Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro by sama093

Here are some reasons you should consider Brazil for your next vacation:

  • Brazil has 2,000+ beaches, including the popular Copacabana Beach and Ipanema Beach (yup, like the songs).
  • The cities are constantly bustling with activities. Carnivals, street food, and parties almost aways abound.
  • If you’re an outdoorsy person, Brazil has beautiful landscapes, rainforests, and natural wildlife hikes to explore. After all, Brazil is home to the Amazon Jungle.
  • Brazil has amazing cuisine, which I will elaborate on in this week’s food post. Check back soon for that!
  • Music and dance are notable parts of Brazil’s culture. Samba, anyone?

Notable things to do and sights to see:

  • Go to the beach, obviously!
  • Rock climbers looking for outdoor bouldering can stop by Barrinha’s crags, which are high enough to lookout upon the districts and beaches of Rio.
  • Have an adventure in the Amazon Jungle, or take a tour along the Amazon River.
  • Go to a soccer game at Maracanã Stadium.
  • Visit the 125-foot Christ the Redeemer statue.
  • Take a cable car up to Sugarloaf Mountain.
  • See a gorgeous waterfall at one of the country’s many national parks.
