4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS
This little fishing-village-turned-seaside-resort 200 km up the coast from downtown Rio de Janeiro, is tailor-made for a getaway in style, something that is mostly missing from the tourism options around Rio. Now that Búzios has been built up with shops, restaurants and inns, the place has most of the comforts of Rio. The charm of Búzios lies in its good beaches and the fact that the little town probably has the highest ratio of restaurants-to-inhabitants of any place in Brazil, if not the world. The way to “do” Búzios is to take a room in one of the several dozen pousadas / hostels. Many of these pousadas are run or were founded by Europeans who found in Búzios an uncanny resemblance to the south coast of Portugal, Spain and France. A typical Búzios day begins around mid-morning. After a hearty breakfast - off to the beach - a choice from the popular ones such as Geribá, Ferradura or Ossos, where one will be able to buy beach side drinks, fried shrimp and oyster from venders and rent water equipment like lasers windsurf boards, kayaks or jet ski.
More deserted beaches are Tartaruga, Brava, João Fernandes and Forno. At night, an almost unlimited choice of eateries and a dozen good restaurants serve up fine dining. After dinner, bars with all types of entertainment and the after-dinner promenade in the little town center (foursquare blocks) are the most popular entertainment in the evening.
