Foreign Travel Advice

There is a corner of Brazil that is forgotten by all but the most knowledgeable travellers. In the top right of Brazil; we travel from Salvador to Belem and along the Amazon River. This wonderful journey allows you to unlock all the hidden gems of the area and to do so slowly, so that you really get to grips with the region. We will spend three days exploring the stunning lagoons and dunes of Lencois Maranhenses National Park and then have a couple of nights to chill on the beautiful beaches of Jericoacoara. We will explore the cobbled streets of the Sao Luis, one of Brazil's lesser known UNESCO world heritage sites and visit Belem, the most important port on the Amazon, with its great markets and museums. This is the city that became the gateway to the Amazon and the interior. But for most the highlight of this journey is the incomparable city of Salvador de Bahia with its amazing zest for life.

A very easy trip, with a laid back pace, with plenty of beach time. Lovely off the beaten track visits. There are some long day's drives but enough good breaks to make this a relaxed trip. Beautiful campsites, small Pousadas and a couple of great hotels.
