Ah, Brazil, the beautiful Portuguese-speaking country in South America. Home of football (yes, it’s football, not soccer), Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro carnival, and the whooping sixty percent of the Amazon rainforest, is also known as the country which loves dogs. This makes Brazil the perfect travel destination for you and your adventure buddy, your lovely doggo. So whether you are checking out the Christ the Redeemer Statue or casually looking for Adriana Lima, you and your pup will undoubtedly have the best time ever!
Have you always wanted to spend your afternoons on a tropical island, sipping cocktails and exploring the majestic beaches while the sun makes your skin look tan and beautiful? Does that island involve the Atlantic ocean, a national park, and the breathtaking surroundings? If so, and if your doggo feels as adventurous as you do, why not go full islander and visit the gorgeous archipelago Fernando de Noronha, just about 350 kilometers off Brazil’s coast. The largest island is tiny and the population is also under 4000, so you are in for a relaxing time at this tropical paradise.
One of the most exciting cities in the whole world is one of the most famous cities in Brazil – Rio de Janeiro. Not only is it the home of the most renowned carnival ever, but it is also a vibrant place full of exciting activities, landmarks, beautiful streets, and wonderful people who love doggos. Instead of always relying on the travel agent to arrange a city tour, you can be an adventurous tourist and explore the city with a smaller group of people and for almost free, by finding one of the local free tours. Most hostel staff will gladly point you in the right direction and give you good recommendations on best free tours of the city, so, pack your backpack, get a leash, and explore Rio!
If you are a fan of Mother Nature and you want to soak up as many of her beauties as you can, you will love this one. Take your pup on an adventure of a lifetime by visiting the gorgeous Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, one of the most breathtaking places on this planet. The national park has it all – white sand beaches, delightful blue lagoons, and mangrove swamps – all built by our very own nature. One of the most exciting things about this place is the vast field of dunes, something you do not often see anywhere in the world due to their unique formation. You can find this national park in northeast Brazil, close to Baia de Sao Jose.
Visit the sunny Guanabara Bay, located close to Rio de Janeiro and check out some astonishing mountains! Get your hiking gear, pack a doggy bowl, grab a leash and go on an adventure!
If you are looking for more national parks, visit Chapada Diamantina – a place filled with waterfalls, caves, and most importantly – the Devil’s Pool which is filled with black water! Your pup and you can play expedition and discover new nooks in this park, and who knows, maybe you will find something no one ever has!
Brazil is a magical country with many attractions to offer. However, probably the best thing about it is the untouched nature and a plethora of national parks that will satisfy even the most adventurous of spirits. So, pack your bags, pack your doggy bag, get a good leash and start exploring Brazil hand in paw with your best friend!
