Curator’s statement

While Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world, we don't hear too much about it being a regular vacation destination as much as the Santorini, Machu Picchu or Paris visitors of the world. Why, when Brazilians and their culture offer so much to the rest of the world? In terms of a diverse blend of rich music, cuisine, stunning nature and sport. Whether it is a week or a month, Brazil is full of enjoyment for any type of traveler, and one would not even scratch the surface to truly experience it all. This is what my husband and I decided that we wanted when planning our honeymoon.
