It is no small wonder why so many people come to Brazil, this huge nation holds within its borders beaches, jungles, waterfalls, and sophisticated cities. Book a weekend or week-long getaways around Brazil itself, like flying to the city of Sao Paulo (SAO), the nation’s largest, a town that is filled with museums, galleries and entertainment venues. Or fly instead to João Pessoa (JPA), in Paraíba, one of the oldest cities in Brazil, with the added advantage of a less touristy coastline.

Close by, you can fly to Buenos Aires (EZE) the enchanting capital city of Argentina, or go to Mendoza (MDZ) within the same country and test your mettle against South America’s highest mountain; Aconcagua.

The long haul flights from Rio though are nothing to sneeze at. You can fly to the alpine city of Zurich (ZRH) in Switzerland. The whole country is made up of lakes punctuating the soaring Alps, and Zurich is the premier city of the country. Shop for timepieces in the famed home of the greatest watch engineers, Patek Philippe, boat or swim in the lakes, ski or hike in the mountains, and stuff yourself full of delicious Swiss chocolate. Otherwise, why not fly to Lisbon (LIS), in the mother country of Brazil, Portugal, and see how this European nation has shaped the culture of a country on the other side of the world.
