Top 5 / South America

Winter in Brazil brings with it many things to do. In fact, when it comes to being outdoors, the winter months offer some excellent opportunities. Winter runs June–September in Brazil with temperatures in the upper 70s. The top five things to do in Brazil during winter stretch across the country. There is clearly no end to the options possible, but here are five options for a winter trip to South America’s largest country.

 

Rainforest

The Amazon rainforest is more temperate during the winter months and cruises are regularly available.

 

Sugarloaf Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain and “Christ the Redeemer”  will take the better part of a day, accessible by tram. This tram started in 1912 and was the first in Brazil.

 

Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is open year-round and exploring this city in the winter can be more pleasant in milder temperatures.

 

Olindo

Visit Olinda in northeastern Brazil, one of the best preserved colonial cities and home to the famous St. Benedict Monastary.

 

Natal

For something a little more unusual, visit the world’s largest cashew tree in Natal, Brazil. As famous as the California Redwoods, the setting for this tree is more beautiful than one can imagine.

Medical Products You Probably Don’t Need to Pack

The internet is teeming with countless listicles that advise you on what to pack for your next vacation, especially when it comes to products to help you stay safe and healthy while miles away from home. But there are some medical products you might not really need, despite the overflow of suggestions.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Inexpensive European Ski Destinations

Winter isn’t quite over, especially high in the Alps and Pyrenees, two of Europe’s main mountain ranges for skiing. Catch a flight to one of these locations for some last-minute seasonal skiing on a budget.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
