It's rather a shock to the system to return from the tropical rainforest of Brazil to this freezing cold. It was my first expedition to South America and I must say, I'm hooked! We spent our time in the Serra do Mar State Park which is on the coast, half way between Rio and Sao Paolo. I cannot recommend it highly enough: deserted golden beaches with turquoise sea, crystal clear natural swimming pools at the bottom of stunning waterfalls in the rainforest, a botanist's honeypot of amazing plants and a twitcher's paradise of colourful birds. Absolutely fabulous!

No sharks but we did have to swim across a river to reach our favourite beach...they assured us there were no crocs
