Brazil group tours for solo travelers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to Brazil
Why travel solo to Brazil?
Brazil: home to the wildlife-rich Amazon Rainforest, wild stretches of sandy Atlantic coastline and vibrant party-loving cities, known the world over for their carnivals and fun-first way of life. Throw in ice-cold caipirinhas and you’ve got yourself a dream group solo travel destination.
So, where to begin? Well, of course, Rio de Janeiro is a city in a class of its own; where pristine shores and rugged mountains blend seamlessly into surely one of the world’s most scenic cityscapes, all beneath the watchful eye of Christ the Redeemer. Cariocas love to look good – and, sure enough, their home city does, too…
Further afield, Brazil’s 4,600-mile coastline is home to smart Unesco-listed towns such as Paraty, with its characterful cobbled and colonial-era buildings, now transformed into desirable restaurants, bars and boutiques. And that’s before you even get to Brazil’s tropical islands (yes, Ilha Grande, we’re thinking of you).
Expect languid days spent on hammock-strung specks, snorkeling, sunbathing, sipping caipirinhas at sunset and embracing the country’s salsa rhythms. Looking for a week in paradise? This is it.
Top Places To Visit In Brazil
The most populous city in South America’s most populous country. Yep, São Paulo knows how to go big with its modernist Oscar Niemeyer-stamped architecture, colorful street art and countless restaurant options. . But there’s no rest for the wicked: a thriving nightlife scene ranges from traditional botecos (bars) to more exclusive spots. Sore head? No sweat: there are beaches and islands within easy reach.
Rio De Janeiro
If you’re looking for a memorable destination to try out group solo travel, Rio de Janeiro is the place. Friendly Carioca locals will stick a coconut in your hand (maybe even a caipirinha) and show you the best of their city – from the beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana to the artsy hilltop Santa Teresa neighborhood, stacked with street art and smart hotels. Meanwhile, Christ the Redeemer statue looks down over it all, keeping a watchful eye on the party and the city’s lively neighborhoods.
Set against a backdrop of mountains, islands and azure waters, Paraty is a characterful colonial-era town – all cobbled streets and colorful doorways – now renowned for its culinary scene. Talented artists and writers call this tropical spot home. And who could blame them with waterfalls to swim in, cachaça to sample and a cosmopolitan vibe all round…
Islands don’t come much sweeter than this. No cars, no traffic – only traditional hammock-strung pousadas (hotels) where hummingbirds swoop amid bougainvillea bushes; miles of hiking trails that lead to white-sand crescents, such as Lopes Mendes beach; and a knitted jungly interior where you might just spot some of South America’s resident wildlife. Hard to leave? Just a little…
