A Visit to Santos, Brazil

I am not sure which might be more loved by Brazilians; coffee or football. What better way to dive into the local flavor of the region, than a visit to the Brazilian Coffee Museum. Located in the former Official Coffee Exchange building, the Museu do Café offers exhibits intended to give information about the history of coffee in Brazil. Besides nearly 500 trophies, there are life-size photos, banners, documents, uniforms, and soccer balls, making the Santos Football Museum an interesting stop. Santos Botanical Gardens displays over 100 species of orchids and is home to a few peacocks, iguanas and turtles.
