Your Travellers Guide to
Visiting Brazil

Brazil is a mesmerizing country rich in culture, history and natural beauty covering an area larger than the whole Europe and with the fifth largest economy in the world. There is a fascinating wealth of experiences from vibrant cities to picturesque beaches and stunning natural landscapes, set within a unique blend of African and Portuguese colonial heritage, expressed in paintings, the cuisine and a "joy de vivre" in music, dancing and Carnival, while working to create a modern lifestyle.

Vibrant Cities

Discover exotic cities such as Rio de Janeiro, magnificently set amongst massive granite peaks and Atlantic forest and explore the beaches Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon where friendly locals relax and skillfully play footvolley. Visit the atmospheric city of Salvador de Bahia, a city with beautiful colonial architecture, a wealth of African heritage and passion for great food and music, and home to the famous Olodum drummers.

Palm-fringed Beaches

Brazil's coastline has miles of magnificent palm-fringed beaches and crystal clear waters, such as Praia do Forte with its sleepy colonial fishing village. There are remote islands such as the glorious Fernando de Noronha, surrounded by idyllic beaches far from the tourist trail. Or visit the Costa Verde and charming colonial town of Paraty with its white washed buildings and cobbled streets, surrounded by lush forests and white sandy beaches dotted along the coastline.  

The Amazon

The Amazon basin is the largest and most species-rich rainforest in the world, fed by the mighty Amazon river. There are jungle lodges and riverboat cruises which allow you to leave behind the modern world and embrace the natural surroundings. For bird-watchers and nature-lovers the tropical wetlands of the Pantanal are home to many beautiful and unique species.

Stunning Landscapes

To the south there are the green hilly regions like Sao Paulo and large plains in the Northeast and Rio Grande home to the Brazilian gaucho. Here you will also find the thundering torrents of Iguaçu Falls, a stunning horseshoe of 275 individual waterfalls straddling the Brazilian and Argentinean border.  

When to Visit

The climate of Brazil varies considerably from the tropics in the North and the more temperate South. Temperatures in the North are consistently high and do not vary much, whereas in the South there is a much more noticeable difference between summer (November - March) and winter (June - August). See our climate chart.

The sun in Brazil can be very strong, especially in summer. Make sure you take adequate precautions against sunburn by taking a hat and sun protection with a high SPF.

Crime in Brazil has been well publicised, but it need not stop you from travelling. Use common sense to avoid making yourself a target, stay away from unlit areas at night, and ask your guide if there is anywhere you should avoid. A flashy wardrobe or one that is too casual can mark you as a tourist.  As much as possible, avoid the appearance of affluence.

Pack your bag leaving space for any purchases made en route. This is not only for your own comfort, but it is far easier to keep track of one bag than a collection of smaller ones and thus reduce the chance of theft.

Comfortable trainers or walking shoes/boots with ankle support and water protection if it is wet under foot.

A fresh set of clothes for each day is not necessary as laundry services are available at most of the hotels en route.

Deal with variable temperatures, hot and cold, by taking light clothing and wearing it in LAYERS. You can then add layers of clothing when it is cold or remove items of clothing when it is warmer.
