The trip to Brazil was delightful. Each region had it's own uniqueness and we enjoyed our time in each place. There are two specific reasons that made the trip special:
Because we did not speak the language it helped tremendously to be met at the airport on time and to have all the arrangements go like clockwork. An example: we stayed at a lodge deep within the Amazon Rainforest and it took 3.5 hours to get there by car, then by launch on the Amazon river, then by bus to meet another launch for the last hour river ride to the lodge. This could have been a harrowing experience under any circumstances but it all went off without a hitch! We were met on time, the transportation was waiting for us and there was not hassle.
The second reason is that all of our tour guides were lovely people who took care of us and answered all of our questions.
In Rio: Visiting the Christ the Redeemer statue/landmark; a city tour that included the port area and Little Africa neighborhood.
In Salvador, Bahia: The tour guide made the visits to the museums and churches very interesting. The food was delicious!
In the Amazon Rainforest: We enjoyed the caiman spotting at night, a 3.5 hour hike through the forest (with 100% humidity!), and even piranha fishing with our knowledgeable guide.
