Recommended places to visit in Brazil
Famous for its raucous street parties and sizzling hot beaches, Brazil has plenty more beside from mighty waterfalls to fashionable cities and is a top holiday destination for urban dwellers and nature lovers alike. Take a look at our favourite picks to get you inspired:
The chic, modern city of Curitiba is home to the rather futuristic-looking glass tube bus stations that revolutionised inner city transport in Brazil. The quality of life in this incredibly efficient city is second to none and has green areas in abundance, making it one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the entire country. Points of interest include the dazzling botanical gardens and crystal palace, and the Rua 24 Horas – a street where everything is open 24 hours a day.
The awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls, consisting of 275 cascades, sits on the border between Brazil and Argentina and is truly one of the most breathtaking sights in the world. The streams of water that tumble down the cliff sides are powerful and create heavy jet sprays, giving the entire area a misty and mysterious look. The region surrounding the falls is covered in thick rainforest, inhabited by all kinds of exotic wildlife, including ocelots and caymans.
As the host of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics, Rio de Janeiro has been in the public eye more than any other city so far this decade. With its world famous Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer looking out over the city, there is no end to the reasons why a visit to this magnificent city is a must, sporting events aside. Nestled between towering mountains, which offer some stunning views, it's a city with ample natural beauty to boot.
At first glance Sao Paulo might seem overwhelming with its towering skyscrapers and sprawling urban landscape, but this city is a melting pot of different cultures, each one contributing something to Sao Paulo’s exciting atmosphere. There are endless dining options scattered throughout the area, including popular rodizio and the city is also home to some of the best museums in all of South America.
