Welcome to Brazil! 

We will meet you at the Airport upon your arrival. Our team will help get you checked in at your accommodations. Settle in, relax and feed your eyes to the new environment.   At nightfall, we will host a Welcome Dinner. You'll have an opportunity to indulge in authentic  cuisine while getting to know your fellow travelers.   

Welcome to the real Brazil! 

Day 02  The Lavagem do Bonfim 

After breakfast at our hotel, we join the local population in celebrating an important part of their cultural heritage Lavagem do Bonfim. The traditional washing of Bonfim's staircases is considered the second largest popular manifestationof Bahia, only behind Carnival. 

Day 03   Cultural Tour

Today we set out to explore the oasis of culture in Salvador. The city was the 1st capital of Brazil and remained so for over 200 years. We will explore Catholic churches & the cultural district of Pelourinho. This city has the MOST African influence in the world outside of the Continent of Africa. Today we will be immersing in Afro Brazilian flavor. This evening we will offer a Capoeira or cooking class.

Day 04    Community

Quilombos are communities formed by black people during the slavery time.  Quilombos had formed in all over Brazil, many of them were powerful, at a side they had to fight against colonizers but otherside they could preserve the black culture, religion, food, music, expression and knowledge. Situated in the rural areas, it is not easy to reach out one for visiting, so this is an unforgatable chance to get to know the history & giving back, through activities will be prepared with kids of the community. At nightfall we will gather with locals and visitors to enjoy a pré carnival party! 

Day 05    Suns out, Funs Out! 

Our time in Salvador is ending, but fortunately we have more time in Brazil! It's time to venture to southeast of Brazil to beautiful Rio de Janeiro. Sunday is officially dayoff in Brazil. Locals enjoy the most they can in outdoors activities, we should do the same!!

Caphrianas and copacabana beach is always a great vibe so we are taking our party there for a EPIC beach meetup! Pack your swimwear and sunscreen as we kickoff RIO right!

Day 06    Marvelous Rio

Today after Breakfast we explore famous sights in Rio de Janeiro from  Sugar Loaf and Corcovado Mountains, to  the impressive World Wonder - Christ the Redeemer who stands guard overlooking the city.
 We will visit the famous colorful Selaron Steps. Decorated with more than 2,000 brightly colored tiles in the colors of the Brazilian flag, the Selarón Staircase (Escadaria Selarón) is one of Rio de Janeiro's most vibrant and striking landmarks, marking the boundary between the Lapa and Santa Teresa neighborhoods.
 

Day 07    African Heritage

Brazilians of African origin comprise nearly 60 percent of the total population of Brazil. Today we get to explore the Black History of Brazil by a walking tour in the Port Zone, the area was the main entrace for the millions that were enslaved from the Motherland. Get to go deep into the history that has never showed on travel guides. We will close the trip at a Carnival Samba School and get the opportunity to learn the famous carnival samba and take part of the Pre carnival festivities.
