Favorite Places and Things to Do

These are some of our favorite places in Brazil. You can read our stories and browse through our photo galleries, enjoy the scenery and fine examples of Brazilian colonial architecture, crafts, etc. I've created a book about my visit to the Serra da Capivara National Park to see the prehistoric wall and cave paintings. Absolutely extraordinary!

Most of these pages offer suggestions on where to shop and eat, but since things change all the time, that's exactly what they are, just ideas...For tips on making the most of your stay in Rio de Janeiro, please visit our Little Black Book.

The answer to "Where Are You?" is São Paulo!! Cool, huh? We also found the cutest yellow cat in a paulista garden!
