The beaches here are fully functioning beaches that offer great opportunities for swimming, surfing and plenty of other beach sports. Fortaleza often falls under the radar but this a visit to this beautiful location will make wonder why it does get more attention.
Manaus, in the north west of Brazil is the gateway to the Amazon rainforest, this quiet location in Brazil is incredibly traditional and offers a hot and humid climate. One of the most interesting things to see in Manaus is the meeting of the waters, a strange phenomenon that sees the two rivers of Negro and Solimões run along side each other for 3 miles without touching. If you are planning on doing any kind of trip through the Amazon then Manaus is the best jumping off point. Despite being one of Brazil’s largest cities, much of Manaus has a town-like atmosphere that let’s you see a different side to Brazil than the beach locations offer.
