RIO DE JANEIRO - BRAZIL
The picturesque beach resort numbering some 26,000 inhabitants is located in the Lakes Region, also known as the Costa do Sol. It was a sleepy fishing village until the early sixties, when it was 'discovered' by Brigitte Bardot and her Brazilian boyfriend. Because of its natural beauty - calm unpolluted waters of the Atlantic edged with white sand beaches - the illustrious couple grew fond of Búzios and returned summer after summer; it did not take long until the peninsula became a mecca for trendy travellers.
After a two-hour coach-ride we will cross the boundary to Búzios and will change the means of locomotion: We put out to sea and can enjoy the allure of the green waters and the resort's 22 beaches. Aboard the schooner, we also have the opportunity to sample the delights of Brazil's tropical fruits and 'batidas', i.e. mixes of cachaça (Brazil's firewater made from sugar-cane), sugar and assorted fruit juices. Being on terra firma again, we have lunch in a typical restaurant. In the afternoon we invite you to a leisurely walk along the town's narrow streets lined with fancy villas, colonial inns, posh pousadas and luxurious boutiques. Time flies and our guide will sound the departure. We shall be back in Rio by 7 p.m.
