    Default A Fishing Village Turned Hot Spot in Brazil

    Trancoso, a former fishing village in Brazil, has turned into a super-trendy getaway for Brazilians and fashionable jet-setters willing to pay St.-Tropez prices for an unspoiled beach. El Gordo is a romantic restaurant set around a serene pool.





    One of the most laid-back spots is Espelho Beach, about a half-hour car ride from town.

    So now the fishermen and their families have been priced out. Gentrification sometimes sucks.
