Best Hidden Places to Travel in Brazil

By: Claudia Repsold

Everyone knows about Rio de Janeiro and the Amazon rainforest — it’s not exactly a secret that you have to visit these places in Brazil. But what about the rest of the country?

Brazil has the most biodiversity in the world, with an area of 8.51 million square kilometers and many amazing places that will take your breath away.

We selected seven places in Brazil where you must go before you die … or even after.

1 – Fernando de Noronha

Imagine an archipelago made up of 11 square kilometers of volcanic rock and 20 smaller islands with crystal-clear water, exotic marine life, and the most spectacular beaches you have ever encountered. This paradise is Fernando de Noronha, one of the most stunning places in Brazil; no words will prepare you for the natural beauty that you will find there. The first celebrity to visit this place was Charles Darwin in 1832.


2- Cataratas do Iguaçu/ Iguazu Falls (Board of Brazil & Argentina)

Upon seeing Iguazu, the First Lady of the United States, Eleanor Roosevelt, reportedly exclaimed, “Poor Niagara!” Vastly larger than Niagara Falls, Iguazu is unbelievably cool! At 250 feet high, it is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, with a semicircular shape made up of 275 cascades. It’s a truly endless flow of water, surrounded by a subtropical rainforest with more than 2,000 species of plants and wildlife.

3- Lençóis – State of Maranhão

At first glance, the blue, green, and black lagoons mixed with dazzling white dunes might make you think you’re in an oasis in the middle of the desert. However, you are at the National Park of Lençóis near the Amazon basin, a region with a regular rainy season and unparalleled beauty.

4 – Jericoacoara – State of Ceará

We all dream about finding a hidden paradise to take us to another dimension — a magical cocoon where you can lay a hammock near the sparkling ocean and relax in a timeless environment. This place has a name: Jericoacoara, voted the best beach in the world by Lonely Planet.


5- Chapada Diamantina – State of Bahia

The National Park of Chapada Diamantina is a truly incredible site, where you can find giant waterfalls, caves, canyons, rapids, natural swimming pools, enchanted wells, endangered animals, rare types of orchids, and other singularities that you will discover for yourself. Whatever you’re into, Chapada Diamantina has it — including hiking, mountain climbing, cave diving, ziplining, rappelling, canoeing, and swimming. Or, just sit back, relax, and do some nature-watching.

6- Bonito – State of South Mato Grosso

Have you ever dived into a lagoon of crystal-clear water inside a cavern? You should try it. This unforgettable experience will change your perspective on diving. Bonito is an ecological paradise located in Brazil’s heartland. Together, the private and public sector have organized a sustainable ecotourism venture to preserve the wildlife, caves, mountains, and forest in the national park and in 10 private reserves open for ecotourism.

7- Parque Nacional da Capivara – State of Piauí

The Serra da Capivara National Park houses one of the most important archaeological sites in the Americas. The earliest known evidence of people in the Americas is here. The park has more rock art than anywhere else in the world, over 30,000 examples have been catalogued so far. The oldest rock art here may date from 26,000BC, which is around six time older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids

Over 300 archaeological sites have been found within the park, the majority consisting of rock and wall paintings dating from 50,000-30,000 years ago. UNESCO has declared the park a World Heritage Site
