Búzios is a small city in the State of Rio de Janeiro located on the Costa do Sol about 173 km northeast of Rio de Janeiro city. It was once a little fisherman’s village but has now turned into a tourism hotspot in the State of Rio de Janeiro. Tourists from all over the world visit Búzios to enjoy the 25 beaches and bays of the peninsula which are counted among the most beautiful ones in Brazil.
The town got an international touch not only through the tourists visiting but also through immigrants from all over the world who appreciate the amenities Búzios has to offer, the maritime climate, the diversified gastronomy, the proximity to Rio de Janeiro City and at the same time the ambience of a tiny fishermen’s village, which is preserved until today. You will not find big hotel complexes on the beach, instead you are staying in small family owned pousadas (inns).
Besides the beaches and the sea you can also enjoy the beautiful underwater world of Búzios and exercise a lot of different aquatic sports. There are also many options if you like shopping or like to have a lively nightlife.
