Fifteen cities with more than a million people and 1,642 unique destinations in a country without boundaries. It is a place with a variety of climates and cultures that provide the perfect environment for a diverse and authentic hospitality portfolio, connected with local traditions and recognized for an outstanding and warm personal service. It’s not easy to choose the best destinations in the Brazilian portfolio, among so much natural beauty, history, culture, and business and so many beaches, carnivals, and investment centers, as well as cosmopolitan cities. Selecting only a few is impossible.
However, over the years, Marriott has been able to build its presence in this Latin American giant and discover unique growth experiences with its visitors. Each of these cities was chosen by Marriott, not only for their ideal characteristics for the properties, but to highlight the most important aspects of the Brazilian culture, so visitors can have a great time while crafting their own wonderful stories. Here are some of the reasons why Brazil is a top-tier destination.
Where Diversity Defines Destination
Given its tremendous size, Brazil has countless destinations filled with a historic past, including the urban vibe of Paulista Avenue in the heart of Sao Paulo, which spreads along about 2 miles of dazzling shops, restaurants, and exclusive corporate buildings; the magnificent beaches of Recife; the splendid view from the Cristo Redentor of Río de Janeiro; the biggest port on the east coast of South America in the city of Santos; and a wonderful stroll through Parque Farroupilha in Porto Alegre. Brazil is a destination suited for all tastes and preferences in the Americas.
More Connections for Seamless Travel
Brazil has the second-most airports and airstrips in the world, after the United States. Home to more than 4,100 airports, Brazil makes for an excellent hub for easy air travel. As of June 2019, citizens from the U.S., Canada, Japan, and Australia don’t need a travel visa to visit Brazil.
Connecting domestic and short-range flights, Brazil provides easy access to other countries in South America. Hosting more than 6.5 million tourists a year and more than 50 million domestic connections, Brazil is a true giant!

Bleisure With Unstoppable Nature
It’s not uncommon to see travelers add some leisure activities during their business trips. This is actually getting more and more common — the "bleisure" trips. The Iguazu Falls, the Amazon Rainforest, and more than 2.3 million acres of coral reefs that form a beautiful arch in the Atlantic Ocean — they contribute to one of the largest natural paradises on the planet. Large financial centers are intertwined with wildlife refuges that define one of the best destinations in Latin America for bleisure.
Evolution of Secondary Cities
Secondary cities represent new destinations for business travelers, while at the same time offering more options to host great events at an affordable cost. New ventures, business centers, and urban complexes emerge in cities along the coast and offer new experiences for visitors and businesses. Parks, restaurants, bars ,and event destinations are the perfect environment for the main digital economy hub of the Americas.
