Sex, dancing and partying: it seems the Brazilians have made a science of all that is fun in life. The world champions of hedonism were no doubt aided by a lush land and steamy climate, but still there is something different about Brazilians. For one, they are the most diverse country in Latin America, not to mention the continent's only former Portuguese colony. One of the largest countries in the world, Brazil certainly has plenty to see-the Amazon and Iguazu falls come to mind-but more than anything it's the Brazilian passion for life, epitomised in Rio's Carnival celebrations, that will make you fall in love and want to return again.

Every day the streets closest to the sea flood with the tide—some residents boat to their doors! Charming and full of cafes, Paraty is not to be missed. Dive off the boat on an included schooner tour and learn more about the town's history as one of the country's greatest producers of fiery cachaça liquor.
