Brazil, officially Republica Federativa do Brasil, is one of the world’s most captivating places – a country of white-sand beaches, rain forests and vibrant metropolises. As you know, we both love an active travel experience with plenty of culture and adventure. We are drawn by the music, food and dancing in Rio as well as the sand dunes, snorkeling and hiking of northern Brazil. We have also heard great things about the island of Fernando de Noronha including its varied landscapes and preserved natural beauty.

We have decided to split our time between Rio de Janiero and the beaches in northern Brazil. We discovered an amazing resort in the small beach town of Pipa called Sombra e Agua Fresca, which translates to “shadows and fresh water”. This romantic resort has guests stay in gorgeous bungalows along the ocean. Besides relaxing on the beach, guests have the option of going on sand duning tours in order to get their adrenaline pumping. Sand dunes in this area can be as high as 100ft of powdery white sand. In case this is not exciting enough, we can always try our luck at sandboarding.

In order to enjoy some time in a place a little more off-the-beaten track, Arun and I have decided to spend four days in Fernando de Noronha, an island part of a 21-island archipelago 220 miles off the coast of Brazil. The archipelago got its name from the Portuguese merchant Fernao de Loronha, to whom it was given for services rendered regarded wood imported from Brazil. In 2001, it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its importance to the environment. The island has few inns or “pousadas” that limits the number of tourists. Travel around the island occurs by foot or buggy and activities include hiking, snorkeling, diving and relaxing on the beautiful, secluded beaches. We are looking at staying at the beachside Pousada ze Maria.

We can't tell you how excited we are for this honeymoon. Arun and I are so happy to be spending the rest of our lives together and cannot wait to start out our marriage with such an incredible trip full of memories. We've included some of the activities and experiences we'll be enjoying below. Thank you so much for considering a gift toward this once in a lifetime experience!
