Brazil: Suggested Itinerary

The world's largest country in the tropics

Days 1-3: Start by spending some days in Rio de Janeiro, an excellent choice for anyone who has never been to Brazil. Your suggested itinerary for Brazil in Rio de Janeiro can include a trip to the beach, outdoor sporting fun, views of the mountains, and great nightlife. Finding a hotel in Rio is fairly simple, and you can have a great couple of days touring the city and relaxing.

Days 4-6: For the next couple of days, make sure you get time to do a little more exploring. It should be a crime to come to Brazil and not see the Amazon River and the Amazon rainforest. If you have time, you will also enjoy a trip to Iguassu Falls or Iguacu Falls. If wildlife is your niche, you can also make a trip to Pantanal, where some of the world’s most amazing birds and other wildlife can be viewed at the wildlife reserve. Of course spend plenty of time in the Amazon. Whether you take a guided tour or brave a short hike on your own, the Amazon is unparalleled anywhere else in the world.

Days 7-10: If you have weeks or more for your trip to Brazil, you will want to see the whole country. Every part of Brazil is unique and generally amazing. Be sure to see the major cities in the country, including Belem, Manaus, Salvador and Sao Paulo, many of which are famous throughout the world.
