I am going to Brazil for my Honeymoon in January. We are spending a four days in Rio, two days at the Iguaçu Falls (Argentinean Side), and four days at some beachy resort. Although we usually travel urban, my fiancé wants to have a relaxing beach be part of the trip.
So, any recommendations for restaurants in Rio or Iguaçu would be welcome, but I am most concerned about the food around the Brazilian resorts. Right now our choices are Buzios or Florianopolis (I am open to other suggestions) and I am leaning towards Florianopolis. Am I sending myself into eating purgatory? I saw about a half dozen posts about Florianopolis food and they were all at least three years old. Any new thoughts?
Also, I am thinking about staying at a fancy pants resort (Costão do Santinho) where dinner is provided. I have never done something like that before and am worried that I am going to waste four eating days eating shoddy international cuisine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
