Fernando de Noronha offers some of the best beaches in the world, Iguassu Falls are the worlds finest and Rio de Janeiro, in our opinion at least, is the most beautiful city in the world. This all makes for a wonderful honeymoon to Brazil.
Fly to the town of Foz do Iguaçu, the gateway to the most impressive waterfalls in the world, where upon arrival you will be met at the airport by an English speaking driver and taken to your chosen hotel.

Within the park on the Brazilian side is approximately a mile of boardwalks which snake through the trees and allow you to get close up to the full force of the waterfalls and also see an abundance of wildlife such as coatis or toucans. The tour ends on the upper part of the falls which are reached by a panoramic elevator before you return to your hotel.

Once in the national park there are two ecological trains which are perfect to take you around the parks attractions taking you eventually to the Devils Throat Station for the best view of Iguassu Falls.
