Christmas is a time for magic and wonder, a time to celebrate, be merry and act like a child again. Christmas is different everywhere in the world and while that does not mean celebrating the holiday in one place is better than the other, there are some places in particular that make the holiday all the more special. South America is a huge place with some fantastic areas to spend your Christmas holiday.
1. Paraty, Brazil
Located between Rio and Sao Paulo, this little city may not sound like much, but if you are after a romantic and beautiful Christmas then this is the place to go. The Portuguese architecture will don twinkling lights and with easy access to the rainforest and the backdrop of the white, sandy, pristine beaches, it will be a Christmas holiday that you will remember for a long time.
