Buzios

Overview

Located 105 miles from Rio de Janeiro a short, pleasant 3½ hour trip will take you to the peninsula of Búzios - home to more than 20 magnificent beaches with crystal-clear waters which are in perfect harmony with sculpted landscape and exotic vegetation. Originally settled by European pirates and slave traders, this historically diverse city enjoyed periods of prosperity and emerged as one of Brazil’s most picturesque fishing villages. In more recent years, the actress Brigitte Bardot popularised the town when she visited in the 60's. As one of the most beautiful areas in Brazil, it is famed for its unique combination of rustic charm, distinctive architecture, incredible allure, and sophisticated restaurants and boutiques. Every year thousands of visitors come from all corners of the world to enjoy this Brazilian beach paradise.

Being environmentally accountable is a crucial part of our organisation. Chimu is currently striving towards using less paper, taking several initiatives to do so and tracking our progress along the way. Our goal: A paperless organisation. For this reason, all information given to you will be sent electronically.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore remain culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
