The Brazil with Toddlers Tour is a 10-day itinerary, exceptionally designed for parents traveling with small children. In the states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo there are many suitable places to spend a relaxing beach holiday with babies and small children. In case you would like to visit a bit, we have included short sightseeing escapes to wonderful places, while the babies can stay with a professional nanny at the hotel. Apart from offering tons of family-friendly activities, the good thing about Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo is that these cities are accessible directly on several international connections – no need to exchange complicated flights while travelling with a baby. Spend a quality time on beautiful beaches with azure waters while we make sure all your needs as travelling parents are taken care of. The program includes accommodation at small boutique hotels, you can choose hotels with a spa and all the needed amenities and services. Board options and an all-inclusive board can be arranged. The trip can be done the other way around or as a loop, arriving and departing from the same airport (GRU or GIG), and we will adjust the trip depending where you arrive.
