A land of endless tropical beaches, glorious natural landscapes, rich wildlife, exquisite cuisine and a vibrant cultural heritage, Brazil makes a magnificent honeymoon destination that promises a plethora of exciting adventures and romantic getaways. Here are just some of the things you can opt to do in beautiful Brazil.
Visit stunning beaches
Spectacular beaches surround Brazil’s coastlines. Rio de Janeiro is legendary for summer hotspots such as Ipanema and Copacabana but for your honeymoon, you might want to take a detour to the island paradise of Fernando de Noronha, 330 miles off the northeast coast. The islands are a mecca for snorkelers and divers, plunging into its warm waters all year round. Indulge in these island pursuits or just soak in the sun while enjoying the view with a caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail) in hand.
Stop by the famous attractions
Visit the Amazon River, the second longest river in the world and the largest by volume. Take a ferry and explore the world’s largest rainforest containing one-third of all the living species on earth.
Include Iguazu Falls in your itinerary to witness one of the great natural wonders of the world. Situated between Brazil and Argentina, the mighty waterfall is a sight to behold. At the highest point, the Iguazu Falls is nearly as high as the Flatiron Building in New York City.
Christ the Redeemer, the popular landmark in Rio de Janeiro, stands 120 feet tall and is perched on top of Corcovado Mountain. Snap your mandatory tourist photo by the famous statue that symbolises Rio and the warm hospitality of the Brazilian people.
Indulge in tasty treats
Brazil is also a destination for epicurean adventures. Savoury or sweet, you’ll find delectable dishes to make your stay even more memorable. Hop on a stool in one of the botecos (bars) and snack on empadinha (baked or deep fried pastries stuffed with spiced pork, beef, chicken, ham, cheese and potatoes). If you crave something heartier, feast on a bowl of Brazil’s national dish – feijoada (bean stew with smoked meats). To end your meal, dig into quindim (sweet custard with coconut flakes).
