Copacabana, Ilha Grande, Paraty, Rio de Janeiro

Highlights

  • Let loose and samba the night away in Rio de Janeiro – South America’s party capital. Arriving in this bustling metropolis is the perfect way to start your Brazilian adventure.
  • Party down with the locals in the streets of colonial Paraty, where Portugal meets Brazil, jungle meets sea and your adventure dials up a notch.
  • After seeing its virgin rainforests, blue lagoons and splendid beaches, you’d never imagine that Ilha Grande had such a treacherous pirate history. This is true natural beauty, Brazilian style.
  • You’ll have plenty of time to choose your own adventure at Ilha Grande with two full days on the island. So if hiking, boating, kayaking or lazing on a beach is your thing, we’ve got you covered.
  • With some of Brazil's biggest icons, including Christ the Redeemer, Ipanema Beach and Sugarloaf Mountain all at your fingertips, why not consider extending your stay in colourful Rio?

What travelers are saying

"We joined the Intrepid “Real Italy Food Tour” and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our tour guide, Micol, was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of good information. It seems Micol knew many of the staff of the venues we visited, including the pasta making class we attended. Our group of 11 travelers was extremely compatible, which greatly added to the fun and enjoyment."

What travelers are saying

"We returned from our 13-day East African Explorer trip two weeks ago. The trip fully met our expectations. Everything was well organized, accommodations and food were excellent, safari drives were great. Our driver/guide in Kenya, Gitonga (aka Anderson) was excellent and enthusiastic. Based on our experience I can confidently say we will book another trip with SITA in the near future."

Brazil Tour Selection Trips

  • It makes sense to take a tour or small-ship river cruise to Brazil. Distances are vast, natural areas like the Amazon and the Pantanal are remote, and the cities can be plagued with petty thefts – less likely to occur if you’re in a group.
  • If you plan to travel to Brazil for Carnaval or any special event, be sure to book your tour well in advance – a year or more, if possible.
  • If you can't find accomodation for Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, consider a tour that includes attending the Carnaval in Salvador, capital of the state of Bahia along the Atlantic north of Rio. The parade here isn't as well known, but still spectacular!
  • Similarly, Copacabana may be more famous, but the beaches of Jericoacoara, a fishing village north of Rio, are beautiful, less crowded, and known as windsurfing meccas.
  • Remember that Brazilians speak Portuguese, not Spanish like most of the rest of South America.
  • Even if you’re a vegetarian, there’s no need to skip a meal at one of Brazil’s famous churrascarias, where multiple courses of meat are served. These places are also know for their ample salad and vegetable courses, and of course the incredible desserts!

Best time to visit Brazil

The timing of your trip will largely depend on what you plan to do. It’s important to pay attention to the amount of rain, the temperature, and when the festivals are to ensure your expectations are met:

Touring the Amazon and Pantanal in Brazil

If you are planning an Amazon adventure, know that the rainy season runs from December to May. That’s all relative though, as heavy rains can occur all year round. To give yourself the best chance of not being stuck in a torrential downpour, plan your Amazon trip after the rainy season in May. June is the best time to see wildlife, as the river is at its highest but the driest season hasn’t arrived yet.

The same goes for the Pantanal. The rainy season is between February and April. It is best to avoid the time between February and March, when the rains are relentless. The Pantanal sees its hottest temperatures in the summer, December to February, and hotels and hostels often close due to the heat and the mosquitos. The dry season in the winter, May to September, is your best bet for wildlife sightings and comfortable weather.

Bahia and Northern Brazil

If you plan to visit one of the many charming cities in northern Brazil, you will be rewarded with tropical temperatures and humidity. The northern area of Brazil experiences temperatures that linger in the 80’s all year long. The ocean temperatures also stay at a comfortable swimming temperature year-round. The north does experience a rainy season from

Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo

These two cities have pleasant weather all year round. December to February are Brazil’s summer months, when temperatures are in the high 80’s and rain falls often. Even with the precipitation, rain storms tend to come and go quickly, so sunny days are plentiful. February is also the month of Carnival, and Rio is the top destination to celebrate.

Carnival season is incredibly expensive in Rio. Hotels rates can triple and vacancy can be limited. It is recommended that you book lodging a year in advance if you want to be a part of the biggest party in the world.

Spring and autumn in these cities are far more temperate and without the haze of the precipitous summer. Winter temps are still pleasant during the day but drop in the evening, so travelers may be surprised when they need a jacket.

How long should you plan for a tour in Brazil?

If you stick to one region of Brazil, it is totally possible to have an amazing tour in one week. You can take an Amazon River tour, or visit the city of Rio and venture from there to Iguazu Falls in just seven days. These tours do have a quick pace, so if you’re looking for a more in depth look at Brazil, plan for at least a ten day tour. If you want to include different regions in your tour, such as the Amazon and Rio, plan for a tour that is 10-14 days long to avoid feeling rushed
