This charming resort town not far from Rio is slowly becoming a popular destination with travelers to Brazil thanks to its beaches, great nightlife, and laidback lifestyle. Buzios hotels offer a good choice of accommodation from small, family-run guest houses to lavish five-star beach resorts.
Buzios itself is only small and most people usually arrive by bus from Rio which is just 176 kilometers away. From the pier in town it's possible to organize a sailing trip on one of the old schooners. These normally depart daily and take people on a leisurely cruise down the coast, stopping at secluded beaches. Diving is another option in Buzios with a choice of reputable dive centers running daily trips to different dive sites as well as offering courses for those wishing to learn.
Dining in Buzios involves an interesting style of buffet where the diner pays based on the total weight of the food chosen. Seafood is delicious and fresh here and an evening at one of the beachfront restaurants is a great way to enjoy classic Brazilian cuisine in a wonderful setting. Many Buzios hotels also have attached restaurants and breakfast is often included in the room rate.
