Explore this mecca of biodiversity, where the mighty Amazon meanders and the carnival vivifies
The largest country in South America, Brazil is an amazing blend of landscapes and cultures. Its natural wonders range from the mighty Amazon river and the world’s largest rainforest to wild waterfalls, flat-topped mountains, expansive grasslands, immense dunes, unspoilt tropical beaches and an astonishing variety of flora and fauna.
A number of beautiful historic towns have well-preserved colonial houses and baroque churches, while the futuristic capital, Brasilia, is a Unesco world heritage site due to its striking modernist urban design.
Brazil is full of vivid colours, exotic rhythms and an incredible diversity of people, all unified by a vigorous and contagious lust for life.
