Brazil occupies nearly half the continent of South America. The Atlantic Ocean runs along its entire eastern coast, where two-thirds of its population lives. Ruled by Portugal since the 1500s, Brazil is the only country in the whole continent that speaks Portuguese.
Brazil offers world class travel destinations with unique travel experiences...
Rio de Janeiro is the hottest of destinations and very few places in the world match its hospitality and natural charm. Rio is brimming with color, sound, rhythm, and joy, which make it synonymous with Carnaval, happiness, and beautiful people. Rio has music, nightlife, beaches, historical sites and a spirit all its own. The locals are called Cariocas and tend to be extravagant, the intensity with which they live life is legendary and truly remarkable.
In the north are the major Brazilian tropical beach resorts areas such as Recife, Forteleza and Salvador da Bahia. Special amongst these is Bahia, with its prevailing African culture, cuisine, music and traditions truly their own. Here the pace and rhythm of life is very linked to history and the joy and warmth of the people make it a unique area.
