A delegation from Paraty, a city on the Costa Verde of Rio de Janeiro, met on the afternoon of this Tuesday (14), with the president of Embratur, Marcelo Freixo. The deputy mayor Izaques Marendaz, the Secretary of Education, Gabriela Gibrail, and the councilors Lucas Cordeiro and Professor Flora brought the city's tourist demand to Freixo, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Very visited by visitors from all over the world, enchanted by its natural beauties that unite the sea and the mountains, Paraty is also famous for annual events, such as music festivals, the Cachaça Festival and, mainly, the Flip (Feira Literária Internacional from Parati).
“Paraty is charming and has a lot of potential to increase and improve the arrival of foreign tourists by training local labor, for example. We are talking about including the city on the route of digital nomads and promoting the practice of ecotourism. We are also going to look for alliances to help organize events, such as Flip, which is a fair that is already consolidated in the Brazilian cultural calendar and which can attract even more foreign tourists”, affirmed Freixo.
