Brazil is an amazing country to visit for its vast rainforests and exciting urban centres. Brightsun Travel has put together a range of cheap holidays to Brazil that will take you to Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, and into Brazil’s gorgeous natural landscapes. Starting in the beautiful coastal city of Rio de Janeiro, you could simply spend your days lazing on Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Or, making the most of the city’s mountainous surroundings, you could hike, or take a cable car, to the top of the Pão de Açúcar or Corcovado Mountain and be rewarded with spectacular views of the city. Take a short ferry ride from the city and you could reach Niteroí, and escape to the incredible Itacoatiara beach. Maybe you’d like to fly into Sao Paulo, and take advantage of the city’s amazing nightlife, arts and culinary scene? Here you could spend your time at the beautiful Pinacoteca museum, exploring the galleries along Oscar Freire Street, or simply head straight to the Museu de Arte de São Paulo and enjoy one of the most comprehensive art collections in Latin America. For food, one of the city’s best restaurants, D.O.M, is a place where you can taste food made from ingredients sourced directly from the Amazon.
But more than city breaks, Brazil has unforgettable natural landscapes that could take you on a holiday of a lifetime. First off you have the incredible Amazon rainforest, the largest tropical rainforest in the world. You could visit the Atlantic Forest Biosphere Reserve, or Mata Atlântica Biosphere Reserve (MABR), the largest forested biosphere reserve on earth, which extends for 3000 kilometres along the coast of Brazil. Here you can explore forests, meadows and mangroves that are home to almost 85% of threatened wildlife in Brazil. From Rio, you could visit the Serra dos Órgãos National Park in less than an hour’s drive, and hike to the top of ‘God’s finger’. And last but not least, nestled between Rio and Sao Paulo, is the Serra da Bocaina National Park, where you can spot a range of wildlife, including wild cats, bear and deer.
