Brazil is a country of extremes. From rhythm filled metropolis to verdant, cacophonic rainforests and long ribbons of sandy beach, this country is far more than the sum of its parts. Begin your discovery of Rio at the end of its eponymous Carnival, before sailing to Salvador de Bahia and its multitude of facets. Recife’s perfect beaches provide welcome respite as does Fortaleza’s off the beaten track bohemian vibe. Three days at sea and a stop to Ile Royale complete your trip.
