Punta del Este is a beautiful beach resort in Uruguay, perhaps the best known and most fashionable in South America. It spreads along a peninsula that juts out in the Atlantic Ocean with endless beaches of the most varied kinds. Its deep blue ocean, sand dunes, spectacular houses and gardens, good hotel infrastructure, marina and harbour, international airport, museums and art galleries, as well as a great setting to practice yachting, sailing, golf, polo and fishing, make Punta del Este the ideal place for a vacation. The area also boasts sophisticated shops, excellent restaurants, night-clubs and a luxurious casino. Worthwhile day trips include the laid back village of José Ignacio, with beautiful beaches and striking sunsets, La Pedrera with its dramatic seaside cliffs, or Laguna de Rocha, a National Park with abundant wildlife, or even Cabo Polonio, a nostalgic seaside fishing village tucked into the sand dunes along the ocean which can only be reached by horse-carriage or 4WD vehicles.

Rio Grande is the oldest city in the state with beautiful buildings and monuments, typical of the Portuguese architecture of the 19th Century and with traces of other cultures that were also part of the formation of the city. Besides the physical nature of the city and its buildings, the gastronomy is a reminder of the Portuguese colonization and the marine vocation of Rio Grande. Seafood and the typical drink, the "jeropiga" or "jurupiga", a sweet wine made in Ilha dos Marinheiros (Marinheiros Island), attract more and more visitors. Rio Grande is a privileged peninsula in the Southern end of Brazil. It has Cassino - the largest beach in the world, lagoons, and an ecological zone with many wild animals. The Breakwaters, a work of marine engineering well know all over the world, are a victory of the man over the natural conditions and a great tourist attraction. The countryside, museums and sunset before the waters surrounding the city are highlights of Rio Grande trip.

Tucked along the rim of a serene, well-protected lagoon, prosperous Paranagua has been modernized to accommodate its growing status as one of Brazil’s most important ports for exporting coffee. Still, the city hasn’t forgotten its proud colonial past, which dates back more than 400 years. The historic center reveals treasures such as the Church of Sao Benedito, where slaves once worshipped, and the Museum of Archaeology and Popular Art, a former Jesuit college that now houses a fine collection of local artifacts, including intricate baskets, fine lace and fishing implements of the early Tupi-Guarani Indians. From Paranaqua, visitors can reach Iguaçu Falls, an amazing natural phenomenon comprised of 275 individual waterfalls that span the broad Iguaçu River, which separates Brazil from Argentina. Niagara Falls is but a trickle in comparison to this thundering, must-see attraction in the heart of the jungle.

The entire city of Parati (Paraty) is considered a national monument as it was deemed by UNESCO to be one of the world’s most illustrious examples of Portuguese colonial architecture. A virtual museum within a tropical paradise, it is located southeast of Rio de Janeiro. The streets are lined with beautifully whitewashed buildings and many have colorfully painted trim. Motorized vehicles are forbidden on the majority of the narrow, cobblestone streets, so you can wander freely, absorbed in the tranquility and meticulously preserved architecture. Highlights of this quaint city include numerous churches, in particular the Portuguese Baroque-style Church of Santa Rita, built around 1720. Once all of the city’s beauty is explored, take some time out for a leisurely stroll along the shore or dine at any of the waterfront restaurants serving locally caught fish. There are also several shops in the historic area catering to local artisans and merchants.

Natal is known as "City of the Sun" or "Bride of the Sun", where the sun stands high in the sky for almost 10 hours a day. It is also known as "City of the Dunes". Its sea is of calm, blue and crystal clear waters. The sight of dunes, coconut trees, hills and reefs are also simply marvelous and not to be missed. Internationally renowned for the beauty of its beaches and hospitality of its people, the Northeast region of Brazil holds many strange secrets for the discerning tourist in its little-known interior. These riches occur in the midst of wild landscapes graced with impressive geological monuments formed by erosion over millions of years. The semi-arid climate, impenetrability of the thorn forests and small population of this remote region has helped to preserve these natural and cultural marvels.

Belem is located 60 miles from the Para River entrance to the Amazon Delta. Amid the broad avenues and busy markets of this, Brazil's chief port of the lower Amazon River, there remain many intriguing reminders of how thousands of tons of rubber were once loaded for transit here to the markets of the 19th Century. One of the most attractive cities in South America, Belém has numerous public squares and well-paved streets, many of which extend to the edge of the jungle. The cultural centre of northern Brazil, Belém is the site of the Federal University of Pará (1957) and the Goeldi Museum, with its world-famous Amazonian ethnological and zoological collections.

The capital of the State of Amazonas, the belle époque splendor of Manaus is still evident in the graceful mansions and the Teatro Amazonas opera house. This city, resting on the Rio Negro, was created by the rubber boom of the mid-19th-century, when steam navigation opened up the Amazon to entrepreneurs and the social elite. Today, stroll down the Parisian-styled boulevards and Italian piazzas, or watch the fisherman at Municipal Market unload their catch of the day on the river’s edge.
