Brazil, South America's largest country, is home to stunning beaches, vast stretches of lush Amazon rainforest, the wildlife-rich Pantanal wetlands, the mighty Iguassu falls and the vibrant cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador that explode with colour during carnival season. These are just a few of the reasons why Brazil is one of the coolest places to go on the planet.
Covering half of the continent of South America, Brazil is a land of staggering natural beauty and colours, where the carnival spirit reaches each and every corner. From pristine Amazonian rainforests, the wildlife-rich Pantanal and the thundering Iguassu falls to vibrant colonial towns and the dazzling cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, Brazil is a truly hypnotic nation of heady Afro-Caribbean rhythms, sensual samba, exotic flora and fauna, caipirinhas and passionate people. In a country so large and diverse as Brazil, there is fantastic scope to find your own special corner whether you are travelling as a family, are after adventure, would like to explore the country's rich colonial heritage or would like simply to chill out on the beach, and there are a wide range of fabulous properties here, ranging from luxury boutique hotels to remote beach hideaways.
