Widely known as one of the world’s most fascinating places, Brazil is a dazzling country of powdery white-sand beaches, virgin rainforests and rhythm-filled cities. Brazil’s attractions extend from charming colonial towns to dramatic landscapes of red-rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and tranquil tropical islands. Brazil’s biodiversity is legendary in scope with diverse ecosystems boasting the greatest assemblage of plant and animal species found anywhere on the planet. Brazil offers exploits for tourists with budgets both large and small. There’s horseback riding in the Pantanal, kayaking flooded forests in the Amazon, ascending rocky cliff tops to spectacular views, whale-watching off the coast, surfing the waves off palm-fringed beaches and snorkeling crystal-clear rivers or coastal reefs. There’s also the appealing prospect of doing nothing, aside from soaking up the sun on a magnificent stretch of beach, with a caipirinha – Brazil’s national cocktail – in hand. Brazil’s most famous celebration, Carnival, flows through the country’s cities and towns with hip-shaking samba and frevo, dazzling costumes, and carefree spirit each year just prior to Lent. But Brazilians share their passion for partying throughout the year, whether dancing with Cariocas at Rio’s distinctive samba clubs or following powerful drumbeats through the streets of Salvador. Brazilians often say ‘Deus e Brasileiro’ (God is Brazilian), and Cayman Travel can help you create your own special trip to this slice of travel heaven.
