Brazil is a country best known for samba, carnivals, football and beaches, but there’s so much more to this country than meets the eye. But behind its endless palm-fringed coastline lies a huge variety of scenery from steaming tropical rainforests to the sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards.

Although there's plenty of exotic wildlife on display it’s the people of Brazil who give this country its unique identity. Amazonian Indians, Portuguese colonists, African, European and Japanese communities all co-exist independently yet fuse together into a rich medley of cultures. And while Brazil is a country of extremes, today it has a roller-coaster emergent economy, including independent businesses and stunning artisan crafts, as well as world-renowned art, architecture, music and dance.

While you take the time to soak in the magic of the tropical rainforests and sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards on an unforgettable holiday in Brazil, we take care of the rest.

There's a comprehensive network of roads and air routes, giving you more time to explore the beaches, forests, cities and hidden gems on your Brazil holiday. Many attractions have been developed sensitively for tourism; others left in their natural state, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds as you travel on and off the beaten track. Plus, with a huge range of accommodation and a relaxed and friendly welcome everywhere you go, you will feel at home every night – wherever you choose to lay your head.

At Journey Latin America we have a superb selection of Brazil holidays to suit everyone, whether you’re a solo traveller, searching for the perfect family holiday, or would like to join a group tour.

Our insider tips for Brazil


Laura Rendell-Dunn

Make time for a leisurely late afternoon stroll along the promenade of Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach. After work, cariocas head to the beach to hang out with friends, play with their kids, kick a ball around or have a bite to eat and a drink. Join in the carnivalesque atmosphere over a deliciously fresh coconut water, ice-cold beer or mouth watering fresh fruit juice in the world’s most beautiful and exuberant city!

It’s hard to fathom the scale of the mighty Iguazú Falls, a vast complex of frothing cascades fringed by tropical rainforest. The view from the Brazilian side gives the best panoramic view but the Argentine side is where you get the closest to the thunderous Devils' Throat. Both are a must, not to mention the boat trip to the base of the falls, an exhilarating experience that offers a unique perspective of these magnificent falls!

The beautiful wetlands of the Pantanal are home to an astonishing variety of birds, reptiles and mammals – this is the place to spot wildlife in Brazil. Successful conservation initiatives have earned the Pantanal the reputation as the best place in the Americas for Jaguar sightings. If photographing this beautiful but elusive cat in the wild is high on your bucket list go between July and October..and we can let you know how to make it happen!

What our experts say

I have visited every one of Brazil's States except one - Acre, which borders Bolivia. I'll have to go back for that one! Seriously though, don't try to visit too much in Brazil in one visit, you won't do it justice. Your priorities will be dictated by your interests, but I would say highlights not to be missed (over several trips) are: an Amazon cruise on the Tucano alongside a few days in the wildlife rich Pantanal; a visit to Iguazú Falls and the far south mountains, canyons and beaches by hire car;  Rio de Janeiro combined with the colonial towns of Ouro Preto and the beaches of the emerald coast, and a tour of the northeast including Salvador and the interior tablelands of Chapada Diamantina.
