    Brazil

    Major Tourist Attractions: Cristo Redentor, Iguazu Falls, Copacabana, Ipanema, Sugarloaf Mountain Estadio do Maracana

    Brazil’s diversity extends beyond the biodiversity of the Amazon. It’s ethnic diversity creates a country that offers tourists a variety of unique experiences.

    The secrets of Brazilian beauty have not gone untold. The country has been a tourism hot-spot for decades, and events like the World Cup and Summer Olympics help stretch those scenes of stunning beaches, vast rain forest, and beautiful people farther around the world and deeper into the desires of potential travelers.

    That said, what's amazing about Brazil, from a travel standpoint, is how many places remain way off the tourist trail. Moreover, the diversity in Brazil is something that is far too often overlooked. Yes, the country is famous for its beaches and rain forest. And, yes, the beaches and rain forests are as brilliant as they sound. But Brazil is also home to deserts, pampas, and plateaus.

    Furthermore, the ethnic diversity is also striking. There are high populations of people from European, Africa, Asian, and Middle-Eastern descent here. In fact, in parts of the Amazon, there are even villages who are direct descendants of escaped slaves who still hang on to many of their African traditions and cultures. And, of course, there are also the well-document cases of tribes in the country which still have not been contacted by foreign people. The ethnology of Brazil is fascinating.

    Another great aspect of tourism in Brazil is that the types of travel experiences themselves are incredibly varied. You'll find everything available from luxury beach getaways to exciting Amazon expeditions to more budget-oriented “local” travel experiences. Whether you're traveling on a shoe-string budget or looking to be pampered, there's something for you here.

    Over the next couple years, tourism in Brazil is only going to grow exponentially, so if there was ever a time to visit, this is it.

    Things to Do in Brazil:

    • Join the street party in a bloco at Carnival in Salvador de Bahia.
    • Venture through the most bio-diverse place on earth (the Pantanal) in search of jaguars and other rare animals.
    • Learn how to Samba in Rio de Janeiro.
    • Wander through the coastal sand dunes of secluded Jericoacoara.
    • Float down the Amazon spotting wildlife.
    • Visit the town of Santarem, a beach destination within the Amazon River system.
    • People watch of famous beaches like Cocacabana.
    • Visit the Colonial town of Paraty.
    • Go on a shopping spree on Sao Paulo's Rua Oscar Freire
