Buzios Tours & Vacations
Located in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Buzios has become one of Brazil’s premier resort destinations famous for hosting over twenty-three beaches. Beaches on the west coast offer calm waters while the east coast faces the open sea providing a playground for surfers and water sport enthusiasts on Brazil tours.
Originally inhabited by the Tupinambás Indians during the 16th century, the French came to Buzios in the 17th century. The Portuguese eventually expelled the French and Buzios became popular amongst whalers. With the abolition of the slave trade in Brazil, Buzios was able to concentrate on agriculture and fishing and grew into a popular vacation spot for Rio’s wealthiest citizens. Despite this domestic popularity, it remained relatively unknown until the arrival of world-famous French actress Bridgette Bardot in 1964. Bardot had originally intended to vacation in Rio with her Brazilian boyfriend Bob Zagury, however, unable to hide from the paparazzi, Zagury took Bardot to Buzios to escape and in doing so put the city on the map.
Despite the influx of tourists after Bardot’s visit, Buzios was able to maintain the feel of a small fishing village. Visitors on a Brazil vacation package come to take advantage of the beaches and enjoy a variety of water sports including swimming, snorkelling and diving at Ferradura Beach while Geribá Beach is known for surfing. There are also opportunities to experience windsurfing, enjoy fine cuisine and shop.
