Brazil beach hotels are located over a vast landscape across many states. There are several popular beach resort cities and towns that are ideal for visitors looking for the quintessential Brazilian experience on the country’s beaches. These include Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paul, Recife, Fortaleza, and Florianopolis. The common denominator of these interesting and exciting cities includes some of the country’s best examples of diverse regions, culture, and attractions in some of the world’s best beach resorts.
Rio de Janeiro Beach Hotels
