Brazil Luxury Holidays
Brazil is a mesmerising nation, a cultural melting pot that has established an array of traditions throughout its kaleidoscope of contrasting landscapes.
The largest country in South America, it is famed for the Amazon rainforest which include Iguaçu falls, vibrant colonial towns and the alluring city of Rio de Janeiro, with its swathes of fabulous beaches. People-watching at Copacabana Beach, with its volleyball players and copoeira dancers is a must, along with browsing the market stalls and shops of Ipanema.
Rio de Janeiro itself truly comes alive at night with its Latin flare being epitomised in jazz music and salsa dancing, especially during its famous annual Rio Carnival.
Time difference: Brazil has four time zones, however the majority of areas visited fall into one which is GMT -3 hours

Brazil's seasons are opposite to those in the UK, but can be visited year round as the majority of the country falls between the equator and the tropic of Capricorn, giving it a tropical climate. Peak season is between December and March.
