If you want a photo with a 60’s film Star who made this fishing village famous and the day if you don’t see the statue of Brigitte then you haven’t been to Buzios!!!

The French star came here in the 60s, and Rio's beautiful people soon followed. Fifty years on, it is still Brazil's coolest resort. As far as thank-you gifts go, this is a good one. The Brazilian seaside resort of Búzios honoured its favourite holiday-maker with...More
