You name it, Brazil's got it. The largest country in South America will meet all expectations and then some. Sprawling cities, the beloved Amazon, cascading rivers, sun-kissed beaches, non-stop parties, tantalizing music, beautiful locals, eco-friendly luxury camps and so much more. Let your hair down, hop on a plane and come to Brazil. You'll leave with memorable stories to last a lifetime.
For the nature lovers, Brazil will easily satiate your green thumb. Iguaçu Falls, a natural wonder of the world with 275 waterfalls cascading 60 meters, is one of Mother Nature's greatest gifts. Be humbled by the diverse and expansive Amazon Rainforest, with its 2,000 species of birds and mammals, 40,000 plant species and 1/5 of the world's fresh water. The Pantanal Biosphere Reserve is considered to be a World Natural Heritage and is the third largest environmental reserve in the world.
Brazil's entire 8,500km (5,280m) of eastern coastline is devoted to beaches. The entire coast is sun, sand and surf. Each beach and cove has its own personality and attractions. The Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, a World Heritage site, is one of the most gorgeous beaches and an ideal spot for scuba diving. Take a yacht charter out and dive into the homes of fish, rays, eels, turtles, dolphins and more. Relax on Rio's famous beaches of Ipanema or Copacabana. From north to south, the coastline offers fantastic seaside restaurants, bars, secluded coves, vibrant party beaches, marinas, snorkeling spots, and serene, white ribbons perfect for enjoying a day under the sun.
If it's culture you're after, where to begin. Brazil's largest two cities, Sao Paolo and Rio de Janeiro, both groove to a samba beat. Sao Paolo is a cosmopolitan city and an international core for business and tourism. Moving north on the southeastern coast is Rio de Janeiro, possibly Brazil's best known megacity. Although Rio is not Brazil's capital (Brasilia is the well-planned and business-designed capital), it definitely is the cultural center for music and of course, Carnival.
Carnival in Brazil is an absolute explosion of hedonistic delights and effervescent joy. Locals take to the streets in celebration of life with vibrant costumes, intricate parade floats and sound stages buzzing with infectious samba, bossa nova and choro beats. Take a deep breath, jump in and join in the party and celebrate love and life.
