A few hours’ drive east of Rio, you will come to the chic, almost Mediterranean resort of Búzios.

The town’s cobbled streets echo its past as a quiet fishing village, but Búzios was put on the map by Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s and has since become a lively but relaxed place.

Experience Búzios

Hotel Vila d'Este, Buzios
Búzios retains a pleasant atmosphere, and makes for a good beach extension to any visit to Rio.

Situated on a small peninsula that is scalloped by sandy beaches, you can snorkel, scuba, island hop on schooners or beach hop on buggies, lie in the sun or make the most of the cafes, restaurants and shops.

There are several lovely hotels and pousadas scattered throughout the town, as well as the ones mentioned below we also recommend the Colonna Park, The Pearl, the Ferradura Private Resort and the Pousada Hibiscus Beach.
