Unless you're one of those eternal optimists, most of us here in Canada are getting pretty darn sick of winter! It doesn't help that seemingly every week there's a new cold weather alert that makes us just dread leaving our houses at all. It's times like these that we can plan our escape. If you've ever wanted to witness pink dolphins swimming in the Amazon river or dance the night away at Carnival in Rio, then this is your chance!

Right now, you can get insane deals on flights from Toronto to Brazil. This South American destination is home to the Amazon Rainforest, vibrant cities and boasts some of the most famous beaches in the world.

Trade in your snow boots for flip-flops and give yourself a vacation that will lift your spirits and ignite your imagination. Whether you want to sip caipirinhas on the beach at sunset or have an unforgettable outdoor adventure, it's hard to go wrong on a trip to Brazil! Save big on your flights by booking ASAP.

Here's how to get the deal

Use Google Flights to search for flights between Toronto (YYZ) to Sao Paulo (GRU) or Rio de Janeiro (SDU). Look for dates in February, March, April, May and you'll find flights for less than $500! I searched for flights between Friday, April 5 and Friday, April 19 and found flights for $492. When you're looking on Google Flights, be sure to open the calendar and look through the departure dates to find the cheapest deals. If you're flexible on your vacation days, then you can really hit the jackpot here with cheap flights!

Via Google Flights

One thing to keep in mind if you're travelling to Brazil is that Canadians require a visa to enter the country! You can get an 'e-visa' online and it costs about $40 USD plus service fees.
