Brazil conjures up may fascinating images but this luxury Brazil vacation is something different. The colonial ventures between 1500 and 1815 laid their mark upon the development of Brazil as the only Portuguese speaking nation in Latin America. The trade of sugar cane, gold and other precious metals brought great wealth to the region and that was reified in the construction of ornate Baroque churches and colonial mansions. This tour takes you deep inside colonial Brazil to Salvador in the North East and its heartland of cobble lined Pelourinho. A fascinating city with African roots fused with samba dance that are showcased in their world-famous Bahian Carnival each year, attracting 2.5 million visitors. Next port of call is along the Atlantic Costa Verde to Paraty overlooking the stupendous Bay of Ilha Grande with its colonial facades, tropical forests, mountains, and waterfalls as a veritable mini paradise. The grand finale is to Ouro Preto an untouched colonial masterpiece nestled along the graceful Serra do Espinhaco Mountains. This luxury Brazil vacation will leave you spiritually richer and enamored by Brazil’s people and the allure of their treasured past.
Discover the rich colonial history of Brazil and venture to some of the prettiest villages in the country. Leave with a new perspective on an old land…

Salvador is an all-year-round destination. High-season starts a week before Christmas and goes through until April. This is when many Brazilians take vacations, so planning with plenty of anticipation is a good idea. For cooler and quieter months, consider traveling July – September. Paraty and Ilha Grande are also suitable destinations throughout the year. If you are looking to enjoy the beaches, then December – March are the warmest months, but these are also some of the wettest months too. It is a similar story with Ouro Preto. The warmer and wetter months are from December – April, with a more temperate climate later in the year from May – September.
