After trying too hard to attract tourists for decades, Brazil has finally come up in a big way. The country is now attracting all kinds of travelers with its Patanal adventures, the biodiversity of the Amazon, enchanting coastal drives of the northeast, exotic beaches of Costa Verde and the luxe resorts of Santa Catarina. City dwellers enjoy the culture and lively attractions of Salvador da Bahia and food lovers cannot miss out on a trip to Sao Paulo.
Rio is a must-see for every traveler visiting the country and there are all kinds of adventures to choose from. Rio has been one of the most crime-ridden cities in the recent past, but statistics now show that the crime rate is falling and prosperity is actually increasing. The city also has a special police squad to prevent armed robberies, murders and drug wars. Combine this to its seductive nightlife, cosmopolitan lifestyle and sultry surroundings, and you would feel foolish to miss out on Rio.
There are a few adventures that simply have to become a part of your experience in Brazil. The Iguacu Falls, one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the planet, is a must-see, as is the Amazon rainforest, home to some of the most unique species. Other things to see include Christ the Redeemer, Ipanema Beach, Sugarloaf Mountain and Teatro Municipal.
