  • The most amazing Brazilian travel destinations you’ve (probably) never heard of



    One way to characterize Brazil is big. The largest country in South America, the fifth largest in the world, and largely unknown to tourists except for its world-famous destinations like Rio de Janeiro, Florianopolis, Recife or Sao Paolo.

    Of course, there are many other amazing destinations in Brazil which are underrated to the point of being mostly unknown to foreigners, and which deserve a little more love. Next time you’re in Brazil, stray off the beaten path and check out some o the most amazing Brazilian travel destinations you’ve (probably) never heard of.

    Igarassu, Pernambuco

    The northeast part of Brazil (Nordeste) is the most vibrant, fascinating and friendly part of the country, with several famous destinations, but even more places that are not much talked about. Igarassu, for example, is a lovely colonial town, home to the oldest church in Brazil, as well as an old Franciscan monastery that has the largest collection of baroque art in the country.

    The Nordeste has several interesting national parks, but Serra da Capivara National Park is unique because it has the oldest prehistoric rock paintings ever found in the Americas.

    The park is also home to some plant species that can’t be found anywhere else, and several stunning rock formations, the beautiful Canyon of Hope, and scores of archaeological sites.

    Ilha do Mel, Parana

    This hourglass shaped island has no roads, the accommodation options consist in pousadas, small rustic hotels, and there’s a set number of visitors that are allowed on the island. But if you’re lucky enough to get there, you can spend your time hiking, trekking, paragliding and fishing, or you can visit the Conchas Lighthouse, Grutas das Encantadas (a stunning grotto) or the Portuguese Fort.

    Pirenopolis, Goias

    Pirenopolis is one of the best preserved colonial towns in Brazil, and although it is blatantly beautiful, most of the stone lined streets are the fruit of slave labor. However, you cannot help but be drawn in by the historic old buildings, the interesting museums, the quaint churches and the bewitching Abade Waterfall.

    Sao Gabriel da Cachoeira, Amazonas

    The small town of Sao Gabriel da Cachoeira is an urban island in the middle of the thick Amazonian jungle, and most of its inhabitants are native Brazilians.

    The town is pretty and subject to many local legends, so if you know some Portuguese, it’s worth asking the locals for stories. Besides, Sao Gabriel is surrounded by dozens of cool attractions, like the beaches of Negro River that emerge September through January, historical sites and Indigenous villages along the Upper Negro River.
