Our Thoughts

No group of people knows how to party better than the Brazilians. Dancing competes with soccer as the national sport. It's possible to combine all of these elements on the beach and the Brazilians will happily show how that's done.

For visitors, Brazil offers more South American highlights than any other on the continent.

Highlight: Sway on a hammock aboard a ship cruising down the Amazon. Take a jungle stop in a remote village. Dance at the Parantins festival, an Amazon River party that rivals Rio's Carnaval for fun.
