The largest country in South America and the home to some of the biggest cities on Earth, Brazil is known the world over for its stunning natural scenery, its magical metropolises and the irresistible charm of its people. This 11-day tour will lead you all over this diverse country, from the rainforests of the Amazon to the glittering lights and glamor of Rio, and it will introduce you to a country that is soon to celebrate its coming-out party to the world.
Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro, one of the largest cities in the country and known throughout the world for its beautiful scenery, cosmopolitan environments and laid-back lifestyle, where you’ll climb Mount Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountain to catch glamorous glimpses of the metropolis stretching endlessly below you. Experience the majesty of nature at the ceaseless cascades at Iguazu Falls before setting out for one of the world’s largest wetlands and the breathtaking beauty of Pantanal. Spend three dream-making nights on board a luxury sailing vessel as your cruise the puissant Amazon, and spend your nights searching for some of the region’s most reclusive—and noteworthy—wildlife.
You’ll be swept up by the salsa along the streets of Rio, the birds that fill the air of the Pantanal, and the roaring that fills your ears as you walk the cataracts of Iguazu; you’ll be struck dumb by a sunrise over the Amazon or a sunset descending on Rio de Janeiro Harbor; and you’ll never forget the sounds of a jaguar in the depths of the rainforest or the pulse of the city late on a weekend. The beaches and floodplains, hills and rivers, the songs and dances and sounds from the native animals all speak to you, beckoning for you to visit: there’s never been a better time to listen to them.
Not only is Sao Paulo the largest city in Brazil, but it is also one of the largest in the world according to population. Located in southeastern Brazil, Sao Paulo is known for its skyscrapers, gastronomy and robust culture scene. It is home to many ethnic groups from all over the globe including the largest Japanese community outside of Japan. Although Sao Paulo is known for its concrete jungle, it is also contains a large number of public parks and even portions of the Atlantic rainforest.
A historic Old City, beautiful beaches, lively culture and one of the world’s biggest Carnival celebrations all fashion Salvador into one of the best places to visit in Brazil. One of the oldest cities in the Americas, Salvador is Brazil’s third largest city and the capital of the Bahia state. Situated on the coast of the Bay of All Saints, Salvador offers fantastic beaches that are ideal for sunbathing, swimming and surfing. Some of the most popular include Porto de Barra, Flamengo and Stella Maris.
The capital of the Amazonas state in northwestern Brazil, Manaus is an important tourist destination because it serves as a gateway to the Amazon rainforest. As a result of the region’s flourishing rubber industry during the early 20th century, Manaus today is one of Brazil’s largest cities, featuring distinguished landmarks like the Amazonas Opera House, and the Rio Negro Palace. Another significant sight is the Meeting of the Waters, which is a natural phenomenon where the two rivers of Negro and Solimões run side by side for more than three miles without fully mixing.
Brazil is an all year round destination made up of several climatic extremes, none of which are severe enough to deter travel to any part of the country at any given time. Across the country, the warmest months are November to March - perfect for enjoying New Year and Carnival celebrations. The northeastern coast experiences some rain in June and July, but usually only in the form of afternoon showers. We recommend the Pantanal's driest months between April and October, but like in the Amazon, its wetter months offer distinct wildlife spotting opportunities and experiences.
Brazil has the top notch accommodation on offer for travellers. Eco-hostels, charming hotels, guesthouses and bungalows make the accommodation options as varied as Brazil itself.
Brazil has a long list of luxury accommodations that take advantage of its picturesque shores. The country fully entered the all-inclusive scene, with few but outstanding all-inclusive resorts in some of the country's most attractive locations.
Brazilian cuisine is the set of cooking practices and traditions of Brazil, and is characterized by African, Amerindian, Asian (mostly japanese) and European influences. It varies greatly by region, reflecting the country's mix of native and immigrant populations, and its continental size as well. This has created a national cuisine marked by the preservation of regional differences
In Rio, Sao Paulo, Espirito Santo and Minas Gerais, the Brazilian Feijoada (a black bean and meat stew rooted, recipe) is popular especially as a Wednesday or Saturday lunch. Also consumed frequently is picadinho (literally, diced meat) or rice and beans.
In Rio de Janeiro, besides the feijoada, a popular plate is any variation of grilled bovine fillet, rice and beans, farofa and French fries, commonly called File a Osvaldo Aranha. Seafood is very popular in coastal areas, as is roasted chicken (galeto). The strong Portuguese heritage also endowed the city with a taste for bolinhos de bacalhau (fried cod balls), being one of the most common street foods there.
Brazil is a beautiful country with a fun, exciting culture and friendly people. It's also big and expensive and therefore can feel a bit overwhelming to the first-time visitor. The following tips for what to know before you go will help you get ready for your trip to Brazil.
Visa and Passport
You may need a visa to travel to Brazil. American tourists, for example, need to apply in advance and pay $160 for a tourist visa, which is usually valid for 5 years. These visas take time to process and therefore need to be requested well in advance of your trip. However, there are many countries whose citizens do not need a business and tourist visa to visit Brazil.
Before you leave, be sure to let your bank know that you'll be traveling to Brazil, Because most ATMs in Brazil don’t accept the normal type of debit and credit cards.
Overall, Brazil is a safe country for travel, but it's a good idea to be aware of some basic safety tips before your trip.
Regarding the safety of water and food, this varies from one area to another, so it's a good idea to do some research about the regions you plan to visit. In São Paulo, for example, the water is usually completely safe to drink, and there is no need to be careful with eating raw vegetables or fruits. However, in other areas of the country, there may be risk of illness from contaminated water, meaning that you'll need to avoid ice and uncooked vegetables, peel fresh fruits, and drink bottled water.
Be cautious with your personal items and use common sense for safety. Avoid walking in sketchy areas at night, don't walk around alone if you can avoid it, don't wear flashy jewelry or carry expensive camera equipment, and never fight back if you are robbed.
In Brazil, the sequence of naming begins with the first name then the middle name or names followed by the mother’s last name, then the father’s last name.
Hugging and backslapping are common greetings among Brazilian friends. Women generally kiss each other, starting with the left and alternating cheeks
Brazil is predominantly a Roman Catholic country with an estimated 65% of the population affiliated to the religion. Language is one of the strongest elements of Brazil's national unity with Portuguese the spoken language of nearly 100 percent of the population. The only exceptions are some members of Amerindian groups and pockets of immigrants (primarily from Japan and South Korea), who have not yet learned Portuguese.
