You will fly into Recife, which is situated on Brazil's north east coast. You will be driven up to spend several days in a boutique hotel in the village of Praia da Pipa, near Natal. This area contains miles of deserted beaches, as well as lively bars and restaurants in the village; you will have our recommendations for the best ones to visit, and will for every place on the trip. On your first morning local character Didier will take you out on his catamaran for a day long cruise of the bays and lagoons. You will then have the opportunity to drive around some of the huge sand dunes on another day. Next, you will fly to Fernando de Noronha, an island in the Atlantic off the coast of Brazil. The ocean here is so translucent that the sand below it can be seen from satellites, and the air quality has been measured as the second purest on earth, second only to Antarctica. This is a truly magical place and is the ideal location to unwind at the beginning of your honeymoon. You will stay in the smartest hotel on the island and will be given a jeep for the duration of your stay so you can explore all of the gorgeous beaches - many of which are inhabited by dolphins and turtles - at your leisure.
You will then return to the mainland and spend a couple of nights in the nearby colonial town of Olinda. There is a lot of stunning architecture to appreciate, and plenty of history to learn about. It is also a very relaxed town and the perfect place to reflect on the gorgeous beaches that you have enjoyed on your honeymoon.
Finally you will fly to Manaus, the capital of the Amazon. Here, you will embark a private seaplane for the flight of a lifetime over the Amazon. You will be cruising at an altitude of just 500 feet so will have incredible views of one of the planet's last great wildernesses. You will land on the river outside your jungle lodge, where you will stay for 4 nights. Every day you will be able to enjoy activities ranging from treks in the jungle to visits to native villages or even piranha fishing on the river. At the end of your stay the seaplane will take you on another unbelievable flight over the Amazon on the return journey to Manaus - the perfect end to the honeymoon of a lifetime.
