and if you hang on a bit longer you see Michael of Paraty Explorer being interviewed in the old town.
And here's a youtube video of part of the David Byrne tour.
Michael is actually in this (yellow t-shirt) more than David Byrne. Maybe the camerman got confused with so many gringos around...
_Great news for Paraty as it makes the NY Times list of places to go as the most culturally rich destination on the Costa Verde. Special mention went to the FLIP literary festival, the Jazz festival and the photograpy festival.
The Carnival mud procession and the Cachaça festival didnt get a mention. Cant think why not...

Edward and Bella went to the tropical island of Isle Esme in Brazil for their honeymoon.
Or did they?
Isle Esme is of course a fictional place.
The movie was actually filmed on location in Paraty, Brazil, or more specifically at a beachfront house in Saco do Mamangua (beach pictured below), and at a waterfall in Taquari.
Paraty Explorer runs hiking day trips up the peak above the luxury honeymoon house (in photos above) for spectacular views of the house and surrounding area. We also run paddling trips (SUP and kayaking) on the calm waters of the tropical fjord in front of the movie location.
Paraty Explorer's thrilling Canyoning trip finishes in the waterfall pool where they kiss. Check out the rappel and zipline photos into the pool in the following photos:
