If you are planning a journey to Brazil, take a look at the list of things to do there that Destination Luxury has come up with to enhance your travel experience.

Try out local delicacies

Brazil has some of the most enviable markets in the world and can be found nationwide. Similarly the produce they boast is drawn from across the country in a display of Brazil’s unspeakable natural abundance. In particular Sao Paulo’s Mercado Municipal holds some real delights.

Get a cultural insight

Take in a show at the stunning Theatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro. The beautiful belle époque exterior and lavish décor elsewhere are as enchanting as the séances that take place inside.

Marvel at Capoeira Dancers

Sporting their famous loose white trousers and bare torsos, the Capoeira dancers are something to behold. Join them in their entrancing martial arts influenced dance.

Explore the Amazon river

Take a boat ride like no other along the world’s largest river, the Amazon. The river is the life and soul of Brazil, pumping 209,000 cubic meters of water per second into its plains feeding a varied and vibrant wildlife.


Taste a typical Brazilian meat grill. The Churrascarias will not disappoint with its fine selection of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, duck and some rarer cuts of meat. In Brazil it is always barbecue season!

Go out in Rio

The famed Rio nightlife will not disappoint. A heady mix of infectious Brazilian rhythms pump out from nightclubs while the city’s youth sip on exotic cocktails at lively and colourful bars.

Visit the national park

Enjoy trekking the myriad of mesas, river beaches, waterfalls and grottos of Chapada Diamantina national park.

Sail in jangadas

The coastline north of Salvador provides plenty of opportunity for sailing in traditional jangadas from which the shore and preceding mountains of Brazil are even more impressive.

And, of course, get lost to the salsa beat at the Carnival

A trip to Brazil would not be complete without a visit to the world famous carnival. A wild release of colours, music, pomp and celebration combine to make Brazil’s most important festival.
