Brazil is a gem of a country, with sights, sounds and people to match. Sao Paulo is its economic center, Salvador its spiritual heartland, the Pantanal /Amazon its wildlife wonderland, and Rio de Janeiro its essence and super-star.
Many say Rio de Janeiro is a state of mind, and no two people will describe it the same. That is the beauty of Rio. Whether it’s the music, the dance, the people, or its unique cityscape viewed from atop Sugarloaf or Corcovado, you will return home wondering why you had waited so long to visit.
For the more tranquil, explore the coastal towns of Buzios and Angra dos Reis. Relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery from one of the many charming bed and breakfasts along picturesque coastlines. Brazil’s colonial past is very much alive in Salvador de Bahia, where its echoes are still very vibrant with its Brazilian-Afro heritage. Salvador is also home to the largest Carnival in the world!
One of Brazil’s most famous attractions, and shared with Argentina, is Iguassu Falls, a natural wonder to be seen up close. Here you can also revel in the splendor of its natural forests, rivers and lakes, as well as the world’s 2nd largest hydroelectric work, the Itaipu Dam.
Another jewel of Brazil is the region Belo Horizonte, Ouro Preto, Marinas, Tiradentes, and San Jao do Rey, which will bring you back to Brazil’s 18th century golden age. Each with its own history, with colonial architecture very much alive, cobble stones streets and wrought iron lanterns, antique stores and arts to fill a museum.
For lovers of surf & sand, Brazil is most definitely a destination blessed. All along its Northeast coast you’ll find miles of pristine shoreline from Recife to Natal, and further north to Fortaleza. In this spirit, Fernando de Noronha, the archipelago located off the coast boasts one of Brazil’s best beaches and is a must for the serious scuba diver.
Adventure seekers looking for something off the beaten path, need not worry. Whether it’s exploring the lowland plains of the Pantanal by horseback or cruising deep into the Amazon jungle by dugout canoe, you are in for quite the adventure. Exotic flora and fauna is everywhere you turn… don’t forget your camera!
Whether it's one from the bucket list or the annual family getaway, this is bound to be a memorable experience!
