Discover Brazil

Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world, occupying nearly half of South America.

To the east, Brazil is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, while to the north, it is bordered by Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. The northwest is bordered by Colombia, the west by Bolivia and Peru, the south-west by Argentina and Paraguay and finally, to the south by Uruguay. In fact, Brazil shares a border with every country in South America except for Ecuador and Chile.

Experience an unforgettable holiday

What can you expect if you holiday in Brazil? Magnificent beaches, vast rainforests, music-fuelled carnivals and an astounding variety of natural and cultural wonders. Experience Rio de Janeiro with its samba and football-mad locals and the fabulously famous Copacabana Beach. To make the most of Brazil's stunning natural beauty, take a trip to the Iguazo Falls, where a total of 275 individual falls occupy an area more than two miles wide and 80 metres high, making them wider than Victoria, higher than Niagara and more beautiful than both. Brazil’s vast size, welcoming atmosphere and world class sights makes it a superb choice for a South American holiday.

Other recommended destinations:

For active holidays, exploring mainland rainforests and discovering protected species - with the added option of taking a break on the beach before heading home, we recommend Costa Rica.


Copacabana Beach is the largest beach in Rio de Janeiro and is arguably the most famous in the world. Situated just off the foot of Pão de Açucar (Sugarloaf Mountain), there is nowhere better in Brazil to unwind in style. Brilliant for photos and with a tremendous atmosphere, the beach was made famous by its nightclubs, casinos and hotels in the 1950s. Copacabana Beach is a joy to behold and is dominated by luxury hotel resorts, outdoor restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Further south, the beach scene near São Paulo can be just as inviting as Rio's – if a little harder to get to. Litoral Norte is a local favourite, with the gorgeous azure seas melting into the powdery white sand.


Since Brazil has so many beautiful beaches on its eastern shoreline, visitors to the country will be spoilt for choice. Whether it’s São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or a luxury resort further south, the average visitor will have a stunning beach life whilst on holiday. Some of the lesser known favourites include Fernando de Noronha, which is a stunning archipelago 350km from north-east coast of Brazil. Porto de Galinhas is another popular tourist destination that has become famous for its amazing coastal reefs, bright-water beaches and piscinas naturais - known by us as natural pools.

Things to Do

Naturally there will be an abundance of beach activities on any holiday to Brazil and these can range from leisurely sunbathing and dipping in the sea for a gentle splash. Those more active are well catered for too, and with kayaking, sailing, windsurfing and water skiing on offer throughout the year, you'll be spoilt for choice. Most visitors contact their own hotel to arrange these type of activities privately.
