Our Latin America specialists know how to create tailor-made
itineraries for your family holidays to Brazil, recommending the
best family-friendly accommodation and activities, and including
all our regular additional services, such as fast-track services at
the airport, fun packs for children aged 3-10 designed by the
famous children's party people Sharky & George, and best of
all, access to our clued-up local Concierges when you're in Brazil
to make any last minute plans. These services are brilliant at the
best of times, but completely invaluable when it comes to
travelling with children.
So where to visit in a country this huge? There are plenty of
contenders, but we'd recommend the following three as
non-negotiables for any family holidays to Brazil.
First and foremost, the incomparable
Rio de Janeiro and the lushly beautiful Costa Verde stretching
south of the city. The beaches are an obvious draw, but we can
arrange for other fun family activities such as beach volleyball,
samba or capoeira (a sort of part martial art, part dance)
classes for the children. Then there's the cable car to take up to
the Christ the Redeemer statue for amazing views of the city.
Meanwhile the verdant Costa Verde is home to several lovely
family-friendly properties from which to surf, kayak and enjoy boat
Next stop should be the Pantanal,
the largest wetlands in the tropics and somewhere your diminutive
David Attenboroughs can sharpen their wildlife spotting skills
while on the look out for caimans (like alligators), howler
monkeys, anteaters and above all, jaguars.
Finally, the Iguacu
Falls on the border between Brazil and neighbouring Argentina
are among the most impressive waterfalls in the world, and
guaranteed to have the children's jaws on the floor at the sheer
scale and deafening roar of the falls, which are best viewed from a
panoramic viewing platform on the Brazilian side. There's much much
more we could recommend for fab family holidays to Brazil (we
haven't even mentioned
the Amazon), but this should keep you busy for at least a
fortnight or more!
