Rainforest-clad mountainsides rising above the beaches

Ubatuba is located on the southeast coast of Brazil in the state of São Paulo. The city name (pronounced ‘ooba-Tuba’) comes from the Tupi word ‘uyba’ or ‘canoes’ and ’tuba’ meaning ‘many’.

Ubatuba is historically significant as it is where the Portuguese signed the first treaty of peace of the Americas with the Tupinamba Indians, which kept Brazil in Portuguese hands, retaining one language and one faith.

Today Ubatuba is a key vacation destination for wealthy Brazilians and visitors from all over the world who are attracted by Ubatuba’s 70-odd beaches. With stunning scenery and rainforest-clad mountainsides rising above the beaches, tourists will not be surprised to learn that part of Ubatuba lies inside one of the state's largest conservation areas.
