The most romantic time of the year has come, and with it the desire to live special moments with your loved one. To help lovers choose the perfect places to visit together, MaxMilhas, a travel platform born from a love story, has prepared destination tips for couples traveling or already planning their next trips.
MaxMilhas CEO and Founder Max Oliveira explains how the business came about and why Valentine’s Day is so important to the company. “Once I went to buy a plane ticket to meet my girlfriend who lived in another city, and the site gave an error. I immediately tried a new purchase and was amazed that the price had increased so much, but I realized that the cost of a ticket with miles did not change. From this came the idea of creating a company that is an intermediary for people who want to sell miles and who want to buy tickets cheaper. Today, Monica and I are married, we have two daughters. It was from this love story that the goal of getting people to travel more and better was born. And that makes this date special for us.” Check out destination tips for each type of couple!
For couples who dream of going further, visiting (or returning to) other countries, the first tip is the most romantic city in the world: Paris, France. The city of lights brings a different and special atmosphere where couples can enjoy the view of the Eiffel Tower, cafes and restaurants to enjoy French cuisine, among many other tours.
For couples who enjoy a more hectic schedule, New York in the United States is recommended. Whether it’s shopping, visiting famous landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and Central Park, or even watching a show on Broadway, there are plenty of options for sightseeing.
Anyone looking for beautiful beaches outside of Brazil should visit Punta Cana. The Caribbean region of the Dominican Republic is a romantic destination with great options for couples tours, especially to resorts recognized worldwide for their excellence.
Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, is also a great choice, especially for couples who want to experience a different culture without too much bureaucracy. Indeed, to travel to a country bordering Brazil, you do not need a passport or visa, a valid identity card is enough. There you can find historic buildings inspired by 20th century European architecture and a great quality of life. The city is quiet, full of trees and surrounded by beaches.
Having an exciting and relaxing experience in the midst of Brazil’s natural diversity is what many couples want. Therefore, it is recommended to choose Jalapan, a cerrado region located between Tocantins, Piauí, Bahia and Maranhao. Ecotourism is the strong point of this place, which has several waterfalls, natural pools, ferveduro and dunes. There are also extreme sports options for the more adventurous.
region Chapada Diamantina, Bahia, is made up of over 20 municipalities and is home to the diversity of several Brazilian biomes. Among the main attractions are rivers, waterfalls, trails, canyons and caves. Fumasa Waterfall and Pai Inacio Hill are not to be missed!
Lencois Maranhensis is home to natural pools that form one of the most beautiful landscapes for those who love to contemplate nature. Sunset on the dunes makes the landscape even more romantic.
Manaus, the capital of the state of Amazonas, offers the opportunity to discover part of the largest rainforest in the world. The rich biodiversity is one of the main attractions of the Amazon region, which provides, for example, a tour of the confluence of the Negro and Solimões rivers, swimming with dolphins, as well as getting to know the local culture and cuisine, marked by a strong local influence.

Fortaleza in Ceara is another beach destination that is in high demand among tourists. One of the most famous water parks in Brazil is located there: Beach Park. In addition, the city has many opportunities to discover such as Praia do Futuro, Feirinha Beira Mar, the Caxas Museum and the Dragao do Mar Art and Culture Center.
A buggy ride through the dunes and beaches of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte is the perfect itinerary for a trip for two. A visit to Morro do Carec, the landmark of the city or the largest cashew tree in the world, is also a great leisure option.
No wonder Recife is always among the most visited places. In addition to the beaches, the capital of Pernambuco is valued for its culture and gastronomy. Recife Antigo, for example, has colonial buildings, piazzas, and museums such as Cais do Certan that will take you on a journey through Brazilian history.
