80 Senses: #19 - Island of Fernando de Noronha

The most fun you can have with your swimmers on...Brazil is about the trendiest travel destination on the planet right now, and with the World Cup (2014) and an Olympics (2016) due in the next five years this flamboyant South American country is only going to get more airtime, and more popular. As you'd imagine, there are plenty of highlights in a place this huge, but after lengthy discussion the immensely influential 80 Senses Selection Committee have cherry-picked one particular highlight, and we bet our bottom Brazilian real you haven't heard of it.

We trust your judgement completely and once again you arranged one of the most amazing holidays we've ever been on.
