- Handcrafted Art: Some places that are visited during this trip offers a great variety of local handcrafted art. We suggest you to bring some extra money in small bills for buying it.
- Drinks: We suggest you tasting our typical drink: the Caipirinha, a typical cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar and lime. Cachaça is Brazil’s most common distilled alcoholic beverage. Like rum, it is made from sugarcane. Cachaça is made from sugarcane alcohol, obtained from the fermentation of sugarcane juice which is afterwards distilled.
