I have travelled all over the world and never found a resourt with the Ambiance of Buzios, There are different beaches for every mood, if you feel like surfing or just sitting in a beach front restaurant. The Night life around Rua dos Pedras is great with loads of good bars and Restaurants with a couple of world class night clubs too. The people are really friendly and will do anything they casn to help you. Bridget Bardot discovered this Paradise but it is still the best kept secret in the world. Not the cheapest place in Brazil but still cheap by European standards, My wife and I fell in love with it in 2002 and bought a house beside Ferradura beach, Handy for the town but still quiet enough to be tranquil. 2 1/2 hours from Rio but with almost no crime. This is the place where the Beautiful people of Brazil want to be seen. At weekends all the wealthy people of Rio leave their city to the tourists and head out to Buzios for the real fun. I go there three times a year for 3 weeks.
