The tourist fame of Brazil is known worldwide. The country has a wide variety of options, and for some travelers it may even be difficult to choose between cosmopolitan cities and natural beauty. The good news is that there is a city in the state of Rio de Janeiro that manages to unite the best of both worlds: Búzios! The city, with approximately 31 thousand inhabitants, has everything the tourist seeks: from beautiful natural landscapes to renowned restaurants and bustling nightlife.
Armação dos Búzios (or just Buzios) was just a fishermen village until the French actress, Brigitte Bardot, put the city in the world spotlight. To this day it is not known how Bardot discovered this hidden paradise, but the fact is that, since its discovery, the city has not stopped growing. This location has approximately 250 hotels, 126 restaurants, 6 nightclubs and 23 beaches, as well as the famous tourist attractions. So prepare yourself: Búzios is a destination that requires much more than a single weekend.
Beginning with the natural beauties, it is surrounded by beautiful beaches and landscapes. The closest to the center is Ferradura Beach, which has a calm sea and is ideal for children, and also has a vast infrastructure of bars and restaurants. For those looking for more adventure, Geribá and Praia Brava beaches are the ideal places. In order not to waste time traveling from one beach to another, it is worth the time and money to invest in an "aquatáxi" which, besides being fast and economical, provides an incredible tour through the blue and crystalline waters of the Búzios sea.
Unlike most coastal cities in Brazil, the fun in Búzios does not end with the sunset. The city has a wide range of nightlife attractions. Among them, the most famous is the walk through Rua das Pedras. Located in the center of the city, this street has the most varied shops and restaurants, as well as trendy nightclubs. The atmosphere is very inviting with live music.
Búzios is a destination that has everything to please every taste. It is no wonder that the city is among the most sought after destinations in Brazil. Be it family or alone, to rest or have fun, to know Búzios is an unforgettable opportunity to make a remarkable trip, and certainly unforgettable.
