Beauty is one the things that Brazil is famous for. These 5 travel destinations show the diversity of Brazil’s beautiful natural landscapes and iconic attractions.

 

corcovado christ statue

Corcovado / Christ the Redeemer – Rio de Janeiro.

Completed in 1931, the 98 foot tall statue has been named one of the 7 wonders of the world, with a spectacular view of Rio de Janeiro from the top of Corcovado mountain. If you’re not in   rush, take the train up the mountain side for a picturesque adventure to the top.

pelourinho olodum salvador bahia

Pelourinho – Salvador da Bahia

Pelourinho is perhaps the most famous image of Salvador. During the times of slavery, the Largo do Pelourinho was where the slaves were punished. Now Pelo has become a vibrant cultural center with restaurants serving up delicious Bahian cuisine, artisanal products, baroque architecture, religion and music. On Tuesday nights it has a Carnaval like atmosphere where various shows are performed, such as the rehearsal of Olodum, which attracts thousands of people to the streets and squares of  Pelourinho.

 

Iguassu Falls - Foz do Iguassu

Iguassu Falls – Foz do Iguassu

Iguassu means “large water” in the Tupi-Guarani (indigenous tribe) language. There are 19 main falls. Five of them are on the Brazilian side, with the rest are on the Argentinean side. Since most of the falls are on the Argentinean side and facing Brazil, the best views are for those who observe the scene from the Brazilian side. Iguassu falls are absolutely one of the Wonders of the World that should not be missed.

 

Fernando de Noronha

Fernando de Noronha

The islands of this archipelago are the visible parts of a range of submerged mountains. It consists of 21 islands, islets and rocks of volcanic origin which sits 220 miles off the Brazilian coast and is a protected municipality of the state of Pernumbuco.

Scuba diving, swimming, snorkeling and photography are popular activities with the beaches, and life above and below sea as the main attraction of the islands. Sea turtles, dolphins, albatrosses and many other species are frequently observed.

 

Amazon rainforest - Amazonas

Amazon rainforest – Amazonas

The fauna, flora and exotic animal species of the Amazon are, by far, the most endearing traits of this beautiful area. The climate of the Amazon Jungle is typically tropical, with hot, humid conditions both day and night. It is very wet in this area, no matter what time of year. Visitors will need to prepare for these conditions, which can become uncomfortable, but are well worth it. Malaria and/or Yellow Fever vaccination is required.

The best way to experience the Amazon Jungle and its massive rivers are by boat. Trained guides can be hired for individual travellers as well as larger groups. This will allow you to cruise along the deep waters, and spy into the dense rainforest. Many of the native villages have been built on the banks of the Amazon River, giving travellers the opportunity to catch a glimpse of their lives and communities.
