1. Florianópolis: In our Brazil Tour Packages one of the top places to visit is the island of Florianópolis. Its one half is situated on the mainland and the other half on an island. ‘The Magic Island’ of Brazil is known for its open and uncluttered beaches like Praia dos Naufragados which can be only reached after a bit of hiking. Enjoy gorgeous views of pastel-hued sunsets at any one of the 60 beaches at Florianópolis.
Tourists can hike and explore the island to find lovely waterfalls and bright blue lagoons on its coast. You can stay at an authentic Brazillian beach house in the more northern part of the island, which is more touristy. If you want to surround yourself in nature, there are more quiet beaches in the South of Florianópolis.

2. Chapada Diamantina: Our Brazil Tour Packages take you into the wilderness of National Park Chapada Diamantina. The landscape is riddled with spectacular hidden treasures such as the Cachoeira da Fumaça, one of Brazil's gargantuan waterfalls of which turns into mist.
One of the most striking features of the region, however, are the two vast underground cavities known as Poço Encantado and Poço Azul. The water in the two pools is so pure that they seem to be empty, and the sunshine that enters gives the pool a startling electric blue shade.

5. Lençóis Maranhenses National Park: Actually, the word 'Lençóis' means bedsheets. This name instantly makes sense as you stand on the top of a sweeping white sand dune in Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. Lençóis, situated in northern Brazil, has a stunning view that will leave you gasping for breath.
The rain collects in the alleyways between the sand dunes, which leads to the desert becoming a place where the sand dunes vary in sight, with cerulean lagoons. Many different species of fish live in the lagoons, and one of them hibernates in the wet areas of the sand during the dry season, only to resurface when the lagoons revive.
