Beaches, late night parties, gorgeous people…who wouldn’t want to go to Brazil any time of year? Throw in the 2014 world cup and you have the party of the century. From June 12 to July 13, futbol fanatics from around the world will descend for the country’s second ever world cup. Expect late nights. Expect gorgeous sunsets beat only by spectacular sunrises. Expect beautiful beaches (perfect for sleeping on when you run out of cash). Expect lots of other backpackers. And most of all, expect to have your expectations exceeded.
