Get a guidebook. It's a country the size of the continental U.S. If you know the trip will be awesome and have already planned to go, you must have some idea of what to do. Invest in the guidebook, then come back and ask specific questions. Or go to a travel agent. Each person's interests, budget and available time are different. Be sure to look into costs. Brazil is not an inexpensive country to visit, which shocks some visitors. Be prepared.

Hi Rob,

in which part of Brazil are you going?

And also what kind of stuff are you want to do? More sightseeing? Relaxing?

If you are a more active person I can recommend you two activities:

1) Surfing: you have plenty of possibilities to surf in Brazil. One of the best schools to learn surfing is EasyDrop ( www.easydrop.com ) in Itacarè (300km south of Salvador). I have been there few times and I love those guys. They are very professional and Itacare is offering stunning beaches. Just read that they are listed in the top 10 surf schools by National Geographic.

2) A second option I can recommend is Chapada Diamantina. It is in the backland of Salvador. It is perfekt for doing some hikes, biking or other adventures. A must see a the Burucao waterfall, Fumaca waterfall and also very are the blue pools, where you can snorkel.

Both are very safe regions/cities. Probably also good to know when you are traveling with your family. And when you are in the region is alo worth to see Salvador, but there just inform you where you can go and where better not :-)

Okay I hope it helps.

Have fun and enjoy Brazil

I like the Lonely Planet guide to Brazil, but there are many others. It will be a good investment, as there are so many possibilities in such a big country.
