List of regions

Costa Verde

Costa Verde - the Green Coast - stretches from Mangaratibe, just south of Rio de Janeiro, to São Sebastião in São Paulo state. The steep, rainforest-clad Serra do Mar mountains rise up dramatically from the emerald sea, pristine sandy beaches and sleepy coastal towns and villages of the Costa Verde.

Sao Paulo

São Paulo is not just Brazil's largest city, it's also the most-populated city in the southern hemisphere. For some visitors, heaving and heady São Paulo is the ugly sister of Rio de Janeiro.

Ilha Grande

Ilha Grande is a small, sparkling island off the Costa Verde. It's easily reached by ferry from the mainland port of Angra dos Reis and is regarded as one of southeast Brazil's most majestic islands - largely undisturbed and topographically spectacular.

Angra dos Reis

Angra dos Reis is situated on a scenic bay on the Costa Verde, to the west of Rio de Janeiro. For many, Angra dos Reis is the gateway to the Green Coast, which stretches southwest of here.

Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro - the ‘City of Marvels' - is one of the world's most iconic travel destinations, full of energy and colour. This seductive Brazilian city is known for its favelas, beach lifestyle, flamboyant Carnaval held in the Sambódromo and a picturesque setting between rainforest-clad mountains …

Minas Gerais

The state of Minas Gerais - ‘General Mines' - was a source of great wealth for the Portuguese imperialists, with gold and other precious metals found in plentiful supply in the forested hills that characterise much of this part of South Eastern Brazil. Pretty colonial towns such as Ouro Preto, Tira…

Búzios

Búzios and its beaches are an ideal place to relax after time in Rio de Janeiro, which is relatively close in Brazilian terms, a hundred miles or so. But while Rio is famous for chaotic charm, Búzios is all about chilled out charm, a place for a restorative beach holiday.
