Brazil, land of the samba, football, and beaches. It is a country of rivers, lakes and mountains, and also a land of music, folklore and food. Brazil isn't just Carnival; it is a country where people like to celebrate all year round.
If you are looking for ecological adventures, the north of Brazil offers the amazon region which is the world's largest biological reserve, and one-third of the planet's living species. There are jungle lodges which accommodate tourists, offering comfort and security.
The northeast offers a continuous summer climate and the continent's most beautiful beaches. They range from the Canoa Quebrada Beach, in Ceara, through to Genipabu and its sand dunes, in Rio Grande do Norte.
Here you will find a contrast with the newborna and the timeless. Brasilia, the nation's Capital, with its bold architectural style, and on the other hand, the Pantanal of Mato Grosso, a virtual ecological sanctuary, where tourists may see alligators, birdlife, deer, snakes and other wildlife.
The southeast holds Brazil's urban face, where Rio de Janeiro, holds the luxuriant greenery contrasting with thousands of modern buidings. The city brings together one of the country's busiest night and cultural lives, and the world's best know carnival. The state also has stunning beaches in Angra dos Reis, Buzios and Cabo Frio.
The south offers the European flavour, as a result of migration of many Germans, Italians and Polish settlers. The south also offers the stunning Iguazu Falls, one of the world's largest waterfalls.
Mostly tropical, but temperate in south.
