Travel to Brazil / Brazil Vacation Rentals

Hmmm…Brazil…what to visit first? The jungle…maybe the beaches…or perhaps Carnival? If you're looking for some culture, Brazil vacation rentals is your answer!

Brazil Carnival

You won’t find many celebrations around the world as intriguing as the Brazilian Carnival. Stemming from the Roman and Greek rites of spring, each city actually has its own version of Carnival, based on the local culture. You can expect a major abundance of music and dance, and plenty of costumes. The main music types can vary from the samba in Rio de Janeiro, to Frevo, Maracatu, and more in Recife and Olinda. Be ready to test your party endurance; these intense festivities last for at least four days, with some celebrations spanning a week and the two weekends surrounding. Don a mask and celebrate Carnival! For many people, a vacation in Brazil means many late, exciting nights out on the town!

Vacation Spots in Brazil

You can’t miss the jungle in the North region of Brazil; the Amazon rainforest happens to be the biggest biological reserve on the globe, so the flora and fauna sightings are wonderful, especially on a river cruise. The Amazon River Basin experiences a very warm and humid climate, seeming to permeate the air. Experience the walk in Manaus to the intersection of the two rivers Solimõles and Negro. Discover more about the Amazon through museums located in Manaus. Belém has a famous market called the Ver-o-peso Market, where indigenous arts and crafts may be purchased.
