Brazil is the largest and most geographically diverse country in all of South America, Brazil boasts an abundance of activities, a friendly people, numerous UNESCO sites and a whole host of sites and sounds that are not to be missed.
All eyes were on Brazil recently, as citizens from across the globe gathered there to celebrate The 2014 FIFA World Cup and then the 2016 Rio Summer Games. Despite a bevy of negative U.S. media, Brazil did what we knew it would– rose to the occasion and made both events global festivities no one will soon forget.
From the world’s most famous waterfall and biggest wetlands, to its mightiest river and largest rainforest, Brazil is one of the most unique and diverse places (ecologically and culturally) on the planet. Travelers love exploring unimaginable beaches and some of the most beautiful flora and fauna available anywhere.
Nature lovers will revel in the seemingly impossible Iguassu Falls– a natural wonder of the world with 275 waterfalls cascading almost 200 feet. It truly is one of Mother Nature’s greatest gifts. You’ll be humbled by the diverse and expansive Amazon Rainforest. This dense jungle is filled with more than 2,000 species of mammals and birds, as well as 40,000 plant species and one-fifth of the world’s fresh water. The Pantanal Biosphere Reserve is another natural site designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site and considered to be the third largest environmental reserve in the world. Even with all the natural wonders in Brazil, you won’t want to miss coastal cities like Rio de Janeiro, Salvador and Sao Paulo for their cultural diversity, history and unique song and dance customs. If it’s watersports or a unabashed beachside relaxation you’re after, you’ll love Buzios or Florianopolis (recently ranked as a Top 10 city in the world) and the World Heritage island chain of Fernando de Noronha– a hot bed for SCUBA diving, surfing and soaking up the sun. Only 700 guests are allowed on the main island each day, so you’ll feel at peace in the surrounding beauty.
