LANGUAGE: People in Brazil speak Portuguese. BUT you will find people who speak English. Don’t worry brazilians are famous for their hospitality so they will help you get around.
FOOD and DRINKS: We recommend visiting a “Rodizio”, a never ending parade of grilled meats that only stops when you say so, it is the perfect barbecue experience and a classic for anyone who visits the country. For a taste of the sea you will want to try a “Moqueca”, fish, shrimp, diced tomatoes, onions and coriander are combined in a wonderful luscious stew, perfect for all clam chowder fans, take a leap and taste this treasure of the sea. If you have a sweet tooth you will definitely enjoy “Brigadeiros” they are Brazil’s take on chocolate truffles and they are delicious cocoa balls dipped in sprinkles or nuts, kids will love them.
