible to private and chartered planes and helicopters but there are currently no commercial air services to Paraty.
