Why You Should Be Planning a Trip to Brazil

Why You Should Be Planning a Trip to Brazil
This massive country has so much to offer and has somehow managed to fly under the radar for far too long. Between sleeping in the Amazon canopy, working with local communities, trail running with monkeys, experiencing the Pantaneiro (cowboy) lifestyle in the wetlands, spelunking into caves, snorkeling in crystal clear rivers, admiring vibrant street art over a few cold cervejas with locals in the hip urban centers and trekking through ancient mountains and small villages lost in time, Brazil is one of our favorite destinations. Whether you travel to Brazil in search of adventures, wildlife or culture, there is a region to appeal to every interest!

6 Must-have Items for 6 of South America’s Ultimate Adventures

Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon

Enchanted by Adventure in the Brazilian Amazon
Falling asleep to claps of thunder and waking up to howler monkeys calling in the canopy outside my window this August were just fragments of the beautiful dream I stepped into while spending almost 3 weeks in the Brazilian Amazon . Each morning, as the sun slowly reared its mighty head over the lush horizon, I woke up to run along miles of trails that wound in and out of the exotic jungle. Running before the intense heat of midday meant comingling with families of squirrel monkeys, dodging sleepy caimans and watching majestic white herons take flight. During the day we ascended ropes into the dense canopy to gain a new perspective from the tops of ancient Samauma trees and swam with powerful pink river dolphins. We paddled in the quiet off shooting rivers and lakes as the sun started to set and watched as the Milky Way painted the sky....
