Honeymoon Secrets: Brazil

Honeymoon Secrets: Brazil

Samba, sunsets, wildlife, waterfalls and cracking cocktails...Tempted by a honeymoon in Brazil? Simon from Bespoke Brazil shares his Honeymoon Secrets

Honeymoon Secret #1


Find South America's best wildlife in the Pantanal

Shh… When most people think of wildlife in Brazil they immediately think of the Amazon. While this is a great destination, if you want to see big mammals, including jaguars, head to the Pantanal.

Tell me more… The Pantanal is the world's largest floodplain and the best place to see wildlife in South America. It offers some of the best birdlife in the world, as well as great opportunities to see big cats such as jaguars and ocelots, capybaras, giant anteaters and a great deal more. Cosy accommodation is offered on fazendas (farms) where you can experience real life mixed with relaxation in beautiful settings.

Honeymoon Secret #2


Watch the sunset with the locals in Jericoacoara

Shh… Follow the locals to the top of the dune at one of Brazil's best beach destinations and watch the sunset.

Tell me more… Known locally as Jeri, this small beach town is about a five-hour drive to the west of Fortaleza on Brazil's north coast. The town is only accessible by 4WD and has therefore remained relatively isolated from mass tourism. While you're there, pick up a caipirinha from one of the many beach stalls selling cocktails and wander up to the top of the large sand dune, a magical place to watch the sunset.

Get your dancing shoes on at Rio Scenarium

Shh… Not such a secret to those from Rio but this fabulous music venue in Lapa is a must for any visitor in the Marvellous City.

Tell me more… Set over three floors, in a beautiful old colonial building in the heart of Rio's party district, Rio Scenarium is an essential place to witness some of the city's best live samba. The building itself could keep you entertained for a while with a variety of curiosities hanging from its wall but it's the music and the food that the club are famous for. Weekends are the best time to go, but make sure you get there before 10pm if you want a table. 

Honeymoon Secret #4

Fernando Do NoronhaDiving off the paradise islands of Fernando de Noronha

Shh… This incredible archipelago in the Atlantic ocean is one of the world's top diving destinations with a set of paradise islands to rival anywhere in the world.

Tell me more… Located 340km from the Brazilian mainland and only accessible by boat or a flight from Recife or Natal, this former penal colony is now one of the hottest honeymoon destinations on earth. While the surrounding ocean offers some of the world's best scuba diving, visitor numbers are restricted, making it ideal for an active or relaxed honeymoon. 

Honeymoon Secret #5

Das _Cataratas _with _falls_Stay inside Iguassu Falls National Park

Shh… Iguassu Falls is one of South America's biggest highlights, and the most impressive waterfalls in the world. So if you are going to visit, stay inside the park.

Tell me more… The only hotel within the national park is Hotel Das Cataratas, the perfect place to spoil yourself on honeymoon. Being inside the park means that you can arrive before the tourists do and leave well after they have headed home. This gives you the privacy and intimacy which you are no doubt looking for on a special holiday.
