Rio de Janeiro boasts world famous beaches, the epic carnival in February and iconic views. It calls itself the ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’ (Marvellous City) and it’s hard not to agree.
Follow the samba drums north to sizzling Salvador, a city infused with music and colour and the gateway to hundreds of miles of golden sands.
Iguassu roughly translated means ‘Big Water’ and there can scarcely be a more appropriate description for the 275 separate waterfalls that form a decisive border between Brazil and Argentina in an epic rainforest setting. Such is the power and intensity of the falls that approaching the famous Devils Throat along the wooden boardwalk is like walking the plank over the ends of the earth.
The Amazon basin spreads out over nine countries and has the most diverse and delicate ecosystem on the planet. A few days in a jungle lodge or on a river boat is an enthralling experience The less well known, but no less impressive, Pantanal Wetlands is a vast area renowned for outstanding wildlife encounters in a pristine wilderness.

Top Tips From Our Experts
The Friday night street party in Rios's Lapa district is an absolute must! It's sure to be a fun filled night of getting to know the friendly locals and dancing along to live samba beats
Take a few days to chill out on the stunning Ilha Grande. Make sure to get out and exlpore the island, taking a moderate trek from Abraao to the amazing Lopes Mendes Beach is a great little day out.
If visiting Iguassu Falls, consider upgrading to the fabulous Belmond Das Cataratas hotel. This historic property overlooks the Brazilian side of the falls, and gives unrivalled access to the site after hours. There's something very special about taking in one of the great natural wonders of the world with just a few squirrels for company....
