The largest country in South America and one of the most populous nations in the world, Brazil is a colourful and diverse land that mesmerises its visitors with its vivid culture and natural beauty. Firmly in focus as the host nation of the 2016 Olympic Games, Rio de Janeiro is home to the lively beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, the spectacular annual Carnival and breathraking Sugar Loaf Mountain. Meanwhile, you can samba the night away and experience the country’s delicious cuisine in the exciting metropolis of Sao Paulo or admire the World Heritage Site of Salvador’s old town.
Away from the vibrant coastal cities is the lush Amazon Rainforest, which covers vast swathes of inner Brazil and houses some of the world’s impressive biodiversity. Meanwhile, the cascading waters of the Iguazu Falls, located on the border with Paraguay and Argentina, presents one of the most dazzling natural wonders of the world and is a sight not to be missed.
