The largest South American country, and the fifth largest in the world, Brazil has a lot to offer. There is more to it than its beautiful beaches, but understandably so, this is what it is most recognized for. It will never disappoint an adventurous traveler, with its endless exploring opportunities. Here, the magnificent Amazon Jungle weaves through 5.5 million square kilometers, inhabiting more than half of the country. If you dare to enter, bring bug repellant!
Also, the world’s largest wetland, Pantanal, and the extensive span of coast, the Rio Grande do Sul are worth a visit. ‘Don’t go chasing waterfalls’, as TLC used to sing does NOT apply when in Brazil! You need to chase all of the waterfalls. The thunderous Iguazu hangs over a breathtaking cliff-face, that might make you weak in the knees. It will leave you truly awed by the power of mother nature.
Other parts of Brazil are filled with vibrant urban landscapes, lively streets, and lots of flavor. But this is only but a slice of what this wonder-filled, colorful country has to offer. If you get a chance to visit during Carnaval, it is a once-in-a-lifetime endeavor. Experience Brazil and share your fantastic stories with us!
