The beaches of Brazil are undoubtedly a highlight.

Rio de Janeiro is home to many highlights of Brazil from the awe-inspiring statue of Christ the Redeemer to the infamous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches of Brazil. Not to mention the wonder of immersing yourself into the hustle and bustle of this vibrant City where outstanding architecture, food and drink or street events can be stumbled across at any moment. There is, of course, the world’s largest rainforest and accompanying wetlands to explore – the Amazon and Pantanal!
