Most people enter Brazil through its cultural and skyscraper-filled heart São Paulo, or the stunning Rio de Janeiro. Rio is a place like no other, where you can head to Corcovado Mountain in Tijuca Forest National Park to catch a glimpse of the inspiring Christ the Redeemer statue.
The panoramic view from the top is a great way to get a true picture of the extraordinary mix that makes Rio so unique. The view stretches from busy downtown Rio across to Sugarloaf Mountain, out to the famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema and also takes in several of Rio's favelas – precariously positioned on the sides of the surrounding mountains.
Brazil: always ready to party
If you're lucky enough to be heading to Rio for the famous Carnival prepare for throngs of lively people, endless parades and dancing, flashes of spectacular colour and the party of a lifetime! In the city that never sleeps, music pumps from all around and the vibe is simply electric.
Nature-lovers should visit the breathtaking Pantanal, South America's largest wetland, to sail among caiman and see toucans fly overhead and capybara along the banks. Visit the hideaway island Ilha Grande or the resort town Búzios before heading to the cobble-stoned streets of Paraty and exploring this preserved colonial village.
Don't miss getting drenched at the stunning Iguaçu Falls or head north and explore the dense Amazon jungle. Take time to soak up the Brazilian culture in Salvador da Bahia and practise your Portuguese, try new food and sample Brazil's signature cocktail the caipirinha – made from 'cachaça' – a form of sugar cane rum, sugar and lime.
Spend some time people watching at beautiful beaches, watch a football game at the famous Maracanã, head out to one of the many Samba clubs or even take some Samba dance lessons. Make this dream your reality and book a flight to Brazil today.
