Are you dreaming of a relaxing holiday in a tropical environment where you wake up to the sound of the sea and spend your day on white sand beaches in the shade of lush forests? Then, our 5-day itinerary to discover Rio de Janeiro and some of Brazil's best beaches is what you are looking for. Starting in Rio de Janeiro, known as the 'marvelous city' by locals, you will be amazed by the spectacular scenery, the beautiful beaches and the green mountains towering over one of the most beautiful urban views in the world. The iconic Sugarloaf moutain and the Corcovado peak, made famous by the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer, will be some of the impressive stops in the Carioca city. Further south along the coast you will sail to the natural reserve of Ilha Grande (the big island) where white sand beaches meet the Atlantic forest, a rainforest unique to Brazil. With no cars, no ATMs, intermittent internet access, limited cellphone network and power, the 75 sq mile island (193 km2) is a little piece of paradise. Spend the next two days relaxing on its white sand beaches, take time to snorkel and discover the abundant sea life, sail the calm turquoise waters and hike the tropical rainforest.
