Brazil is so much fun. With good food, drink and a friendly atmosphere, the country has a charm that will stay with you and make you want to return at the first opportunity.

Florianopolis in the south has a great combination of beaches and lakes, with great places all throughout the island of Santa Caterina to walk and relax. A long bus journey away is the hard to get to, but thoroughly spectacular Iguazu Falls. These waterfalls are best viewed from the Argentinian side, but the range of accomodation in Brazil is probably a little nicer.

Rio de Janiero is a superlative busting city, which has now overtaken Prague and Amsterdam as #1 Lepki city in the world! The combination of the lively city, Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, effortless samba, rodizio churrascaria barbequed meat, caiparinhas, boat rides and great views from Sugar Loaf mountain and Cristo Redentor make this a must see city.

It's hard to top a city like that, but Salvador nearly does that, with music at the heart of this intriguing, hot, sultry city. Again the beaches and views are world class, and as long as you are relativley sensible, the city is much safer than some guide books suggest!

in the far north east, there is sunshine and variety with great beaches all up the coast, Boipeba and Morere being the pick of the bunch.
