Blessed with natural good looks and big on personality, the giant of South America that is Brazil offers a unique visitor experience. World class beaches such as Ipanema and Copacabana in Rio are well known, but Brazil has others that are less famous, but every bit as good – in Salvador, Recife, and Natal, to name just a few. Away from the Atlantic coastline that stretches for nearly 7,500 km, this vast country has so much to see and do. From the steaming Amazon rainforest in the north, by way of the Pantanal wetlands to the thundering falls of Iguacu in the south, there’s simply too much to take in, in a single visit. World-renowned Carnaval is celebrated throughout Brazil, although the colourful floats and parades in Rio de Janeiro are not to be missed. But you can dance the samba in Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Belem, and a host of other cities, all year long!
