Last Updated

Brazil has been making headlines lately, and some travelers may be wondering if Latin America’s most diverse country is worth visiting.

Between travel security alerts and newly implemented e-visa requirements, travelers may feel like they have to keep their heads on a swivel and their eyes on their bank account.

Skyline and beaches of Recife, Brazil

The truth is Brazil is a phenomenal place to visit, with many bucket-list-worthy destinations within its borders.

U.S. Travelers can now book nonstop flights to 7 Brazilian cities for the ultimate adventure between the Amazon, iconic cities, and insanely beautiful beaches.

The Newest Addition: The Astounding Beach City Of Recife

Americans may be unaware of Azul – one of Brazil’s top airlines. Widely used and very popular within Brazil, they are beginning to make their presence known in the States.

A direct route to the incredible beach city of Recife is making a comeback from both Orlando and Fort Lauderdale this summer.

Beginning in June, one weekly overnight flight from each Florida city will take off to Brazil’s northeastern paradise on brand new planes.

What Playa Delfines is to Cancun, Boa Viagem Beach is to Recife. Here, you can rent a cheap high-rise Airbnb for stunning views along one of Brazil’s many beautiful beaches.

The Gateway To The Amazon

Jaguars, piranhas and anacondas, oh my! Manaus is the biggest city to be used as a gateway into the vast Amazon rainforest and is more accessible for Americans to go on a trip of a lifetime…with bug spray in hand, of course.

If there was ever a place to visit to immerse yourself in unspoiled nature, Manaus is your access point. Cultural, wild, cosmopolitan, and everything in between, Manaus makes for an unforgettable trip.

Azul flies nonstop from Fort Lauderdale to Manaus once per week on Friday.

A Riverfront City Waiting To Be Discovered

Another city nestled along the Amazon is the lesser known capital city – Belem. Also serving as a gateway to the Amazon’s wonders just like Manaus, this smaller riverfront city is jam-packed with history as well.

Beyond the scenic river, going inland to see the sites is the way to go, with many tourists visiting the unmissable 16th-century Tower of Belem.

Travelers will need to get comfortable on this flight as the only option is overnight, just like in Recife. Azul flies nonstop every day (excluding Fridays) from Fort Lauderdale this June.

The Foodie Capital Of Brazil

Beyond Brazilian steakhouses, Americans may not realize how much their tastebuds will love Brazilian cuisine.

The culinary scene goes far beyond endless meats and acai bowls and there’s no better place to discover this aspect of Brazil than the state of Minas Gerias, the country’s food capital.

The urban sprawl of Belo Horizonte serves as the state’s capital and this safe, affordable city is your entry point to this highly underrated region, including the must-visit town of Ouro Preto.

Azul begins nonstop service from Fort Lauderdale on June 1st with one weekly ‘redeye’ flight each Saturday.

The Lesser Known Gem Of Campinas

Brazil so massive, it’s nearly impossible to explore it all and that’s where lesser known gems like Campinas come in.

Although, it’s safe to many simply Campinas for its geography given how close it is to the fabulous city of Sao Paulo, inarguably the country’s biggest melting pot of culture.

Azul, also headquartered in Campinas, recently acquired more planes to accommodate this route which flies Americans here from Fort Lauderdale every day and Orlando 6 days per week.

A Straight Shot To Sao Paulo

A popular city for digital nomads given its affordability and cultural experiences, Sao Paulo should be at the top of the list for all travelers looking to make their way to Brazil.

One of the biggest cities in the world is oftentimes one of the most affordable gateways into the country. That’s not to say you want to skip Sao Paulo entirely, but it also serves as one of the best gateways to explore other areas, such as cheap flights to Salvador or Foz de Iguazu.

Travelers can skip out on Campinas and take a straight shot to Sao Paulo (GRU) with U.S.-based carriers American, Delta, and United.

Brazil’s Most Iconic Destination

Christ the Redeemer in Rio

Last but not least…or is it? The recent travel security alert issued by the U.S. Consulate certainly hasn’t helped Rio’s reputation.

Nonetheless, there’s no doubt Rio is the most sought-after destination in Brazil, from Copacabana Beach to the incredible Christ the Redeemer statue we all know.

Whether or not Rio is worth a visit right now is completely up to you, but the good news is there are 6 other alternatives to get your Brazil passport stamp.

For those who decide to explore one of Latin America’s most iconic cities, Rio is easy to reach with nonstop flights from American, Delta, and United. Although, there are more flight options to Sao Paulo.
