Covering half of the continent of South America, Brazil is a land of staggering natural beauty and colours, where the carnival spirit reaches each and every corner. From the pristine Amazon jungle and Iguassu falls, and their unique fascinating wildlife, to vibrant colonial towns and the dazzling city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is a truly hypnotic nation of heady Afro-Caribbean rhythms, sensual samba, exotic flora and fauna, caipirinhas, beautiful beaches and passionate people. There are many fabulous properties here, ranging from luxury boutique hotels to romantic beach hideaways. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Brazil:
- Visit the remote island of Fernando de Neronha, one of the most secluded within the archipelago, allowing only 500 visitors a day. Whilst here, be sure to try the Bahian speciality, fish moqueca.
- For glitz and glamour, stay by the legendary Copacabana beach. Make sure you time your visit during Rio’s world famous carnival, an event that cannot be missed.
- Explore the beautiful wetlands in the Pantanal region, home to more than 600 species of bird. Stay in one of our lodges set within a working ranch, perfect to get a glimpse of ranch-life whilst exploring the surrounding natural beauty.
