Cheap Holidays to Brazil

As a holiday destination Brazil offers a multitude of experiences from sipping a caipirinha on the white sand beaches to visiting historic colonial towns; soaking up the atmosphere in colourful cities alive with the rhythm of the samba or exploring the Amazonian rainforests.

A country of year round warm weather, world famous beaches and tourist attractions and, not least, the magnificent Carnivals.

How Hot?

Brazil is a vast country with around 90% in the tropical zone; though it's worth remembering that its location in the Southern Hemisphere makes its seasons the opposite of our own. Winter in Brazil lasts from June to August, and summer lasts from December to February. The hottest and driest area is in the Northeast where rainfall is scarce from May to November and temperatures can reach over 100 deg F.

Out and About

The attractions of Brazil have year round appeal and are as diverse as world class football, hiking trails through national parks and Amazonian rainforests, famous sandy beaches and the spectacular Rio carnivals.

The 2014 Fifa World Cup is being held in Brazil and we have a good choice of hotels in easy reach of the stadiums in the host cities of Brasilia, Belo Horizonte, Fortaleza, Rio de Janerio and Salvador.

The 2016 Olympics are also being held in Brazil, at Rio de Janerio and we have hotels to suit all budgets in the Barra Zone (Barra de Tijuca), the Copacabana Zone (Copacabana and Ipanema) and the Maracana Zone (Rio de Janerio).

The capital city of Brasilia is a masterpiece of design and modern architecture and, in contrast, the former capitals of Salvador and Rio de Janerio offer baroque architecture and historic attractions a plenty. The latter is also in close proximity to the famous sights of Corcovado and Sugarloaf Mountains, the Tijuca rainforests, Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach and Barra de Tijuca. Rio de Janerio and the surrounding resorts are of course the place to be for the extravagant New Year celebrations and Rio Carnival.
