Brazil features highly for travellers

With a booming economy, rising house prices and huge demand for property, Brazil is one of the world’s property hotspots.  If you are considering buying a property in Brazil, an increase in tourist activity could also help you profit through renting your apartment or villa to supplement your income.

Now, a Daily Telegraph travel writer has included Brazil on a list of the top ten places to add to your 2011 holiday wish list.

Brazil – one of the top ten places to visit in 2011, says The Daily Telegraph

One of the main ways to profit from buying an overseas property is though letting it.  With increased numbers of tourists heading to Brazil over the next few years, there could be a lucrative rentals market in the country.

Annabelle Thorpe, writing in The Daily Telegraph, said: “South America is set to hit the big time, too, next year, with Brazil gearing up for its World Cup/Olympics double whammy — it will host these events in 2014 and 2016 respectively.”

She also included Brazil in the newspaper’s ‘top ten places to put on your 2011 travel wish list’.

Visit the Bahia region

Specifically, the newspaper encourages tourists to explore some of Brazil’s lesser known regions.  Ms Thorpe says: “Now is the time to discover this vast and varied country, where new regions are opening up to international tourism.  Boipeba Island, off the Bahia coast, is typical, a natural paradise comprising Atlantic rainforest, sand dunes and mangroves, all edged with stunning coconut-palmed beaches sheltered by reefs.

“Life is slow and unhurried on Boipeba; fishing is still the main industry, it is home to a rich diversity of wildlife and the whole island is free of cars — making it a gloriously peaceful destination.”

It is possible to snap up a fully furnished  property in the Bahia region for as little as £60,000.  You will also benefit from rental guarantees for two years.
