Top 5 Things to See and Do in Brazil

Travel to Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is home to numerous museums, stunning beaches, nightclubs, the magnificent Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, and other attractions. No journey is finished without a stop here. It is pure joy, especially if you go during Carnival!

Secondly, visit Florianópolis
Florianópolis is one of the most popular seaside towns in Brazil (especially for surfers taking advantage of big waves). It’s a widely-liked vacation spot for those on a budget as well because of its fine-sand beaches, inexpensive seafood, and vibrant nightlife. Come here to enjoy yourself, unwind, and soak up the sunshine!

Travel to the Amazon.
The Amazon, which makes approximately 8% of the surface of the planet, is home to 50% of the world’s biodiversity. You can do it in a variety of ways, such on an Amazon River jungle cruise, a multi-day guided hike, or a wildlife excursion. To experience how locals live in such a unique environment, you can also visit native communities.

Travel to Fernando de Noronha
Fernando de Noronha was Brazil’s first maritime national park. The white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and amazing snorkeling will take your breath away (there are many dolphins here). Since only 500 people can be on the island at once, it is primarily empty. It’s one of the most stunning places in all of South America.

See Iguazú Falls

The width and height of these waterfalls (which border Argentina) are both twice as great as Niagara Falls’! Water pours down the 275 cascades at a rate of 12,700 cubic meters (450,000 cubic feet) every second, creating a mile-long chain of several waterfalls. You must observe them. Entry fees are 72 BRL.

go to a soccer match in Rio
Over here, soccer (football) is a religion, and the enthusiasm and chaos that surround a game are contagious! Rio de Janeiro’s Maracan stadium, one of the biggest in the world, can accommodate 100,000 people. Matches involving the local teams (Flamengo, Vasco, Botafogo, and Fluminese) are the best since you can always bet on hearing singing, clapping, and insults being thrown during them. Tickets can be purchased via the websites of the teams or FutebolCard. The starting price for a ticket is 10 BRL.

Rio Carnival is enjoyable.
Rio Carnival is a grandiose extravaganza including music, samba, and tens of thousands of revelers parading through the streets while clad in extravagant, colorful regalia. It’s one of the biggest festivals in the globe (2 million people hit the streets every day during Carnival). The entire occasion serves as a hurrah before the start of the season of silence that is Lent. Hotel costs increase during Carnival (held in February), so book far in advance for the best deals.

Visit Brasilia
Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, is frequently overlooked. Both the Santuário Dom Bosco church and the National Congress have tall, narrow windows made of blue Murano glass that seem like stars in the night sky. In 1960, this futuristic metropolis was established. It serves as a hub for modernist construction. Explore the 60,000-acre Parque Nacional de Brasilia’s pathways between towering Cerrado trees while keeping an eye out for creatures like anteaters and pampas deer. It’s a location that visitors ignore far too often.

Look into the Pantanal
The largest wetland in the world, the Pantanal, is found in Western Brazil and extends into parts of Bolivia and Paraguay. Among the more than 11,000 kinds of animals that live here are the rare marsh deer, the huge anteater, and the hyacinth macaw. The two main entrances are in Cuiabá and Campo Grande. I suggest the latter because it typically offers more affordable hotel and tour options. Most multi-day wildlife and sightseeing tours have a daily minimum price of 825 BRL.
