We think pretty much everyone who comes back secretly wishes they were Brazilian... or at least married to one.

More than ten of the team here at Original Travel have been to Brazil in the last five years alone, exploring everywhere from the deserted beaches of Natal province to the incomparable rainforests.
The conclusion? Brazil is an absolutely brilliant honeymoon destination, and there’s plenty to explore in this, the world’s fifth largest country - 4,500 miles of coastline and islands for starters.
Inland, the Amazon and the Pantanal wetlands are the best places to view Brazil’s abundant wildlife, while the urban jungles range from historic colonial villages to the huge, vibrant metropolises of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
So, where to start? A few days in Rio is a minimum requirement, and will give you the best introduction to the thoroughly sensual rhythm of the country. It’s basically an extremely sexy destination, and we can recommend the best of the bunch of sophisticated new boutique hotels.
After Rio? That’s where our expertise really kicks in as the difficulty is choosing what not to do unless you’re planning a month long ‘moon. Rest assured that wherever you end up this will make for a suitably memorable honeymoon.
