2nd Brazil Visit - Ideas please

Jump to last reply

Having been to Brazil 6 years ago where we had a marvellous time visiting Rio, Recife, Foz do Iguacu (probably the best, most majestic sight ever and I stayed ON Machu Picchu) and other pretty well known must-do's, my husband and I are returning mid July to 1st week August this year, and want some tips on places to go that offer stunning environs, preferably abundant wildlife and something a little different from what the tourist hoards may be doing.

We start in Sao Carlos, due to an A.I. conference my husband is at, we need to go to visit an English friend in Florianopolis in the middle, but otherwise Brazil is our oyster...

We have heard that the crystal waters of Bonito are worth visiting and maybe the Pantanal, or even Bahia.... suggestions would be EXTREMELY welcome, please.

Also if anyone knows a way to get a reliable, safe but not too costly plane ticket, that would be a real bonus!

Many thanks indeed.
