When planning a trip to Brazil, the first thing to consider is where you want to go and what you want to see. Brazil is very large in area, about the size of the mainland of the US (not including Alaska). It is a country of extreme diversity with many beautiful and interesting areas to discover and it is impossible to see it all in a single trip. Here are a few suggestions:


·         Rio de Janeiro – Rio, the former capital, is well known for its beautiful beaches and lively casual atmosphere. It is the home of many familiar landmarks such as Sugarloaf Mountain, Corcovado Mountain (topped by the statue, “Christ the Redeemer”), Copacabana and Ipanema beaches and beautiful architecture. The city is extremely diverse with affluent neighborhoods contrasting with the colorful favalas located within.


·         Salvador, Bahia – Another port city, Salvador was the first colonial capital of Brazil. This area is an extremely interesting place to explore, where the African influence can be seen and heard everywhere. It is a vibrant, colorful and lively part of the country, filled with beautiful colonial architecture, street art, music and flavors.


·         Iguazu Falls – Located on the border of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay, this UNESCO site is a “must see”

for anyone traveling to the area. The Argentinian side has a train taking visitors to the trails which provide an immersive experience. The Brazilian side has amazing panoramic views which are impossible to capture with a camera. These falls are in a staircase form which make up the largest waterfall system in the world! The parks are home to beautiful wildlife (monkeys, Coatis, butterflies, birds and many others). It is truly an experience unlike anything else and should be included in every itinerary.
