Samba, carnival, football and beaches―this is the popular image of Brazil. But behind its endless palm-fringed coastline lies a huge variety of scenery from steaming tropical rainforests to the sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards.

There’s plenty of exotic wildlife on display but it’s the people that give the country its unique identity. Amazonian indians, Portuguese colonists, African, European and Japanese communities both co-exist independently and fuse into a rich medley of cultures, producing art, architecture, music and dance, coloured with a devil-may-care gaiety. Brazil is a country of extremes but today has a robust emergent economy.

There’s a comprehensive network of roads and air routes covering the huge distances. Many attractions have been developed sensitively for tourism; others left in their natural state. There’s a huge range of accommodation and a relaxed, informal and friendly welcome everywhere.

What our experts say

I have visited every one of Brazil's States except one - Acre, which borders Bolivia. I'll have to go back for that one! Seriously though, don't try to visit too much in Brazil in one visit, you won't do it justice. Your priorities will be dictated by your interests, but I would say highlights not to be missed (over several trips) are: an Amazon cruise on the Tucano alongside a few days in the wildlife rich Pantanal; a visit to Iguazú Falls and the far south mountains, canyons and beaches by hire car;  Rio de Janeiro combined with the colonial towns of Ouro Preto and the beaches of the emerald coast, and a tour of the northeast including Salvador and the interior tablelands of Chapada Diamantina.
