CELEBRATE CARNIVAL IN PARATY, RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!
Come to Paraty and live a party like no other: Paraty Carnival! Paraty celebrates carnival in a very different way from Rio de Janeiro. Carnival here includes a Sea Carnival, Carnamar, the regular Carnival and the now famous Bloco da Lama (Mud Group parade). Discover a carnival beyond the typical postcard with our promotional Carnival in Paraty Packages.
Bloco da Lama (Mud Group) is a Paraty carnival classic. On the Saturday of Carnival, thousands of people get covered in the medicinal mud of Jabaquara beach and parade mimicking a prehistoric tribe, with rags, bones and yelling “uga, uga, rá, rá!” You can´t miss this parade, there is nothing like it in the rest of Brazil.

Paraty Carnival currently has seven blocks: Os Paulos; Tô Que Vamos; Os Meninos do Pontal, Paraty do Amanhã; Academic Patitiba da; Tribo do eo Samba Bloco da Lama.
The bloco da Lama is the most famous. Its rarity and originality have attracted the attention of the press and the curious people. It was borne in the early 90’s on a Saturday of carnival, with the help of a group of friends who used to bathe in the medicinal mud of Praia Jabaquara and they see each other unrecognizable, and decided to show in the carnival covered in mud.
The following year a bigger group showed in the carnival representing a kind of prehistoric tribe: they had mud all over their bodies, covered in rags, carrying skulls and skeletons and screaming Uga, uga, RA Ra! Given the exit that had since then, the Ministry of Tourism of Paraty and the organizers of the carnival have been campaigning with the participants, through the local media on the importance of not littering walls, cars or people are going through the streets, helping to preserve the tradition.
