More Brazil Travel Information

If you're looking for a wild ride — whether a hot night out in a pulsing city or a once-in-a-lifetime trip through the rainforest — Brazil is for you. The natural beauty of this country is staggering. You can see the Amazon River valley, pristine white sandy beaches, breathtaking mountains, even the cliffs in tropical Rio — there's something for everyone and it's all exotic. There's so much to see in Brazil in part because it is the fifth largest country in the world and borders every country in South America except Ecuador and Chile. From the rainforests in the north to the central marshlands and savanna and the major metropolitan areas of the south, Brazil offers great diversity. Want to try your hand at nearly every kind of sport imaginable? They've got it, including golf, scuba diving, rafting, free flight, hiking and even beach volleyball and bird watching. Love the arts, history, culture and nightlife of the city? Look no further than São Paulo, the largest city in the southern hemisphere, where the cuisine is varied and sophisticated, theatre is eclectic, soccer is the favored sport, dancing is almost a must, and music is king. If you have the chance to come to Brazil for Carnaval, of course, Rio de Janeiro is the place to be. Carnaval, taking place during the week prior to Ash Wednesday, is the ultimate way to experience Rio — a giant party lasting many days with parades in nearly every corner of the city. At other times of the year, the gorgeous, white sandy beaches and pulsing nightlife keep Rio on the must-visit list. If you're looking for a tropical vacation spot with a Latin beat and exotic adventures you'll never forget, visit Brazil.
