Paraty: Number of days? - Recommendations please (also Ilha Grande)

Jump to last reply

I've been to Rio several times and thought I'd start this coming trip with a few days in Paraty. I travel alone, enjoy the beach, culture, music (all things Brasil) but am not a 'party animal'.
How many days would you recommend for a stay in Paraty?
I'd be arriving in Rio mid-morning so probably wouldn't arrive in Paraty until late afternoon Friday. Would leaving on Monday morning give me "enough" time there (just over 2 full days) or should I add another day?
Also - Pousada recommendations? I'm budget minded: Nothing fancy but not a backpacker either.
And - Transportation to/from Rio? Is the best (or only?) way to go from the airport to bus station to take a bus - or are there shuttle-type services from the airport?
Lastly - I was deciding between Ilha Grande and Paraty. Do you think Paraty is best?
Please respond by post or directly by e-mail:

If you do e-mail, please put BRAZIL in the subject so I can spot the note easily.
Thanks/Obrigado.
Jason
