Curitiba, Brazil — 21 nights

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Curitiba: Santa Monica Clube de Campo (in Colombo), Quatro Barras (Familia Fardo Vinicola, Morro Pao de Lo, &more) and Colonia Mergulhao - Caminho do Vinho (in Sao Jose Dos Pinhais). Spend the 12th (Wed) exploring nature at Parque Estadual de Vila Velha. And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, walk around Tangua Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santuario Tabor Magnificat, and examine the collection at Deutscher Wald / Bosque Alemao.

For photos and other tourist information, go to the Curitiba day trip planning site.
