Places of Interest

The Amazon Rainforest ‑ Manaus

From whichever direction your plane approaches Manaus, you will watch as you pass over the enormous expanse of green wilderness before reaching your destination, this steamy port in the middle of the jungle. The area’s sheer vastness means that whilst a stay here in one of the excellent lodges such as Hotels, Jungle Cruises or the Amazon Eco‑Park will be a fascinating experience.

Rio Carnival

Carnival is the annual 'Celebration of Life' that takes place throughout Brazil. In Rio de Janeiro, floats parade in the purpose‑built Sambodrome, surrounded by dancers, singers and drummers dressed in elaborate costumes. This famous celebration unites the nation, and is one of the greatest shows on earth.

Iguacu Falls

The border between Brazil and Argentina is home to one of the world’s greatest natural phenomena. In the midst of a subtropical nature reserve, 275 separate falls crash over a horseshoe‑shaped precipice, nearly five kilometers/3 miles wide and 90 meters/289 feet high ‑ these are the mighty Iguacu Falls.

The Pantanal

For wildlife viewing, there are few better places in the world than the Pantanal between April and September. The animals and birds found here are similar to those found in the nearby Amazon, but they are much easier to spot in the Pantanal. Animals seen here include capybara, caiman, anteater, armadillo, otter, marmoset and even jaguar and puma.

Football

Football is in the veins of Brazil and seen at every turn. Brazil has given us such footballing greats as Pelé, Ronaldo and Kaka and the love and passion shown by the children passing balls in the street leave little doubt that more stars will follow.

Colonial Towns

From the beautiful towns of Ouro Preto and Tiradentes in Minas Gerais state, Natal and Salvador in the northeast to the cobbled backstreets of Santa Teresa in Rio, there are numerous fine examples of colonial architecture in Brazil.

Beaches

With almost 3,000 km/1,864 miles of coastline, it isn’t surprising that Brazil has some of the best beaches in Latin America. There’s a beach for every taste, miles of deserted sand and palm trees, havens for surfers, beaches to spot whales and beaches to watch the locals parade themselves in the latest swimwear trends.

Salvador, Bahia

Brazil’s oldest city and capital of the state of Bahia, Salvador is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the country ‑ a place where Portugal, Africa and Brazil all collide in a cultural melting pot. Fishermen fish from dug out canoes, locals collect shellfish at low tide, schooners lie at anchor, all protected by the famous Bonfim church, one of the most important churches of pilgrimage in Brazil and deeply discretized with the Candomblé.
