Rio de Janeiro
Rio is fantastically multi-cultural with warm and fun-loving residents. The tropical beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema are great for sunbathing, water sports or even just people-watching. The most recognised figure of the city is Christ the Redeemer, elected one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Climb 710 m up Corcovado (Hunchback) Mountain where you will be greeted by the 30 m statue and glorious views out over Rio.

Sao Paulo
Sao Paulo is a large sprawling city of 11 million, and the tourist attractions are spread out. Enjoy the art and the shops while the sun is shining and soak up the rich culture, food and bars by night. Laze by the lakes in Ibirapuera Park where you can even borrow books from the unique Bosque de Leitura (Reading Woods). Another highlight is the Snake Farm where you can see snakes, scorpions, and spiders from around the world.

The planned city of Brasilia was built in only four years and was designed to impress. Houses along the wings of the airplane shaped city all look out onto park and wide boulevards lead to the centre. Take the time to check out the modernist architecture such as the Square of the Three Powers, the Palace of Justice and Brasilia Cathedral.

Iguazu Falls
Iguazu, meaning 'great waters' is surrounded by national parks on both the Argentina and the Brazil sides. The falls themselves are divided into 275 separate falls, the highest being the Devil's Throat, higher than Niagara Falls at 70 m. Jump on a boat that will take you right under the falls, an awesome experience.

Give in to the charms of Salvador, the old colonial capital built on a peninsula overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Todos os Santos Bay. The beaches in the bay are calm with long stretches of sand, while the Atlantic beaches are good for surfing. The tourist epicentre is Pelourinho, the ‘city within a city’, with cobblestone streets, churches and brightly-painted buildings as well as bars, restaurants and other attractions.

The busy seaport of Recife is a commercial and trading centre where looming high rises overlook the inlets, canals and bridges the city is built around. Because of this it is known as the ‘Venice of Brazil’. Discover Recife’s artistic and folkloric traditions, and lap up the arts and entertainment on offer.
