Uma Bela Caminhada: Hiking on Ilha Grande thumbnail

Ilha Grande stole my heart -- and it also gave it a workout. Cardio and adventure fans alike will flip for the hiking opportunities on this untamed Brazilian island. With sixteen marked trails of varying length and difficulty, we were spoiled for choice when it came to which corner of Ilha Grande to wander. As we were hoping…

My Kind of Paradise On Ilha Grande thumbnail

I guess I have a thing for seedy islands. A pirates lair, a leper colony, and a penitentiary for political prisoners -- much like Koh Tao in Thailand and Isla de Coiba in Panama, Ilha Grande in Brazil has quite the illicit past. And much like those islands before it, this one also managed to steal…

A Brazilian Pearl: Where to Eat, Stay and Play in Paraty thumbnail

I already confessed that my time in Paraty was a washout. But while five days of rain followed by three hours of sun was frustrating, it did leave us plenty of quality time to eat ourselves silly, lounge about in our accommodation, and look for a few creative activities that didn't require a dose of Vitamin D.

Forty-Eight Hours in Vila Madalena: São Paulo’s Worst Kept Secret thumbnail

When it comes to the first few days after a major festival, I have just a few key priorities in mind: rest up, recharge, and reconnect to the world. The latter can be a serious drag when it means coming back to an overflowing inbox and a built up to-do list. But Heather and I knew exactly…

Surviving Tomorrowland Brasil thumbnail

The Survival Series is a resource highlighting my favorite festivals and parties around the world. Previously I’ve featured Burning Man, an epic week-long social experiment in the desert, Sunjam, an intimate annual rave on a deserted Central American island, The Full Moon Party, Southeast Asia’s most infamous monthly blowout, and Tomorrowland Belgium, one of Europe's most sought-after…

How Much Does Tomorrowland Brasil Cost? thumbnail

International music festivals don't come cheap. But exactly how many dollars do you have to drop to attend Tomorrowland? The answer varies wildly -- I've met festival goers who get by on the cheap by pitching their own tent, bringing in food and generally being frugal, and I've met straight up party people who drop what I…
