Brazil. My first stop of my big South American adventure. And what a good start! I really loved everything about Brazil. It ticked all my boxes from sun, nice beaches to black beans, buffets and tall, dark, good looking guys! General good vibes all round. So here’s my 5 top reasons why everyone should visit beautiful Brazil. If you’re thinking about it, do it. I’ll definitely be visiting again! Happy reading!
- The People
As soon as we landed, we felt good vibes. Every person that we met was friendly, smiley and super happy to help! Though not many people spoke English, they were still eager to help us with directions, carrying our bags, and being our tour guides. I’m not sure if it’s the sun, sea or Caipirinha’s but the Brazilian people are some of the nicest and happiest that I’ve met! They were also some of the best looking I’ve ever seen. Literally every other man and woman were good looking, tanned, physically fit and full of charm. Why wouldn’t anyone want to be surrounded by that?!
2. Stunning Natural Scenery
Brazil has so much to offer and despite only being there for a few weeks and only visiting a tiny part of the country, the landscapes and scenery that I did see were amazing. With its jungles, nice beaches, mountains, hiking, islands and huge cities, Brazil literally has everything!
3. The Sights
Along with all the natural scenes, Brazil has the hotspots of touristy sights which were pretty banging too. Christ the Redeemer, Sugarloaf Mountain, Mountain top city views, Iguazu Falls, Paraty Historical Town and so much more. There classic must do’s and perfect for the pics!
4. The Nightlife and Caipirinha’s
Not gonna lie, if I go a few more months without drinking a caipirinha, I won’t be sad, but they’ll forever remind me of Brazil and partying. Famous for being lively, carnivals and sexy samba dancing, Brazil was a good place for nightlife. Different to party places like Ibiza, Magaluf and even partying in Thailand, Lapa in Rio De Janeiro in particular was a new and fun experience. Unlike popular party destinations, Lapa was filled with locals and not catered for tourists. With people drinking, dancing and partying in the bars, clubs and all over the streets, Lapa was representative of the country and its people. Fun, lively, and full of culture and authenticity.
5. The Weather
Okay a bit of a boring one but think it’s worth a mention that although it’s their winter, the weather was perfect still. Currently in Argentina and I’m wearing every possible layer I can. I’m a walking Michelin man, it’s so cold. But Brazil was still sunny and warm in the day, so no matter what time of year you go, you’re pretty much guaranteed sun and blue skies! No wonder the people are so happy all the time!
