When you’re on vacation and it rains….

When planning a trip to the Green Coast of Rio de Janeiro state, you should better check the weather forecast first. This region, a green corridor that runs along the south coastline of Rio de Janeiro state, besides being extremely beautiful rains a lot.

But we had to plan this little vacation some months ago, and we had to pick the days according to my husband schedule at work, so we  had to take our chances to see how weather was going to be.

Our first idea was spending our 4 day vacation in Paraty, a small historical and preserved town in the region. But we didn’t manage to book a hotel room with a good infrastructure for children for the days we had.  So we changed our plans and decided to stay in a resort in Angra dos Reis, around 43 km far from Paraty, Hotel do Bosque. And turned out to be the right decision!!! The first two days of our trip were rainy, as it was in all Rio de Janeiro state, and if we weren’t in a hotel with so many activities I don’t know what I would do with my 5 year old boy.

Besides all the rain  we still had a great time. The weather was warm enough to enjoy what the hotel had to offer: tennis courts, 4 pools, soccer field, playground, besides other sport activities like kayaking, hiking, among others.

Finally, in the last two days the weather turned out good and we even got tanned!!

We enjoyed our time by the pool and went to the hotel beach ( a little boat takes you to the beach through the river that separates the hotel from the beach shore).

In the third day we woke up early and decided to ride to Paraty to spent the day there.  We had a lovely time there.  But let’s talk about Paraty later!!

Have a nice sunday!

The Hotel has many birds in the property. I had the pleasure of watching this charming peacock display his beautiful plumage to me.

But then, the weather started to get better, and my boy still had energy to spend in the pool.

And with no heavy clouds in the sky we could finally see the landscape around the hotel.
