Brazil is a country best known for samba, carnivals, football and beaches, but there’s so much more to this country than meets the eye. Behind its endless palm-fringed coastline lies an idyllic country ready for couples to explore and you’ll be creating a lifetime of memories in no time.

Although there's plenty of exotic wildlife on display it’s the people who give this country its unique identity. Amazonian indians, Portuguese colonists, African, European and Japanese communities all both co-exist independently and fuse into a rich medley of cultures.. And while Brazil is a country of extremes, today it has a roller-coaster emergent economy including independent businesses and stunning artisan crafts, as well as world-renowned art, architecture, music and dance.

While you take the time to soak in the magic of the tropical rainforests and sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards, we take care of the rest.

There's a comprehensive network of roads and air routes, giving you and your partner more time to explore the beaches, forests, cities and hidden gems on your Brazilian adventure. Many attractions have been developed sensitively for tourism; others left in their natural state, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds as the two of you travel on and off the beaten track. Plus, with a huge range of accommodation and a relaxed and friendly welcome everywhere you go, you will feel at home every night – wherever you choose to lay your head..

Our insider tips for Brazil


Laura Rendell-Dunn

Fresh coconut water drink in hand, stroll along the promenade of Copacabana Beach in the world’s most beautiful and exuberant city of Rio de Janeiro. On Sunday mornings the main oceanfront avenue closes to traffic and a market springs up.

It is hard to imagine the scale of the mighty Iguazú Falls, the continent’s top natural attraction, a vast complex of frothing cascades fringed by tropical rainforest. The view from the Brazilian side gives the best panoramic view of the full extent of these magnificent falls, whilst the Argentine side is where you get the closest to the thunderous Devils' Throat. Both are a must.

Glide silently down the River Amazon and its tributaries in a canoe and become enthralled not just by the sights but the sounds of the jungle. You will often hear the Amazonian fauna before you spot it, so be sure to look out for the vibrant plumage high up in the rainforest canopy when you hear the distinctive squawking of a pair of Macaws in search of a roost.

Watch an impromptu capoeira dance in Salvador, the atmospheric capital of the state of Bahia and of Afro-Brazilian culture. You will also likely witness small groups practicing their acrobatic moves to the rhythmic twang of the single-string Berimbau at sunset on any one of the many golden white beaches that the area is renowned for.

What our experts say

I have visited every one of Brazil's States except one - Acre, which borders Bolivia. I'll have to go back for that one! Seriously though, don't try to visit too much in Brazil in one visit, you won't do it justice. Your priorities will be dictated by your interests, but I would say highlights not to be missed (over several trips) are: an Amazon cruise on the Tucano alongside a few days in the wildlife rich Pantanal; a visit to Iguazú Falls and the far south mountains, canyons and beaches by hire car;  Rio de Janeiro combined with the colonial towns of Ouro Preto and the beaches of the emerald coast, and a tour of the northeast including Salvador and the interior tablelands of Chapada Diamantina.
