Belo Horizonte: Is one of the new exponents of LGBTQIA+ tourism. With increasing investments, it has participated in events in the segment to show its openness to diversity. Around Belo Horizonte region we find the historic cities of Brazil, full of culture, art, history and some legendary parties and festivals!
Florianopolis: In the southern region of the country, Florianópolis is certainly the highlight. “Ilha da Magia” (The Magic Island) has been working its magic with the LGBTQIA+ community for many years. So much so that in 2012 the International Association of LGBTQIA+ Tourism, held its annual convention in the city. With amazing beaches, good nightlife and a very unique island feeling ambience.
Salvador: As the most internationally known city in the Northeast, Salvador welcomes diversity. Crowded during its famous Carnival, the city has good weather all year round and, for the LGBTQIA+ public, nothing like an excuse to put on beach clothes and enjoy the sun, the music and the laid-back lifestyle.
