We're a couple planning to visit Brazil for 7-10 days in September. Fernando de Noronha seems like a great destination. Are there other alternatives, more accessible from Rio or Buenos Aires?

    Hi Anders,

    Fernando de Noronha is the place to go, but the prices to reach the island by plane, the amount to pay to stay there and the time you have I don't think is realistic. Exists lots of options, I will give you my list of favorites:

    1)Morro de São Paulo - 3 hours by ferry boat from Salvador in Bahia. You also can spend 2 or 3 days in Salvador exploring the city and another 3 days in Morro.
    2)Praia de Pipa - 3 hours from Natal - Rio Grande do Norte. You will need to rent a car or take a van to reach this beach. This beach is very beautiful with great restaurants and confortable pousadas.
    3)Florianópolis - Easy fly from Argentina, this island of Florianópolis is located in Santa Catarina and it's high a developed area, Joaquina beach, Armação, Santinho, and Ingleses are the most famous beach's around. about 8 years ago

    A friend of our kept on raving about Buzios near Rio. We ahven't been there but it is rated as a top destination on TripAdvisor. http://bit.ly/SGWbw8

    "If there’s a "beach economy," Buzios is its Wall Street. Its more than 20 beaches, world-class galleries, clubs and boutiques draw an elite set of travelers. Surfers love Geriba Beach, snorkelers enjoy Ferruda, hip Ossos Beach offers upscale beachside cafes and laid-back Ilhabela Beach offers a more down-to-earth Buzios experience."

    Try to go to Praia dos Carneiros in Pernambuco. Its way more accessible paradise!
    It was the Carneiros` family farm, and nowadays they have some hostels/pousadas around the area. Very nice restaurants inside of the hostels. almost 7 years ago

    There are over 280 different beaches.
    With a mild tropical climate allover the year (32°C in the summer and 28°C in the "winter" around Salvador for example)
    Up North Salvador you have the famous "Costa de Coco" or Coconut-coast, and South you have the "Costa de dende" or Palm-coast.
    Nice really aphorodisiac beaches can be found at Arembepe, Abrantes, Praia do Forte, islands of Itaparica / Morro de São Paulo and Boipeba, Itacaré, etc over 4 years ago
