Brazil, with its Carnival, its luxuriant jungle, its hot sand beaches... The quintessential dream country. The welcoming accent of its beautiful mixed-race women, its tropical climate and the colours of its cocktails all conspire to make you leave your troubles behind. Though Brazil is a well-developed country, it has preserved all of its festive and musical culture.
It is a vast country; it would be best to focus on Amazonia and the North-East or even the big cities and beaches of the South, if you don't want to end up spending your holidays on a plane. Lucky for you, we have the solution: Evaneos Travel experts are here to share their great deals and secrets with you. Follow the guide!
A bubbling southern supercity, São Paulois the economic heart of the country. For rest and relaxation, it would be better to go to Rio de Janeiro, where a week will not suffice to enjoy sugarloaf, the Corcovado, Santa Teresa neighbourhood and the mythical beaches of Copacana and Ipanema. Similarly, Ilha Grande is chock-full of idyllic beaches where you can go diving.
Whereas the culture in other South American countries is Andean, Brazil distinguishes itself by being more Caribbean, and Portuguese is the spoken language. Still on the coast, Salvador is the ideal destination to fully enjoy the carnival atmopshere. It's a good compromise for those who desire greater authenticity without having to go as far Amazonia. Otherwise, set course for the North, around Belem, still on the coast; and to Manaus, in the heart of Amazonia. Here, you will rub shoulders with a different Brazil: more primitive, less Westernised.
Take advantage of your trip to Brazil to see the Foz do Iguaçu waterfalls or the wetlands of Pantanal, inland.
