Fodor's Review

A private, protected nature reserve near Pinheiros Bay, the Reserva Ecológica do Sebuí is an immersive way to experience the Atlantic Forest, in one of the best preserved stretches of forest that remains on Brazil's coast. Owned and run by the eccentric Italian Enzo Sebastiani, the reserve contains 1,000 acres of primary rain forest, as well as saltwater mangroves, rivers, waterfalls, and forested islands, all of which can be explored on foot and by boat, with Enzo—or an English-speaking biologist—as your guide. Built in a former banana plantation, the lodging consists of wooden huts and a house built on stilts, all powered by solar energy, and is only accessible via boat. A minimum of two nights and four people is required. Per person, for two nights, all-inclusive prices are R$750 from Guaraqueçaba (160-km/100-mile drive from Curitiba), R$950 from the port of Paranaguá, and R$1,250 from Cananéia, on the São Paulo border.
