Experience 10-days in two of Brazil’s most vibrant cities, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia. Two places, two paces, one sweet Brazilian flavor.
We’ll begin our adventure in Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s most famous cities, showing you many sides to this multi-faceted destination. You will have a chance to visit a Quilombo (traditional settlement founded by runaway slaves) and volunteer in that community for a day. You’ll tour the famous landmarks, such as Christ the Redeemer, and explore some of the hidden histories during our African Heritage tour. There’s also plenty of free time to relax on the beach, try some new restaurants featuring the local cuisine, or check out the nightlife. We’ll make sure you’re fully prepared with a caipirinha-making workshop and samba lesson.
After showing you the best of Rio, we will fly North to Salvador da Bahia. You’ll discover why this city is called “Little Africa”. With over 70% of inhabitants being of African descent, many are still connected to their roots through dance, food, and religion. You’ll learn about the Yoruba culture prevalent in Brazil and tour the surrounding historical sites. Let the ocean breeze kiss your face and wind sweep you off of your feet as you parasail through the sky during our boat party. On our final evening, we’ll enjoy a farewell dinner as a group before heading back to Rio the next morning and saying, tchau! Goodbye, for now!
