Ubatuba – The City of Birds

Ubatuba, aka Uba Chuva (Chuva meaning rain in Portuguese, in reference to the frequent rains this region receives) is one of the birdiest spots on the South American continent.  More than 550 birds have been identified within the city, more than a third of which are endemic to the south Atlantic rain forest of eastern Brazil.  Besides the rain forest and the amazing bird habitats are the numerous beaches.  A simply beautiful place.
