Where to go Backpacking in Brazil!
So what images are conjured at the thought of backpacking Brazil? A country of beautiful beaches and friendly people; of samba, bossa nova, and Rio carnival; the rain forests in the Amazon and of overwhelming nature. Find the real Brazil as you bus around the country with a backpack on!
Backpack Brazil, it´s easy! Just take your Green Toad Bus pass and discover the different regions of this beautiful country. Find out why Rio de Janeiro is one of the most popular destinations on earth for backpackers. The so called 'cidade maravilhosa' or 'marvelous city'- is located in the beautiful Guanabara bay on the Atlantic coast. Ipanema and Copacabana beach, the Sugar Loaf mountain, the Christ Redeemer and many more attractions await you in Rio.
Visit Sao Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world, and the most important commercial city in Brazil. You´ll love its varied and exciting cultural experiences. Immigrants brought to the city cuisine from all over the world, so don't forget to try the gastronomical treats on offer.
Between Rio and Sao Paulo lies Paraty, a picturesque village adorned by Portuguese colonial style architecture. It is well conserved with cobble-stone roads and colorful houses. Paraty is surrounded by mountains and incredible beaches and sits on a beautiful tropical bay, perfect for a day out on a wooden schooner under sail!
If you want to discover Brazil´s nature then you must get to Manaus. Located in the heart of the Amazon, it is a thriving city found in the middle of the jungle. Wealth came to the area through rubber production and its extravagant past can be witnessed in the enormous mansions, casino and an opera house which would look more at home in a city like Paris, if not for the Brazilian mosaic crowned on its dome. From Manaus you can visit the surrounding Amazon jungle and experience the beauty of its rain forests.
Another of Brazil's natural wonders lies in the Pantanal, the earth's largest inland wetland the size of France. Travel deep into this territory which harbors amazing wildlife and hearty cowboys. Pack your swimwear because not far from here is Bonito, located in the center of the country, a land blessed with unmatched caves, river systems and waterfalls.
If you want fun, great beaches and a fantastic nightlife, then you must go to Florianopolis. This fantastic peninsula has hundreds of nice beaches and offers many options for going out. And finally you shouldn't skip Foz do Iguacu and its unique waterfalls. Believe everything that you´ve heard about them: they´re awe inspiring and you´ll never forget the sheer mesmerizing power of the water.
Backpacking in Brazil is easy with your Green Toad Bus pass which allows greater freedom and security as you enjoy the many incredible places Brazil has to offer!
