After FI and I determined that we would not be able to afford a Eurpopean honeymoon, we really sat down and talked about why we wanted a European honeymoon so bad in the first place! Turns out, we just want to SEE the world, and we’ve been most places in the caribbean/beach areas. So we came up with Brazil! I was temporarily put off because we thought that the World Cup would be in Rio for June 2013, but its June 2014! Yay!!I have to admit, even though I HATE TWILIGHT, I thought their honeymoon location was out of this world gorgeous. (I was also a little peeved to find out my Enzoani was in the movie too! UGH!)
Has anyone ever honeymooned in Brazil? Do you have any exotic recommendations?

I’ve not honeymooned in Brazil but traveled there a few times. You will have no shortage of exotic, romantic, exciting and relaxing things to do, no matter which city you end up in!
I would most definitely recommend taking the time between now and the honeymoon to learn some Portugese. Like many other countries, Brazil has its share of bad guys who haunt the major tourist destinations, and the easiest way to identify yourself as a tourist is by not knowing even the most basic words. If you go further away from the touristy areas, it gets harder to find someone who speaks English at all. Your trip will be a lot more enjoyable and a lot less stressing if you spend a little time now with the Rosetta Stone software or some other language-learning tool. Trust me— no matter what country you’re in, you do not want to be the one whipping the translation book out of your purse and fumbling over how to ask for directions!

I’m fluent in spanish, but I’m planning on picking up some Portuguese! I heard they’re very similar, so even if I just speak spanish they should pretty much understand me….I went to Costa Rica last year, it was wonderful!
