Brazil More than Rio

Brazil More than Rio
If you think of Brazil and tourism I can nearly guarantee Rio de Janeiro will be the first place to pop into your head.

The city is likely to be the top choice for anyone planning some cheap travel to the South American country and if you're staying in hostels there you should check out the famed Copacabana beach.

However, Brazil is an enormous country and there's plenty of other places that you might want to consider if you're heading there.

Vibecke Lykke Olsen is the co-founder of ViaMar Groupo - a property developer - and she reckons that Pipa is a great place for tourists.

Apparently its "spectacular beauty" makes it an ideal spot for beach holidays, while it isn't too far from Natal so you have the benefits of a big city nearby too.

"You get everything - restaurants and cafes - it's a bustling little town," she said.

The World Cup finals are being held in Brazil in 2014, so that's sure to attract some interest, but why wait until then?
