From the steamy Amazon Jungle to the stunning city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has something for everybody.

Taking up nearly half the continent, Brazil is a South American giant and is a country of contrasts. The city of Rio de Janeiro is a must on any trip to Brazil, home to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue and the world famous Rio Carnival every February. To the south are the mighty Iguazu Falls; surrounded by tropical jungle it is impossible not to be impressed by the scale of these spectacular waterfalls. Inland, you find the Amazon Jungle and the Pantanal wetlands that make Brazil one of the most wildlife diverse countries in the world. Brazil is rightly famous for its beaches and with 7,500km of coastline, you are certainly spoilt for choice. From glamorous beach towns such as Buizos to the wild and rugged beaches of the north, you can find a stretch of beautiful beach sand to suit all tastes. With so much to offer, it’s impossible to see all of Brazil in just one visit.

Travel Tips & Advice for Brazil

Brazil Activities

Get active in Brazil! Learn how to windsurf and kite surf in Jericoacoara, a resort town ringed by fresh water lagoons and perfectly sandy beaches or make your way to Fernando de Noronha, a designated maritime national park made up of 21 islands, ideal for snorkelling, diving, surfing, sailing and dolphin spotting. In buzzing Rio de Janeiro take the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain for the best views over the city, go hang gliding over São Conrado beach or party the nights away at Rio Carnival over five days of street parties, music, costumes and parades. 

Brazil Food & Drink

Brazilian cuisine is melting pot of influences from Portugal to Japan to Africa. The country doesn’t have a ‘national’ dish but feijoada, a rich stew of beans, beef and pork, comes pretty close. Barbecuing is also a big thing and churrascarias – dedicated BBQ restaurants serving meat on spit, cooked over coals and seasoned simply with salt – can be found all over. Take to the streets and you’ll come across deep fried pastry morsels (pastel de queijo), croquettes filled with chicken and cheese and pão de queijos, bread rolls with cheese baked in the middle. And don’t forget to try Brazil’s most famous drink, a caipirinha. 

Brazil Attractions

Flying into Rio de Janeiro, you’ll easily spot the city’s most iconic landmark – Christ the Redeemer (or Cristo Redentor in Portuguese); this 38 metre high statue sits on the top of Corcovado Mountain, arms outstretched over 28 metres wide. Feel the spray of the Iguassu Falls as your visit this chain of over 250 waterfalls bordering Brazil and Argentina and go bird watching and wildlife spotting – including the chance to see the elusive jaguar – in the Amazon Rainforest or the Panatal wetlands. Or marvel at the incredible sand dunes and rainwater lagoons of Lencois Maranhenses National Park.
