Experience the heady atmosphere of Brazilian life on a fabulous family holiday to the land of Samba.

Brazil is that very varied country lying in the northeast of South America. It’s famous for its hot sandy beaches, exotic samba dancing and its carnivals. And there are lots of each to enjoy. This is a country with a party atmosphere, and where holidays are all about having as much fun as you can, so it’s an ideal place to bring the family for an escape away.
Brazil is home to such exotic places as the Amazon rainforest and river, and the stunning beaches of Rio. Its capital city, Brasilia, is a fantastic environment, with architecturally beautiful buildings, and wonderful open spaces. The most fun you can have in Brazil is at Carnaval time in February. The streets open up to parades and floating, with samba dancing loud music and an intense party atmosphere. In some cities the crowd are encouraged to join in with the parades, and in others, they are just for watching, but either way they are wonderful to experience.
The best time to visit Brazil is dependent upon what you want to do while you’re there. Because Brazil is in the Southern Hemisphere, their summer months are December to March. This is the perfect time to visit for some fun thanks to the Christmas celebrations and the February Carvanal, but they are also the hottest months, and temperatures can reach well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Their winter is usually around June to September, and the heat is significantly cooler then. You would probably experience more rain in their winter season, but this tends to be shorter showers which disappear pretty quickly.


Things to do in Brazil with Children

Visitors to Rio de Janeiro simply cannot leave without paying a visit to the spectacular statue of Christ the Redeemer, and what better way to view this colossal structure than by helicopter tour? The whole family will be delighted with the chance to fly over the streets of this famous party town and take in the breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean and the starting mountain ranges.

Kids will love the chance to head into the Tihuca Rainforest on a Jeep safari tour. This unique rainforest was replanted in the late 1800’s within Rio itself. Lookout for colourful animals and exotic plants on the four hour drive. Children will love watching out for the monkey’s playing overhead. The tour includes hotel pickup and an English speaking guide to accompany you. There’s no age limit given for this tour.

Families will love the chance to experience the exotic wilderness of the Mangue Seco, an isolated beachland on the South Atlantic Ocean. Getting there is an adventure, and you’ll drive from your hotel until the roads run out before setting off across the water in traditional canoes. Once on the pristine sands of this quiet beach, you can enjoy relaxing in the solitude or revving it up on a dune buggy ride. There is no age limit, but remember that you’ll be out in the heat of the sun so protective clothing for young kids is vital.

For children aged seven years and older who want a little excitement on their trip, there is the Macuco Safari and Rafting Expedition at Iguassu Falls which is guaranteed fun for the whole family.
On this excursion you’ll sample a jeeo tour, a trek through the jungle and, finally, a fantastic rafting expedition down the Iguassu River. You’ll even pass through a gentle waterfall to cool you down.
