Brazil exudes an intoxicating rhythm everywhere you go--from the dance beats of Gay Pride in São Paulo, to the hidden paradise of Lençois Maranhense National Park in the north, to the captivating cultures and flavors of Recife and Salvador, to the dazzling mountains and beaches of Rio. Brazil is the largest country in Latin America, and as home to the “lungs of the planet” (the Amazon Rainforest) its biodiversity is unrivaled. The fun-loving Brazilians are equally diverse and this exciting adventure is designed to connect you with the spirit, traditions, culinary arts, and spectacles of these vibrant peoples.

Start in São Paulo, where you have the option to revel at one of the largest Gay Pride celebrations in the world. Fly north to dive into the unexpected pleasures of white sand dunes with fresh water lagoons at a unique National Park near São Luis. Continue to Recife, the capital of Pernambuco State, to experience its charming old town, its cuisine and nightlife, plus the brightly-colorful UNESCO Heritage town of Olinda just to its north.

We conclude the main tour at Salvador de Bahia, where Afro-Brazilian culture, stunning architecture, picturesque views, delicious food and lively music and nightlife make it a top choice for South American travelers. Thrill to a demonstration of Afro-percussion during a city tour, savor lunch at the home of a local chef after accompanying him to the market to learn about selecting the freshest ingredients and preparing the dishes, enjoy stunning cultural performances, take a sunset cruise and sample the city’s vibrant nightlife. You can choose to continue to the Queen of all Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro, to ascend the stunning peaks of Sugar Loaf and Corcovado, see examples of fabulous Carnival costumes, and experience nightlife at one of the best venues for live Samba and Bossa Nova music. We offer you Brazilian Brio at its finest!
