Amazon Rainforest, Iguazu Falls & Stunning Beaches
Famed for its colourful carnivals, lush rainforest, tropical beaches and love of football, Brazil is as diverse as it is vast.
Its buzzing cultural centre, Rio de Janeiro, is home to the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city which is fringed by the sea, and it is here, that you can samba the night away or watch the famous floats at the Rio de Janeiro Carnival, but leave the city, and you'll find yourself a world away where nature flourishes.
When it comes to wildlife, Brazil has a pretty big claim - it is home to 50% of the Amazon Rainforest which accounts for 10% of species in the world and is a must for anyone visiting Brazil. Float down the unspoiled waters of the Amazon basin keeping an eye out for sloths and pink river dolphins or take a trek through this dense, lush forest, dive in the crystal-clear Olho d'Água River and discover an underwater world or go spotting jaguars in the Pantanal - one of the best places in the world to see these remarkable cats.
Marvel at the vast sheet of water that is Iguazu Falls which straddles Brazil and Argentina and has been named an official Wonder of Nature or relax on the infamous Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
