About Brazil

Home to Carnaval and birthplace of the feisty sambaBrazil is a country with an infectious effervescent energy that will awaken the senses of any weary traveller.

Brazilians often refer to Brazil as a continent rather than a country. This exaggeration is easy to understand, as the fifth largest country in the world, with a population of 200 million, Brazil is South America’s giant. Although Brazil also effortlessly stands apart from the rest of the continent. Speaking Portuguese rather than Spanish, and with a vast mixture of ethnic roots Brazil is the least typical country of Latin America. South America’s impressive melting pot, Brazil has Portuguese, German, Italian, Eastern European, African, Japanese and Amerindian ethnicities present throughout the country.

Southeast of the country lies magnificent Rio de Janeiro, a city brimming with vitality and astounding scenery. Nestled between the golden beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana, and forest-clad mountains, overseen by the iconic Christ the Redeemer standing atop Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro is the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City). However Rio has its rival cities, with metropolises such Brasilia (the country’s capital) and São Paulo, the striking Amazonian city ofManaus, and charming towns such as ParatíOuro Preto and Buziós, Brazil is perfect for any lover of urban scenery.

Rich in urban life, even richer in wildlife, Brazil’s northwest boasts a vast area of the Amazon rainforest. Home to the most diverse range of flora and fauna in the world and the majestic Amazon River, much of this virgin land remains unexplored.

Farther south of the Amazon rainforest will lead you to the bewitchingly beautiful Pantanal, the largest wetland in the world and an area ideal for wildlife watching. Jaguars, monkeys, anacondas, caimans, giant otters, tapirs and rainbow-coloured macaws are just some of the fascinating fauna that inhabit this ecologically-vital area.

Even farther south, bordering with Argentina are the immense Iguazú Falls, where you can witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of 250 cascades of water pouring over rocky cliff edges and crashing into the canyon river below.

Yet Brazil’s natural beauty does not end with rainforests, marshlands, and waterfalls. Head east and be dazzled by the country’s glittering coastline. Brazilian beaches are renowned as some of the finest in the world, and after viewing the golden sands, azure seas, and sprinklings of palm trees, it’s easy to understand this reputation. Stretching for hundreds of miles the beaches around Salvador, Recife and Fortaleza offer any sun-worshiper a true paradise.
