As South America’s largest country, there are so many things to do and see in Brazil! We encourage travelers to go beyond well-known activities and destinations. After all, with a third of the world’s rainforests, a vast coastline of serene beaches (unknown and practically untouched!), colorful flora and fauna, picturesque colonial towns, and incredible metropoles, there is an abundance waiting to be explored. For nature enthusiasts looking at Brazil vacation packages, consider a scenic train ride through the Atlantic Rainforest, a cruise along the Amazon River, or an exploration of Rio’s Tijuca Rainforest - an easy escape from the city center. For art lovers, head to Belo Horizonte for Inhotim, a large open-air modern art museum, and then stop by some of architect Oscar Niemeyer’s famous works in Sao Paulo. If historically picturesque colonial towns are more to your taste, visit Ouro Preto, Tiradentes, and Congonhas in the Brazilian countryside. There are plenty of things to do in the cities and regions of Brazil - now is the time to start exploring.

The Colonial Gems & Historic Cities in Brazil is a favorite trip to Brazil as it takes visitors beyond the well-known destinations to culturally rich colonial towns in the countryside of Minas Gerais state as well as the sprawling open-air art museum of Inhotim near Belo Horizonte. This vibrant Brazil vacation package includes five UNESCO World Heritage sites, plus jagged green landscapes, historic baroque churches, white-sand beaches, and charming rural towns lined with cobblestoned streets.
Encompassing nearly half of the South American continent, combining Portuguese-speaking Brazil with one or more of the nine Spanish-speaking countries is a great idea and brings the diversity of the region to life. Our Brazil and Argentina tours are extremely popular, as travelers can seamlessly connect the two countries via Iguazu Falls which straddles the two countries, such as on our Tango, Samba, and Waterfalls tour. For those looking to see three of South America’s most iconic destinations, embark on one of our Brazil and Peru tours, where guests can see both the wonders of Rio de Janeiro, thunderous Iguassu Falls and the jaw-dropping beauty of Machu Picchu. This is also a perfect blend of contrasting lands – one full of tropical exuberance and the other a mountainous, semi-arid climate.
With a team of expert Travel Consultants and an experienced operational department on the ground in Rio de Janeiro, our Brazil vacations are crafted with the heart and soul of the country.

Brazil Travel FAQ’s
Thinking about a Brazil trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests. Visit our Brazil Info page for in-depth Brazil travel tips.
What is the best time to visit Brazil?
Keep in mind that while Brazil is notably a warm destination, it is also a vast country with various regions which may lead to slightly different climates and seasons. However, generally speaking, Brazil’s winter (June – August) is off-season and typically results in fewer crowds in major cities and towns, with less humidity and thus bluer skies. The summer (December – March) is coined as the high-season, featuring lively beaches, events, and numerous cultural festivities, like the famous Carnival. As for Brazil’s other popular regions, including the Amazon, the seasons can have little impact, offering unique tours and experiences throughout the year.

What is the best Brazil Tour?
Think nature, wildlife, adventure, arts, architecture, and history. Brazil has it all. Regardless of your interests, there is a perfect tour for you! Talk to a Brazil travel specialist and let them know what your preferences are. Travel consultants who specialize only in South America go beyond customizing a trip, they will find and recommend what fits you best. They’ll talk with you about past travel experiences, your travel style, and then go from there.
How much does it cost to travel to Brazil?
Flights from the U.S. typically range between 500 and 900 USD, depending on the season, with European flights approximately 50% more. Apart from flights, Brazil is a backpacker’s paradise and also a destination for luxury. So, again, your overall cost really depends on what you can budget. It is recommended to stay a minimum of two to three weeks in Brazil as the country is enormous and you’ve already spent good money on the airfare alone.
We also recommend combining Brazil with other countries in South America. A popular combination includes Rio, Iguaçu Falls, and Peru. Another popular option is Rio, Iguazu Falls, and Argentina. Those two-country combinations will only set you back – traveling in good comfort – around 3000 to 4000 USD plus airfare.
How safe is flying in Brazil?
Do I need vaccinations for Brazil?
Yes, all those you need at home and a few more to stay healthy in Brazil, especially a Yellow Fever vaccination. Without the certificate of Yellow Fever vaccination, you will not be allowed to travel on to some other countries. If you are over the age of 60, or you cannot have the vaccination for other reason, it is likely your doctor will be able to issue you with an exception. Then you bring that exemption instead of the certificate along with you. For visits to the Amazon, malaria prophylaxis is highly recommended as well.
Your travel consultants can steer you into the right direction, but ultimately only your doctor using current information from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control can decide. In case anything happens to you, you will (as a foreigner) always be taken to the nearest private hospital. All private hospitals deliver comparable care to your hospitals at home. In case of tropical diseases, they are much better prepared!
