Rio De Janeiro is set between the mountains and the sea and is the second largest city in Brazil. It has stunning tropical landscape,is full of vibrant colours with a laid back beach vibe. It is also home to one of the biggest Carnival parties in the world! I was lucky enough to experience it on the last stop of my south american trip…..
Paraty is a colonial town on Brazil’s Costa Verde between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, first settled by the Portuguese with cobbled streets and buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th century. Paraty is a little slice of heaven and definitely needs to be on your list of places to visit if you are going to Brazil!
My first stop in Brazil was the amazing city of São Paulo, which is the largest city in Brazil and also South America with a population of 12 million people! It is an incredible city that is bursting with life and activity. Some areas are not all pretty looking and there is a lot of street art but it has an exciting feel to it and the people are so friendly that it is impossible not to love it!I fell in love with it anyway!
