2 Week Brazil Travel Itinerary

2 Week Brazil Travel Itinerary

Brazil is a huge country and it may seem like a fair bit of flying and travel, but you can do a brilliant Brazil trip in 2 weeks or less, with a good about of free time, so don’t let the distances scare you. Take caution and be vigilante in Brazil as poverty and crime is still an issue, but the risk is by far worth the reward if you take the challenge of exploring this magnificent South American country. 

Here are our top recommendations for how to spend a perfect 2 weeks in Brazil with a sample route, itinerary and top rated things to see and do.


Places to Visit on a 2 Week Brazil Travel Itinerary:


Rio de Janeiro (4 days)

Most international flights arrive into the spectcaular city of Rio de Janeiro. With the best sights and activities stretching over the beach, Rio has so much to offer you could easily spend a week visiting places and relaxing by the sea. Here you can see the world famos Copacobana, Christ Redemer, experience the atmosphere in Ipanema, walk the Lapa steps or visit the island of Isla Grande. No trip to Brazil would be compete without visting Rio!


Paraty (3 days)

Paraty is a pretty little colonial town with old architecture, beaches and activities. Located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Paraty is a popular stop off on the journey from Rio to Sao Paulo. This picturesq town is very safe with thousands of tourists visiting every year. There are also day trips to more beaches, waterfalls and tropical nature.


Sao Paulo (3 days)

Sao Bernardo do Campo, Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world and a facsinating city to explore. You will be mesmorized by how big this city is, there are concrete skyscrapers all over the city. You can find lots of cultural activities, restaurants, nightlife and things to do. There are also lots of great day trips available include the beachside Guaruja and Santos which are only a few hours away by bus.


Foz do Iguazu (3 days)

We highly recommend visiting the Foz do Iguaçu waterfalls situated on the border between Brazil and Argentina. With over 250 separate churning waterfalls, the mighty Iguaçu Falls are higher than Niagara and wider than Victoria. This is one of the most spectacular things you can see in the whole world! Although Foz might look a long way from anywhere, it really is worth the trip. From here you can book a flight back to major destinations like Sao Paulo or Rio for your return flight.


Travel Time (1/2 days)

How much time you spend travelling really depends on how much money you want to spend. Bus is the cheapest way to get around but also the longest. You can also fly from major cities if you are short on time.


Places Missed

The places listed above should give you a good introduction to travelling in Brazil but if you have longer we highly recommend trying to visit the Bonito, Pantanal, Amazon, Belo Horizonte and the North East of Brazil which is spectacular. Due to the distances involved and if it is your first time visiting Brazil it is better to save these destinations for a longer, or another trip.
