Learn More About Brazil Tours
On a Brazil tour, you can experience so many amazing natural wonders: the world's second largest river, more than 5,000 miles of coastline and the largest tropical rainforest on earth. Many escorted tours and independent vacations include overnights in Manaus, in the middle of the Amazon jungle. Canoeing on the Amazon River is a marvelous way to explore the area -- discovering the places and animals (including plenty of caymans) that can only be seen from the water.
No Brazil vacation is complete without spending some time in vibrant Rio de Janeiro - home of the 2016 Summer Olympics. Though it's not the country's capital, Rio is likely Brazil's best-known city, with its extravagant, annual Carnival celebration, Copacabana Beach, the Statue of Christ, Sugarloaf Mountain and, of course, samba. But beyond these popular landmarks (and the upbeat music), you'll also find many historic neighborhoods, beautiful architecture and interesting museums.
Iguassu Falls forms a natural border among Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. These otherworldly waterfalls consist of 275 cataracts spread over three miles with drops of 266 feet. In addition to the amazing view of the falls you'll enjoy on a Brazil tour, you can snap photos of the huge population of colorful tropical butterflies.
