Olá bonito Brasil!

Brazil, the fifth-largest and fifth most populous country in the world, is an amazing country by any measure. Dazzling beaches, tropical islands, picturesque colonial towns, verdant rainforests and vast pristine wetlands - Brazil's landscape is as diverse as the people who inhabit it. From Rio de Janeiro, a beautiful and pulsating city embedded between mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, to the Pantanal, the world's largest freshwater wetland and home to the greatest concentration of wildlife on the continent, from the beautiful colonial cities of Salvador, to the spectacular Iguazu Falls, Brazil offers visitors a unique experience. A country revered for its football prowess and rich musical traditions, Brazilians exhibit a pure love of life and an enduring spirit which will captivate you. And maybe extend your trip to the colonial resort of Paraty – recently featured as one of the Top 20 worldwide destinations to visit by Conde Neste Traveler.
