Brazil

Brazil has a little something for everyone!

The birth place of Samba and famed for its legendary Carnival scene, Rio is a vibrant and colourful mix of flavours, cultures and sound. February sees the crowds flock to the streets, celebrations, dancing and street parties draw in a whopping 2 million revellers. Listen to live Samba, dance the night away or buy tickets to view or even participate in the parade!

And if that alone didn't capture your imagination, picture yourself on the top of Mount Corcovado posing besides the impressive and iconic Christ the Redeemer; take in the views whilst cursing in cable car across to Sugarloaf Mountain or stroll through the streets of a hustling favela. 

For those on the adventurous side, the Rain Forest in the North will transport you to another world. See how the indigenous people live, sleep under the stars or fish for Parana! 

Marvel at the spectacular Iguacu Falls, the largest waterfall system in the World or better still take a speed boat into them!

And if all that seems too strenuous, why not kick back and relax on the World Famous Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches. People watch from the white sandy beaches, teaming with vendors catering for your every need; the perfect place to watch the sun go down.
