Spanning almost half of South America, Brazil is full of contrasting landscapes and has a unique culture due to its European and African influences. The marvellous Rio de Janeiro is one of the liveliest and most beautiful cities in the world with breath-taking views from Sugarloaf Mountain. Ipanema and Copacabana beaches may be on everyone's fantasy list, but there are many others along the coastline that are well worth a visit during your holiday in Brazil. Discover the amazing lengthy white-sand coastline, meet friendly and diverse people and enjoy fantastic local foods. Try a traditional sailboat and visit coral reefs at Maceió, relax on fine beaches at Praia Pipa and view massive sand dunes at Canoa Quebrada.
Further fun awaits you at the culturally extravagant Salvador, Brazil’s first capital. This UNESCO-listed city is an amalgam of beating drums, carnival celebrations, golden churches, colonial-era buildings, and capoeira classes where you can perfect those famous dance-fight moves. A stunning coastline lies outside the city where beaches include the serene Praia do Forte, the trendy Trancoso, and the pristine Morro de São Paulo. Also enchanting is the colonial town of Paraty with its wonderfully secluded beaches. Inland you can experience the gem mining city of Ouro Preto, take in the power of the vast Iguaçu Falls, and take an amazing Amazon River ferry cruise from the coast into the heart of the Amazon Jungle. The vast Pantanal wetlands offer the chance to see an amazing array of wildlife including hundreds of bird species and even the world’s largest rodent, the capybara.
Take a boat trip to Fernando de Noronha. This stunning and unspoiled archipelago of 21 volcanic islands is lush and verdant, rolling into crystal blue waters that are warm and clear, with visibility up to 50 metres. Hop from Sancho Bay and Pig Bay and see for yourself which is more beautiful, then get your snorkelling or diving gear and head for Praia da Atalaia to see a remarkably diverse array of marine life.
The highlight of any Brazil adventure is the dynamic and world famous Rio Carnival, the world’s largest street party. Join in the local street parades or party the night away at the fabulous Sambadrome parades, and make your memories last forever with cheap holiday packages to Brazil.
Brazilian cuisine features an enticing blend of European, African and influences from South America. Despite regional variations, the staple since native times has been root vegetables like cassava and yam, and you’ll still see these widely used in Brazilian cooking today. Make sure you try feijoada, the national dish - it’s a heartily flavoured black bean stew with pork and beef, cooked on a low heat in a traditional clay pot. It’s usually served with rice and accompanying greens, as well as slices of orange, which help to cut through the richness of the stew. Brazilians traditionally gather for brunch on Saturdays, so look out for a local restaurant where you can eat feijoada, talk football with the locals, and wash it all down with a Caipirinha or two.
Brazil has a whole host of beaches to relax on, dances to learn, cities to visit, street foods to try and jungles to experience – it's time to get exploring!
