Are You A Senior Who’s Up For Some Fun And Adventure? Here Are Some Reasons Why You Should Go To Brazil
Are you in your 60’s and your looking for a one of a kind vacation that is one for the books when it comes to fun and adventure? Then there is one thing that should be on top of your list. Home to sandy beaches, magnificent architecture, beautiful rain forests and a whole host of other attractions, Brazil is one place where you are guaranteed to experience a unique, once-in-a-lifetime holiday. Read on to find out more about why you should put this holiday destination on your bucket list.
Rio de Janeiro
It isn’t hard to see why this part of the world is popular with tourists; South America is home to some of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world and one of those is Rio de Janeiro. Christ the Redeemer takes center stage in the landscape of this impressive city. A train leaves every 30 minutes to take you to the top of Corcovado where you not only get to take a selfie with the man himself, but can experience breath-taking views right across Rio de Janeiro. If you only have a limited time here, then a day tour might be the best option to help you see as much as possible in this bustling city. On top of it all, everything is done in a convenient manner and you shouldn’t worry about a thing even if in your 60s.
If it has ever been your dream to explore the Amazon, the world’s largest rain forest, then this is the perfect opportunity to do that. You might decide to go it alone, but that isn’t generally recommended; instead look for experienced tour guides who can provide an interesting, yet safe activity. Most tours of the Amazon take place on foot, offering you the chance to get up close and personal with the rainforest and its inhabitants; some tours may even take you to explore ruins or visit the people who live there.
Carnival is a huge festival of colour, sound and frivolity celebrated throughout Brazil, before Easter, beginning on the Friday before Lent begins. You may have participated in a similar festival nearer to home, but you have not seen anything like the one held in Rio every year. It is a wild 5 day celebration with much excess and rhythmic samba music guaranteed to get even the most reluctant person dancing. Thought to be a time of saying goodbye to all pleasures that are traditionally given up during the 40 day period of Lent, Carnival is a popular outlet for many, with hundreds of thousands taking to the streets to participate. Make sure to a choose an appropriate ride that will complement your age, physique, etc.
As you can see, Brazil is literally teeming with possibilities when it comes to arranging a unique and colorful holiday; too much to cover in this short post, but you get the idea!
