More than ten of the travel team here have been to Brazil in the last five years alone, exploring everywhere from the deserted beaches of Natal province to the incomparable rainforests in the Amazon. We, therefore, have the inside track on all the best places to suggest for your luxury holiday.
Rio is a must, but choosing what to do next is where our expertise really kicks in as the difficulty is filtering out what not to do, unless you've got a spare month or two. Rest assured that wherever you end up this will be one of the most memorable luxury holidays you ever take.
There's plenty more to explore throughout the world's fifth largest country - for example 4,500 miles of coastline teeming with tropical islands and home to ever more sophisticated new boutique hotels opening all the time. One thing we do guarantee - we think everyone who visits secretly wishes they were Brazilian.
