There are so many exciting things to discover in Brazil, from ancient colonial towns to surreal landscapes. Discover stunning waterfalls, paradise islands and the incomparable Amazon basin. Then there are Pantanal’s incredible wetlands and the awe-inspiring Iguassu Falls that shares its border with Argentina.
The capital, Rio de Janeiro, literally welcomes visitors with open arms – the statue of Christ the Redeemer stands open-armed on Corcovado Mountain overlooking the city that stretches along the shores of famous Copacabana and Ipanema Beaches.
