This Latino adventure embraces the party mecca of Brazil with open arms. Starting and ending in sizzling Rio, this bucket list city is one of non stop samba, soccer and sunset caipirinhas. From partying with locals in Lapa to rooftop cocktail classes at sunset, there’s also a Wonder of the World to visit and iconic beaches to fall back on (and let’s just say the the Sugarloaf becomes even sweeter with drinks on its summit at sunset). Plus, sandwiched nicely in the middle, lies 3 days of Paraty paradise. Here you can snorkel around jungle islands, slide down waterfalls and stroll along the colourful streets. Whether you’re leaping across the sand playing beach volleyball or diving off your private boat into the Atlantic, get ready to throw yourself in. An exotic adventure awaits.

Itinerary

Day 1: CAIPIRINHAS AT SUNSET

Step off the plane and prepare for your first evening in Brazil, which just so happens to be a sizzlin’ Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro. Here begins your Brazilian adventure, kicking off with a rooftop caipirinha lesson at sunset. Sip back on your first Cachaça-fuelled cocktail looking out to blazing views across Rio and its iconic skyline. We’re then heading to a cool local neighbourhood for dinner just as the vibrant nightlife kicks into action. Get a taste for this awesome city after dusk, there’s plenty more where that came from.

Day 2: SELFIES WITH JESUS

Have your bucket lists at the ready because this morning we’re visiting a Wonder of the World. No trip to Rio would be complete without getting up close to Christ the Redeemer, so we’re heading up the Corcovado Mountain to admire this epic statue in all 125 feet of its towering splendour. It also happens to be a crucial landmark in Flash Pack history, with our Co-founder Lee’s ‘Selfie with Jesus catapulting Flash Pack into the press back in 2014. Once you’ve got plenty of selfies of your own (at base level this time), we’re leaving the tourists behind and heading to the Bohemian district of Santa Teresa. Enjoy lunch at an authentic local restaurant before an afternoon exploring the arty streets of Santa Teresa. We’ll then head back down to the hotel where you can carry the party on at beach level, it would be rude not to…

Day 3: AT THE COPA, COPACABANA

Get ready to embrace your inner Cariocas today and live like a local. Here begins the ultimate beach day of sunbathing, swimming and strolling your way across Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. We’ll start with lunch at a juice bar before a sun-soaked afternoon of beach volleyball matches and kicking back on the white sand. As the sun melts away your cares, freshen up with plenty of ice cream and local juices whilst immersing yourself in the sizzling spectacle of Rio’s beachfront. From its muscly weight-lifting area to the cross dressing section, fishermen’s colony and favela kids’ football hangouts, it’s an ever changing parade of people gathering at certain posts along the sand. A golden sunset seems a fitting way to end today so we’re heading to the jutting rock at Arpoador for panoramic views across this epic city.
