the nice is to post the place's name and explain why --- o ideal é postar o nome do lugar e dizer por quê ;>

Ouro Preto - Minas Gerais
Why? It's such a lovely city and tells so much about Brazilian history! You'll feel like you're in a movie... Not to mention the artists and the things they can do with soap-stone.

São Paulo - SP
Why? Because it's like NYC in South America! - and that's where I come from! - the nightlife is great, and this city NEVER EVER sleeps. Paulista Avenue is amazing, and the city centre is messy, but unique. Great architecture.

Ilha Bela - SP, Ubatuba - SP
Why? Beautiful beaches, great, warm weather, coconut water, caipirinhas and sea food. Beware of all the bugs/insects, though. ;)

Rio de Janeiro - RJ
Why? Because it is Rio. It's pretty, warm, and dangerously sweet.

Will think of other places and write more about them. I, myself, haven't been all over my own country, so I don't want to talk about places I haven't yet been to.

It's a nice city with something for everyone. It has a good art community, lots of parks, and I especially like the Museo do Olho.

So much to explore -- pristine nature scene -- many beautiful beaches, places for hiking and mountain biking. Good restaurants -- fresh sea food. ...Ice cream. Pretty good for shopping. Lots of places for tourists to stay. You don't feel like you're in a huge city, either.

Very interesting information!
Does anyone have any suggestions for any cities to visit during the months of June to September? Maybe special festas will be going on? I will be in Brazil during that period for the first time :D

Thanks in advance!

Ilha Comprida, SP
In my opinion, it's a beautiful place -- smaller city, and simple, calm, beautiful, seemingly endless beach.

Ibitipoca (Parque Estadual) - MG
A really stunning place for those who like exploring caves and enjoying the beauty of waterfalls, rivers and lakes.

A wonderfull beautifull place 80km from Salvador on the beach.
Small place, but lovely, peacefull, a lot to do and see all around: lakes, natural protected parcs, capoeira, fishing, lovely beaches never ending, marin tirtules, Sapiranga reserve.
Nice people there also, but I would recomend not to come by the summer because to hot and croweded full of brazilian tourists from all the country.
