One glance at a map of South America and it is immediately evident that Brazil occupies an enormous portion of the continent, including a coastline that is a staggering 4,650 miles long.
While Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana Beach may likely be the most famous, Brazil’s beaches come in a wonderfully eclectic assortment. Some are like the historic old port of Salvador, steeped in the traditions of both European and African cultures. Others are like the laid-back, easy style of Buzios, the “St. Tropez of South America.”
The only Portuguese-speaking country in South America, Brazil offers a cornucopia of adventures that reach well beyond the expected. One of the last great wild places, the primal Amazon rainforest covers almost half of the country. Within this exceptional habitat survive the country’s 67 indigenous tribes, many of whom are still isolated from the world beyond their territories. Pantanal, in the west, is the world’s largest wetlands. The southeastern Atlantic rainforests are 20 million years older than the Amazon ecosystem. Southern Brazil is grasslands, wetlands, pine forests and the grand Iguassu Falls.
Provincial towns like the 500-year-old Olinda and sophisticated cities such as Rio only add to the many charms of a Brazil luxury tour.
