Travel with food: Vatapa from #Brazil

Brazilian cuisine is largely made up of seafood and curries. And, there’s a lot of chilli peppers and coconut milk that’s used. This creamy shrimp stew called vatapa is a local favourite, especially in Bahia, and combines the best of both worlds. Granted, it’s not for vegetarians, but swap the shrimp for potatoes and you should be good to go. Here’s how you can make it at home.

Hilton Rio de Janeiro Copacabana

Rio de Janeiro, #Brazil

Though something of a behemoth in size, the hotel is reassuringly friendly. It is also a one-stop-shop in terms of facilities, the city’s arteries pump past its doorstep and Copacabana’s vistas soften its corporate edges.

Ask an expert: Essential #Brazil

Q. I'd like to visit Brazil soon but would only have a week or two there. What would you recommend including on the itinerary?

A. Brazil has so much to offer and is such a diverse and interesting country to explore with many truly unique experiences around most corners.

You cannot visit Brazil without visiting the iconic destination of Rio de Janeiro and, if you are lucky enough to visit during Carnival, you'll be able to soak up the celebration of this vibrant and exciting culture. While in Rio, enjoy the sights and sounds of the infamous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Two thirds of the Brazilian population lives near the coast meaning the beach is a popular spot to relax for locals and tourists alike. A full day can be spent visiting Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, both very popular icons of this amazing city.

A bit further afield is the city of Manaus, the gateway to the Amazon jungle which is teeming with wildlife like caiman, jaguar and exotic birds. The accommodation is rustic and provides an authentic jungle experience. If you prefer admiring from afar, hop aboard an Amazon cruise for a leisurely trip.

And then of course there are the Iguazu Falls which are so massive they straddle two countries and are beautiful! I'd suggest spending two days here to fully appreciate them.

For the more laid-back traveller, there are the beautiful coastal villages of Paraty and Buzios – both are just a few hours from Rio and offer stunning beaches amid lovely historic villages.

Brazil really is a destination which has something for everyone!

18 gorgeous photos of the best tropical beaches in the world

Praia do Canoa Quebrada, in northeastern #Brazil, is a beach just off of a small fishing village where golden sand dunes slide into blue waters. Sip on fresh agua de coco while sunbathing, go sandboarding in the dunes, or try out windsurfing.

Mangaratiba: the Gateway of Rio's Stunning 'Costa Verde'

With modest fame and only 100 kilometers away from Rio, the little city of Mangaratiba surpasses everyone's expectations, offering amazing beaches, waterfalls, resorts and a historical center.

Located at the entrance of Costa Verde (Green Coast) along the southern shoreline of Rio State, Mangaratiba has frequently been overlooked – considering Ilha Grande, and Paraty’s tourism appeal. However, Mangaratiba offers stunning nature and solid hotel infrastructure, and is closer and less expensive.

Salvador city guide: How to spend a weekend in #Brazil's musical and cultural epicenter

With beautiful beaches, Bahian beats and a strong African influence, Salvador is Brazil’s coastal gem. Here's what to do in 48 hours

Why go now?

While Carnival might be over in Brazil for another year, Salvador is the country’s musical and cultural centre; it’s where Brazilians come to party all year round. Jazz, African beats and the local axe music (which mixes samba with reggae) drift among the cobbled streets and tiny beach bars in Brazil’s most African city.
