Next year the Olympics will hit Brazil and the global attention is going to make the country an even bigger tourist attraction than it is already!

Brazil is the biggest country in the Latin American region and the world's fifth largest, both by geographical area and by population. It has a coastline of 7,491 km and borders all the other South American countries except Ecuador and Chile.

So why not be smart and beat the crowds and discover all that Brazil has to offer this summer by enjoying an Olympic-sized adventure with Families Worldwide?

‘Brazil in a Nutshell’ includes all the highlights that this diverse holiday destination has to offer which is home to vast, dense rainforest, exciting cities, welcoming people and a constant samba beat!

The adventure commences by seeing the iconic sights of Rio de Janeiro before heading by jeep to Corcovado Mountain – with the world famous Christ the Redeemer statue – the famous neighbourhood of Santa Teresa, followed by a visit to Tijuca Forest before enjoying an urban bike tour.

Back in Rio there will be plenty of time to discover the famous beaches such as Copacabana – and playing football with the locals, plus a chance to see the football stadiums before attending a lively samba show during the evening.

Next up on the busy itinerary is a flight to see the incredible Iguassu Falls (which at 82 metres are a third higher than Niagara) before taking a boat ride to see the falls from the Argentine side.

Other highlights of the holiday include the colonial town of Paraty, sea kayaking to Sapeca Island, snorkelling, exploring a mangrove forest and a jeep ride to see the waterfalls in the Bocaina Hills.

The holiday can also be extended with a visit to the famous Pantanal rainforest to spot wildlife including the elusive jaguar.

The holiday departs on 18, 28 July and 15 August and costs from £2,449 per child (10+) and £2,649 per adult.

This includes flights, all transportation, eight nights’ B&B, activities and a tour leader.

‘Land only’ prices are available for those who prefer to make their own flight arrangements.
