rio, iguassu, florianopolis tours

Florianopolis (at the South coast) and Iguassu (at the inland border with Argentine and Paraguay) are 610 miles/965 Kms distant from each other. They form, with Rio de Janeiro (932 miles/1500 Kms from Iguassu), three interconnected and very distinct Brazilian destinations.

Rio de Janeiro has music, a fun nightlife and great beaches.

The Iguassu Falls form the world's biggest waterfalls, an unique natural wonder.

Florianopolis, in the Santa Catarina state, is 438 miles/705 Kms south of Sao Paulo, and with its 42 beaches, a spectacular lake (Lagoa da Conceicao), rivers, streams, dunes and rich vegetation makes a different Brazil, deeply distinct from the tropical one and from Rio. Florianopolis is a major sea sports center.
