Bordering every other country in South America , other than Chile and Ecuador, Brazil is the largest country in South America.


Of course Brazil is home to the Amazon Rainforest, but also has fantastic beaches, sprawling cities, a huge range of weather systems and an amazing blend of cultures and races.


Some of the more interesting places to visit include the sprawling Rio de Janiero and San Paulo or for those who like a slower pace of life Salvador in the northeast and the old colonial towns of Olina and Ouro. If you are looking for some unspoilt beauty then Iguacu Falls will tick all of the right boxes. Of course no visit to Brazil would be complete without experiencing the majesty and mayhem of Rio ’s Carnival, there really is nothing else like it.


The North East of the country you’ll find the small town of Praia de Pipa, which is turning into the most up and coming resort in Brazil . Popular with both foreign tourists and the Brazilian people alike, the town has an extremely and friendly relaxed atmosphere making it an ideal place to wind down after the rigours of places like Rio or San Paulo. It’s also an easy destination to reach with regular flights to the nearby international airports at Recife and Natal .
