The biggest country of South America

Walking into this land feels like coming to another world inside of South America, mainly because of the language, Portuguese, considered to have a very relaxed, natural and happy ring to it. Brazil vibrates with wild heart bouncing cities, paradisiacal beaches, beautiful people, colonial history, tropical islands and legendary biodiversity held by its world famous amazon rainforest.

Regardless of the country’s vast territory, most of the people live clustered in the coast and large cities. Social differences can be seen in the urban environment, with underprivileged people living in the popular “favelas”, which are small and humble houses that lack ownership of property.

The Amazonas

The Amazon, home to 50% of the planet biodiversity, guards the greatest array of flora and fauna on the planet. This immense nation it’s a wonderland for bird watchers. Some of the thousands of living creatures we can find in this territory are: howler monkeys, whales, endemic birds and pink dolphins. Camping and hiking are other recommended activities, to get in touch with nature and discover a whole new world outside of urban environments.

Brazil is best known for two BIG events: its carnival and soccer matches. The first one is the most popular and worldwide known celebration where gorgeous women dance cheerfully through the streets of Rio de Janeiro wearing colorful and sparkling costumes; all surrounded by loud regional music, folklore, an ambience of excitement, and a never ending party mood. The second one is the national passion, almost a religion. When you’re around, watching a match in the Maracana stadium is a must! The festive attitude in this country is present all year round.
