Open Green Map

We are happy to announce that we are moving our map on to the new Open Green Map. We are working to move all of the 60 sites from Paraty Green Map to Open Green Map, so you may see a reduced number of sites for the next few months.

The Open Green Map (OGM) offers several advantages, primarily the interaction with the icons, searchability on the map, and integration with the entire Green Map Organization. Congratulations to the Green Map team for realizing the OGM in 2009!!! We hope you enjoy the Paraty Open Green Map.

Please send us an email if you run into any problems.
