"Kimkim is the perfect solution for independent travelers who are too busy to plan it all themselves" - Gayle R., traveled with kimkim in October 2019

Introducing Brazil

Verdant jungles, white sand beaches, colorful and culturally explosive urban cities, colonial towns, and incredible wildlife... Brazil always had it all, but recent global mega events like the world cup football (AKA soccer) and the Olympics have placed it even more firmly on the international map.

When is the best time to visit?
Travel to Brazil in April through June or August through October. In July, major tourist draws are often crowded since local schools are on vacation, and the summer months from December through February are often too warm for comfort.

Where to go in Brazil?
Learn how to truly celebrate something in the legendarily vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro or relax in the much slower-paced Santa Teresa. From the country twang of Sertanejo, the reggae of Maranhão, the carimbó music of the Amazon, Brazil is a country to be experienced through the rhythms of its people.  

How many days do I need?
While travelers might be tempted to visit Brazil in less than a week, the variety of experiences and destinations within this large country should be experienced over at least twice that amount of time.

Explore trips by duration: 5 days · 6 days · 7 days · 9 days · 10 days · 14 days

Loved Paraty, the trekking we made with Rocco Belleti, the best guide we could ever had, and also the Boat ride with "Peixe" with a fresh fish meal aboard. Loved our free day witch Rocco that took us in a beautiful boat ride in "Saco de Mamangua", with a great trekking in the "manguezal", and a beautiful fish lunch in the surroundings.
We also loved "Ilha Grande", paradise on earth, charming boutique hotel, we had a great day with Carlos, that guided us through the best 10km of treckking ever, till we get to the wonderful "Lopes Mendes" beach. The next day boat trip around the island was also very good. Not only Carlos chose a very good travel agency but also gave us some precious tips for that day.
At last Rio de Janeiro, we had less time, but Lucas did its best to provide us with a broad view of the way of life and best spots of Rio.

At one point I thought they will just leave me or start caring less about me and my trip due to the many demands, but no! They were on point till the last day!
From customer service, to hotel personal, restaurant staff in the city, guides, assistance during the trip, everything was 10/10 !!!
Chapada Diamantina has so much history and unbelievable nature that is just mesmerising. However the people who assist you along the way, make the trip as much as the destination visited, and I can happily say that this 4 day trip was probably one of the best I have had here in Brazil so far.
I will most definitely use their services again when I come back!
No matter what kind of demands you might have, this beautiful team consisting of brilliant people will surely assist you in making THE BEST trip you can around Brazil and you won't regret a single thing.
The best part, they take care of EVERYTHING! You just need to enjoy it ;)
