1. Brazilian Beaches
With more than 2,000 beaches stretching along the Brazilian coastline and more than 1,000 islands dotting the Atlantic Ocean within the country's limits, a trip to the beach is a must while in the country.
Although many of them are densely populated, many are conserved ecological sanctuaries.
2. Natural Wonders
The Amazon River and the Tropical Forest and the Iguazu Falls are the most famous natural attractions in a country that has 62 National Parks and hundreds of preservation areas.
Brazil prides itself on having several records for the amount and diversity of wildlife.
This resulted from the urgent need to preserve endangered natural treasures and inspired an increase in ecotourism and responsible travel initiatives.
This effort is allowing more travelers to enjoy Brazil sustainably and preserving the best of Brazil for local communities.
3. Cities and Towns
Despite all the questionable aspects of the 2016 Olympics, the games have become a catalyst for many changes for the better in the host city and beyond.
Many capitalized on the increase in visitors by instituting new cultural attractions, hotels, restaurants, and more.
4. Brazilian People and Culture
For hundreds of years, Brazilian culture has been made up of people with very diverse ethnic and cultural heritages.
A glorious mix of diversity is imprinted on the culture that resulted in purely Brazilian elements, celebrations, and traditions, such as bossa nova, capoeira, and the yellow soccer jersey.
Strong cultural resilience also supports, for example, both indigenous peoples and Afro-Brazilians, who are reaffirming their sense of identity through their rich culture.
With so much diversity, it's safe to say that the people who created Brazil are, as a rule, friendly to foreign tourists.
5. Celebrations and Events
Yes, we have a carnival. And because it's a nationwide party, smaller, emerging cities are drawing more and more attention, as well as party-goers from Rio, Salvador, Recife, and Olinda.
However, there is much more to the Brazilian calendar.
For example, many international travelers have found that New Year's Eve, the Brazilian New Year, is as fun as Carnival. Here is a sample of the diversity of festivals and events in Brazil:
- Holy Week - Brazilian Holy Week
- June festivities
- Feast of the divine
- Feast of Saint Vitus
