Iguassu Falls and Porto Alegre
You will find the Iguassu falls at the source of the Igassu River in the south of Brazil. The water plunges nearly 3km before hitting the bottom and makes for a truly breathtaking sight.

Keep travelling south to reach Porto Alegre, the place to check out the Gaucho, the original Brazilian cowboy. The city has more of latin feel than the rest of Brazil and shares less of the African roots. This is also a good place to get your visa before heading across the border to Uruguay.
Rio and Sao Paulo
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most spectacular cities to visit on the planet, perhaps most well known for the huge annual Rio Carnival. Visit the Cristo Redentor statue, one of the new '7 wonders of the world', spend the day on the Copacabana or party the night away.

Travel west along the coast and you will arrive in Sao Paulo, home to more than 17 million people and the largest city in South America. It's Brazil's bustling economic and financial center where waves of immigrants have brought a unique mix of cultures and cuisines. The city also hosts a range of international trade shows, congresses and symposiums.
Brasilia and the Pantanal
Brasilia makes for a rather unusual experience. Being one of the newest cities in the world, it was designed, constructed and inaugurated in central Brazil with one specific purpose: to be the capital. Brasilia is meant to be a city of the future with open spaces and modern buildings everywhere, check for yourself if you think they succeeded. If modern architecture is not your thing then head west to check out the wildlife of the Pantanal. This vast area of wetlands is half the size of France and home to exotic birds, giant river otters, anacondas, iguanas, jaguars, cougars and crocodiles to name a few.
Salvador and the Northeast
Salvador was the first capital of Brasil and holds the title of oldest city. Check out the enormous Lacerda elevator that goes from the harbor up to the mountains and gives you great views over the city. Here you can see Pelourinho, the old colonial part of the city, with cobblestone streets, churches and brightly-painted buildings. While in the region, also make sure to check out Recife and Sao Luis, two more colonial cities rich in history and natural beauty. Over 1100 of the colonial mansions in the region are listed as Unesco World Heritage sites.
Amazonia National Park
Covering almost 40% of Brazil's landmass and includes seven out of Brazil's 27 states, Amazonia National Park needs no further introduction. The Amazon represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests, and it comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world. A once in a lifetime opportunity for any visitor, however, keep in mind that special licences and regulations apply.
