What is the perfect Brazilian Vacation Package? you may be wondering to yourself. You’ve heard about some of the amazing destinations and activities that Brazil has to offer, but you have to figure out how to cram it all into your vacation time.
Everything that travelers usually want to pack into a vacation can be found in Brazil. From shopping in São Paulo, unique African-influenced gourmet experiences in Salvador, adventures around the Iguassu Falls, sunbathing on beautiful beaches, or taking a classic Amazon river cruise, Brazil has a unique experience for all types of travelers.
Plan Your Perfect Brazilian Vacation
Spend some time researching the highlights of Brazil, and then mix and match destinations so that you can get a sense of the diversity of Brazil. Remember, Brazil is a huge country (the size of the continental USA!), so make sure to factor in flight and bus times between destinations. For example, many people think that they can take a quick side trip to the Amazon Rainforest from Rio de Janeiro, but in fact, a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Manaus is the best option, and from Manaus, you may have to take a several hour boat ride to your Amazon jungle lodge.
Natural Highlights of Brazil
The Pantanal Wetlands
The Beaches of Brazil
Now to the beach, the essential element of any perfect Brazilian Vacation Package. On the top of your list should be Ilha Grande. An island within the tropical Atlantic Rainforest just off the Rio de Janeiro coast. No cars, no big hotels, only small hidden beaches and charming pousadas, or bed & breakfast places, from the simple to the sophisticated. From Rio de Janeiro, you can reach it in 2 hours’ drive and 1 1/2 half hours cruise across the bay. Relax on the beach, choose to trek along the island’s coast, or just hop on a schooner and enjoy views of the island and the bay.
