Caipirinha, a Brazilian drink to share with friends
Hotel Porto Bay Buzios caipirinha

Brazil is colour, dance, genuine smiles, wonderful cities and flavours . .. ando also is the land of caipirinha — a drink that is as wonderful as everything else !! The real caipirinha always tastes like joy and the whole world really wants to taste it, either in its original version or its delicious variations. The important thing to keep in mind is to make a toast to the good times, whenever possible: on hot days and nights, on the terraces, on the beach, at parties or among friends, before or after a harvest feijoada (or a succulent barbecue) or simply whenever you feel like it !!

rio de janeiro

a marvellous city, nature, beach, the hustle and bustle, Bossa Nova!!

Rio de Janeiro

What a marvellous city... between the Samba and the Bossa Nova!!

The rhythms, the heat and the joy are a part of this city with a unique landscape... between the Corcovado and the Pão de Açúcar one can see Copacabana, Leblon and Ipamena!! Breathe the happiness of the Samba, the Bossa Nova and Carnival...

It was discovered by the Portuguese in 1502 on their first expedition to Brazil. They mistook the sea for a river and, in amazement, named what they saw Rio de Janeiro. Rio because they thought they were at the mouth of one; January because the expedition started in that month.
