Brazil Family Holidays

The options for a family holiday to Brazil are endless. A hugely diverse country that is home to the largest jungle in the world, the mighty Iguacu waterfall and over 4,000 miles of coastline. Listen to the squawks of the macaw in the Pantanal, learn to climb a tree in the Amazon or try fishing for piranha. Head to one of the beaches for some surfing, snorkelling or swimming or try the local pastime of football on the beach.

Featured Family Properties in Brazil

Create a home away from home for pure magical family time. Spend your days swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, relaxing in a hammock on the beach or hiking to waterfalls and visiting nearby UNESCO towns for an ice cream and some culture.

A beautiful resort on a stunning two mile stretch of jungle-fringed beach, this is a paradise for kids. Great surf, Sea Turtle Project, children’s pool and a range of water sports plus a spa and babysitting service to ensure parents can relax too. Children under six stay free.

Your own floating adventure home from which to explore the Amazon, complete with guide, crew and cook. Clear warm waters and beaches, perfect for swimming and enjoying meals on the sand, a rainforest playground.

Stay in one of the two comfortable lodges, each with their own pool and search for wildlife including giant anteater, capybara, howler monkey, spectacled caiman and of course the mighty jaguar.
