Brazil is a huge country with a lot to offer its visitors by means of culture and entertainment. It’s a sizzling destination for anyone seeking something different in culture and climate. Brazil is an absolute blast just like the other destination in South America, a continent full of dreams, adventures and future discoveries.
Take some extra time off on your vacation to delve deeper into the continent you are visiting. Most tour operators include Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, Peru and Argentina in their Latin American travel itineraries. A visa and other formalities are not required if you are going on a day-trip to the neighboring countries.
These countries are linked by a strong road network where you can find luxurious coaches and the really gritty one. There are also inter-city flights that can take you from place to place in less than half the time but are rather expensive.
There are “Hopping” tickets available which enable a traveler to make 5 stops within the continent. These are really good but have to be purchased when you book your flights to Brazil. They are not available for purchase in the country. The “Mercosur Airpass” and “Visit South America Pass” are two types of “Hopping” tickets available that are valid for travel in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. Both air passes have their own list of destinations. Your budget will be the ultimate deciding factor in the choice of transport.
If possible, make sure to include these marvelous places around South America into your itinerary:
- Easter Islands (Chile) – Famous of the enormous sculptures.
- Machu Picchu (Peru) – The mystical lost city of Incas.
- Galapagos Islands (Ecuador) – Feast your eyes on giant tortoises, sea lions and unique sea iguanas.
- Lake Titicaca (Border of Bolivia and Peru) – A sight that would evoke an immense tranquility.
- Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia) – A completely indescribable dried up salt lake.
There are so many places to visit outside Brazil. You could begin your trip from Venezuela and go all around to Argentina. Yes, that’s a long way, but with time and enthusiasm, it could work out to be a wonderful adventure.
