Get active in Brazil! Learn how to windsurf and kite surf in Jericoacoara, a resort town ringed by fresh water lagoons and perfectly sandy beaches or make your way to Fernando de Noronha, a designated maritime national park made up of 21 islands, ideal for snorkelling, diving, surfing, sailing and dolphin spotting. In buzzing Rio de Janeiro take the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain for the best views over the city, go hang gliding over São Conrado beach or party the nights away at Rio Carnival over five days of street parties, music, costumes and parades.
Brazilian cuisine is melting pot of influences from Portugal to Japan to Africa. The country doesn’t have a ‘national’ dish but feijoada, a rich stew of beans, beef and pork, comes pretty close. Barbecuing is also a big thing and churrascarias – dedicated BBQ restaurants serving meat on spit, cooked over coals and seasoned simply with salt – can be found all over. Take to the streets and you’ll come across deep fried pastry morsels (pastel de queijo), croquettes filled with chicken and cheese and pão de queijos, bread rolls with cheese baked in the middle. And don’t forget to try Brazil’s most famous drink, a caipirinha.
Flying into Rio de Janeiro, you’ll easily spot the city’s most iconic landmark – Christ the Redeemer (or Cristo Redentor in Portuguese); this 38 metre high statue sits on the top of Corcovado Mountain, arms outstretched over 28 metres wide. Feel the spray of the Iguassu Falls as your visit this chain of over 250 waterfalls bordering Brazil and Argentina and go bird watching and wildlife spotting – including the chance to see the elusive jaguar – in the Amazon Rainforest or the Panatal wetlands. Or marvel at the incredible sand dunes and rainwater lagoons of Lencois Maranhenses National Park.
