If you are thinking about going to Brazil, I think you are a very smart person. Brazil is an exciting country with plenty to see and do and a very warm people who love to receive and share with whomever is receptive enough to make friends with them.
I would start by Rio of course. Rio is a very big city and just like any other city
around the world, you have to be careful. Rio has many wonderful places that are
sure to take the breath away. Corcovado, Sugar Loaf, The Vista Chinesa, Tijuca
Forest and so on and so forth dự án rio vista. The beaches in Rio are an experience for the newcomer.
In Ipanema beach, every day when the sun goes down, everyone watches in silence and
finally clap in awe of the beauty of the scenery. The best place to go to the beach
in Rio depends on what kind of person you are.
If you are young and want to mingle and see interesting brazilian youth exuding their
charm and unbelievably beautiful bodies, go to Posto 9 in Ipanema, where they play
footvolley all day, the boys and girls are golden and there’s everything you could
possibly want on a beach day for you to enjoy. Vendors walking by selling everything
from popsicles to hammocks and sun glasses to shrimp cabobs. The service is nice.
Now, if you are a family and you are looking to really just enjoy the sun and beach
on a weekday (weekdays are much better at the beach in Rio), then I suggest you
try the Barra da Tijuca beach. It is so vast it never really seems to be that full
(except on Sundays when the so called ‘suburbanos’ are there). But even then it’s nice.
Personally, I like the Botanical Gardens on Sundays. It’s quiet and nice and you can
see a lot of very cool things, feed the fish and pelicans on the pond and rest
under a Pau Brasil tree. The beach is way too full to be nice on the weekends.
Or to take a nice hike up the many hidden waterfalls that make you forget entirely
that you are right in one of the biggest cities in the world. It feels more like
a tropical jungle.
If you have plenty of time to really get to know Brazil, like 3 or 4 weeks, I suggest
getting a Brazil pass, it’s a ticket that costs around $500 US and that it allows you
to travel by air to 5 major brazilian cities. My suggestion goes as follows:
Start with Rio because it’s the major hub but don’t spend too much time there.
Just enjoy the beauty of it for a few days, take a few of the escorted jeep tours
around the forests of Rio, visit Corcovado and Sugar Loaf, go to the beach and then
move on. Next stop, Salvador. This is one of the coolest places you are going to
be at in the world. It’s a mixture of New Orleans, Kenya, Jamaica and Paradise beaches,
all with the Brazilian “tempero” a seasoning that only in Brazil you will find.
