Exploring Brazil

São Paulo and Southern Brazil

São Paulo is often overlooked by tourists and this is somewhat understandable. It is one of the world’s biggest metropolis and this can put off most holidaymakers to Brazil. However, there are some good reasons to visit. It is a very innovative city and offers plenty of opportunities to art lovers. And if you are a foodie, then a break in Sampa (as the locals call it), is a must as here you will find some of the top 50 best restaurants in the world. 

And if you are still not convinced, bear in mind that south of São Paulo there are some of the best hidden gems in Brazil. Places with pristine nature, amazing sandy beaches and world renowned luxury resorts. Places like the Serra Geral mountain range in Santa Caterina state will leave you in awe with its majestic beauty. You will relax and bathe in one of the world’s most beautiful bay in Praia da Rosa, surrounded by hills and lush Atlantic forest. And exclusive resorts like Ponta dos Ganchos will pamper and spoil you. 

Hotels in São Paulo can be quite corporate but there are some boutique properties just outside the city where you can find a corner of peace within easy reach of the big metropolis. And in southern Brazil, cosy accommodation, mountain lodges and charming beachfront pousadas are aplenty as well as super luxury hotels. 

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 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!

Once a tranquil fishermen's village, Buzios is now an elegant resort with plenty of idyllic beaches and beautiful boutique hotels, perfect for a relaxing end to any Brazil holiday.
Paraty
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.
