Wet. Wild. And wonderful.
Brazil dominates South America. It's the largest country. With the longest coastline. And the most geographical variety. From the warm beaches of Fortaleza, to the hot clubs in Rio, Brazil moves to a beat like no other. Pulsating. Enticing. Revealing. But above all, unforgettable.
Everyone knows Carnaval, but in Brazil, that's just scratching the surface. People travel here from all over the world for windsurfing at Cumbuco Beach. Dune buggy riding in Rio Grande de Norte. And whale watching in Bahia. To explore pre-Columbian villages, Colonial fortresses, and landscapes right out of science fiction. This is a country where you can do as much as you want today, and as little as you want tomorrow. And no one thinks twice about it as long as you're living it up.
You can't go wrong with Rio. From Ipanema to Christ the Redeemer, Rio is famous, and legendary. But with the help of VIVA Travel, you can expand your horizons and embark on adventures beyond what you thought possible. Unexpected and rewarding. A vacation that dominates all others.
