Paraty, Brazil. 'No place in Brazil blends colonial architecture with natural setting as does Paraty. Drop-dead gorgeous beaches and a stunning mountain backdrop jostle for attention with the multihued, cobblestoned charms of the 18th-century town center. If you get bored with sunbathing and sightseeing, cool off with a caipirinha, or whip up a gourmet Brazilian meal at the local cooking school.'
