Getting Around Brazil

Brazil is a huge country and therefore distances are great. Whether it’s your first time or not, you will visit more than one destinations and domestic flights will be the most convenient and often cheaper way of travelling around.

Most internal flights will be between 1 and 2 hours, with Manaus – the gateway to the Amazon – being one of the longest flights with 3 hours duration from both Rio and Sao Paulo.

We do offer public buses in some destinations but only when this is absolutely the only option and travelling will not be more than 3 or 4 hours. Otherwise land transfers will by private transfers and in some areas can be up to 5 or 6 hours. We use reputable companies with high standard vehicles with all amenities for your comfort and safety.

You can self-drive in Brazil and we do offer this in some areas, however, bear in mind that this requires a good sense of adventure as you might travel through areas where the level of spoken English is still quite basic so if are so inclined, we do suggest to either learn a few basic phrases in Portuguese or Spanish.

Rio de Janeiro
Brazil's Cidade Maravilhosa, lives up to its name. Set in a truly stunning setting, it is an unforgettable city that will get under your skin and its friendly people will capture your heart.
The North Pantanal
The Pantanal is the world's largest wetland and Brazil's best place to get close and personal to an immense array of flora and fauna, including the jaguar. If you are a nature lover, this is the place you want to be at least once in your life!
The South Pantanal
The southern part of the Pantanal is less visited than the northern counterpart but it offers the same opportunities to get in close contact with nature. If you want to see the anteater, head here for you chance to see this wonderful mammal.
Iguaçu, Falls
A true spectacle of nature, the Iguaçu, falls will take your breath away with their visual majesty and the sound of their roar!

Lovely colonial architecture, sandwiched between the blue Brazilian sea and the vibrant nature in the hills, Paraty in the Green Coast deserves a place as a must see destination in the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro.
