Dramatic Iguacu spills over its sheer drop where Argentina and Brazil meet tiny Paraguay. Jet boats pirouette at the base of the Falls, but for the best view, take to the skies in a helicopter and see the 300 or so different drops cascade majestically into the river below.
1h50m to Rio de Janeiro
6-10,Rio De Janeiro
Iconic and recognisable the world over, Rio de Janeiro’s bay front setting in the shadow of Sugar Loaf Mountain is a destination to be found on many a bucket list. Its beaches evoke a colourful past: Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon all attract tourists by the thousand. Visit during the riotous carnival to experience this playful city in full-on party mode.
1h30m to Trancoso
Relax on fifteen miles of unspoilt white sand at the beaches of Trancoso, one of Brazil’s hidden gems. In this sleepy fishing village characterised by rustic adobe cottages, you’ll have to adapt to the languid pace of life. At sunset, the village and its visitors dine together in the many excellent restaurants that line the resort’s central square.
