Overview & Highlights

Stay in the top-of-the-range first class Belmond properties to visit Brazil’s top two highlights: Rio de Janeiro and the Iguazú Falls. Continue along the coast to the stylish little beach resort Buzios.

  • Full-day tour with Corcovado Mountain and Tijuca forest, and cable car up Sugar Loaf Mountain
  • Guided tour of the Argentine side of Iguazú Falls

This luxurious taste of Brazil starts Rio, a city of fun-loving people, music on every street corner and football on every beach - all with a glorious mountain backdrop. We've selected some of Brazil's finest hotels, with near perfect locations. Belmond Copacabana Palace (formerly known as Orient Express), faces the blue green rollers of the Atlantic Ocean breaking onto the golden sands of Copacabana, the heart of this beach-loving city. 

At Iguazú Falls, you will step out of your room at Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas to the thunderous roar of water crashing over lofty granite cliffs fringed by tropical rainforest. It's the only property right o n the edge of the falls themselves: you can avoid the crowds in the early morning and evening.. Finally at the upmarket, popular beach retreat of Búzios, unwind at a top quality boutique property overlooking the ocean.
