Max from Dallas asked

Two weeks in Brazil. Where should we go?

We are all in our 20s. We want to be able to sight see, enjoy the nightlife, and are up for an adventure. Any suggestions?

Brazil

There's a lot to see in Brazil, but you should consider Rio de Janeiro (expensive, but unmissable), Ouro Preto (colonial charm and good food), Ilha Grande or Paraty (fun in the sun) and Foz do Iguaçu (perhaps the most impressive waterfalls in the world).

I would suggest that you combine Rio de Janeiro Foz do Iguaçu and and Paraty for a nice combin ation of culture, nature and nightlife and in two weeks it's doable to visit all 3 places as long as you are ready to use domestic flights to and from Foz do Iguacu.

Iguaçu Falls is amazing! Just a note for Max, though - if you go on an American passport and want to visit both sides (which you should!), the reciprocity fee for entering Argentina is an additional $160 and needs to be paid ahead of time.

Obviously, you have to go to Rio de Janeiro - nightlife, sightseeing, beaches, culture... I'd also add a couple of days at a party beach like Buzios, to round out one full week.

My suggestion for the second week would be to go to Salvador Bahia for three or four days. Salvador has a warmer climate, beaches, and lots of African-influenced food, dance, and culture. F Design Hostel is a neat place to stay. From there, if you want to see a more natural side of Brazil, you could spend a few days in Parque Nacional da Chapada Diamantina.
