Brazzil Joins Pearl Travel Guides to Bring You a Brazil You Haven’t Seen Before

Brazzil TravelBrazzil Travel is a new publication from the Brazzil group of sites. It has been developed in association with Pearl Travel Guides, “guides for responsible independent travelers who want to discover the real Brazil and enjoy authentic experiences.”

The site will feature a growing number of mini-guides to Brazilian destinations. Each will then be linked to a dedicated site like Recife Guide (www.recife.pearltravelguides.com).

These sites, developed and maintained by a growing number of local correspondents, will contain rich and deep information to help the tourist get the most out of their visit. Correspondents will also understand the needs and wishes of independent travelers.

Pearl Travel Guides will also contain details of themed tourist routes, tours and itineraries that are researched and developed by the publisher. Each will be delivered by tri-lingual guides who have been trained and accredited.

These guides will be employed by carefully selected local operators who are licensed by Pearl Travel Guides. The aim is to raise the standards of tours and ensure good quality experiences are delivered.

Each tour is also being developed according to sustainable tourism
guidelines that will ensure the benefits of tourism are retained by local people, and that local people, their culture and their traditions are all respected. The publisher also plans to try and revive interest and pride in local skills and traditions where interest may be fading.

The founder of Pearl Travel Guides, Paul Barnett, is a 43 year old British guy with strong Brazilian connections for many years. He has a background in marketing and sees massive potential for growth in the Brazilian tourism industry.

At the same time he is aware then tourism can bring good and bad changes. By creating the guides and tours he hopes to show, by example, that well managed tourism can, and should, produce lasting benefits to local people, especially those in the poorest areas.

He also aims to show that there is far more to Brazil than beaches and Carnaval, extending tourism to rural areas that are rich in culture and heritage.

These ideas, and this vision, are in-keeping with those of the founders of the Brazzil publications which also explore the real, authentic and alternative images of Brazil, rather than just the clichés and stereotypes that ignore the diversity and complexity of the nation that is Brazil.

    Addressing Comments
    Let me address comments made so far. The Brazzil Travel site initially has guides that introduce the the key tourist destinations. These will be added to as the site evolves. And each will become haver deeper and richer content. take a look at http://www.recife.pearltravelguides.com to see what what this means. The site has far more information about the region than any other site in English and much of the content is original.

    Another point to mention is that the article was as much a statement of the direction that pearl Travel Guides is taking, rather than claims about what it is today.

    To date many industry players are focused on mass-tourism and some are little more than a taxi service to the beaches. Having said that, there are some very positive signs of change, but the non-portuguese speaking independent traveller is very badly served today.

    As the network grows, and we gather more in-depth information from local correspondents things will start to change. But there is much work to do before the tourism industry in Brazil is acheiving anything like it´s potential.

    I hope you will aprreciate the developments as they come.

    Ok, so I go to the site, and all I see is the same metro areas advertised on all the other travel guides.

    Major fail
    It’s pretty arrogant to say “the Brazil You Haven’t Seen Before” when this travel information is available ALREADY elsewhere on the internet.

    Sorry, try again.
