Exploring the natural bounty in a vacation destination is a priority for some people while for some others experiencing the heritage and cultural ambiance is important. However, if you want to experience both in a single travel destination, Brazil could be your choice. South America’s largest country is famous for its breathtaking landscape, wildlife and lively cities. The carnivals and soccer also lure millions of travelers from various parts of the world.
Brazil is a large country and so careful planning is required when you plan your next vacation here. No matter which regions you choose to visit, you should not miss two important cities- Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo. Nicknamed as Marvelous City of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro is a bustling city with ample relaxation options and a rich heritage. The major crowd puller here is the massive statue, Christ the Redeemer placed atop Corcovado hill. Those who like less crowded places can head to Sugarloaf Mountain, which is bliss for photography buffs. When you feel like getting a tan or chilling by coastal region, the Copacabana beach, located at the city’s southern side, is where you should go. The famous Rio de Janerio festival held over 4 days is famous and draws millions of footfalls every year.
São Paulo, called melting pot of Brazil, could be your next stop. The amazing Museum of Art in this city can leave you spellbound. Tourists admire the splendid architecture of the building while the preserved relics are really impressive. The cultural diversity of São Paulo is unparalleled and you should explore the Vila Madalena district to feel this.
After exploring major cities in Brazil, you should spend some time seeing its natural wonder and wildlife. The Amazon, comprising of a behemoth river system and rainforest has abundant attractions for visitors. You can find adventure travel packages that let you experience wilderness of this region to the hilt. A majority of tourists explore the beautiful Amazonia National Park and spend time in bird watching and kayaking. The animals like capybara, three-toed sloths, Tapirs, spotted jaguar and myriads of reptile species keep viewers enthralled. Same can be said about various avian species found in the forests including Macaw and Eagles.
In Brazil’s southern Pantanal region, which is the world’s largest wetlands, you can find even greater variety of wildlife. The major attractions are the Hyacinth Macaw, Giant Anteater, Marsh Deer and elusive Maned Wolf. A whopping 11000 species of animals can be found in the wetlands.
While accommodation in Brazil is not cheap in major cities, countryside options are lighter on your wallet. You should opt for family owned, small accommodations to save vacation expenditure. Availing service of veteran flight booking agencies can also bring down your Brazil vacation cost. These agencies offer business class flights at the cheapest rate to major airports in the country. If you travel in off- season months, notably after the Carnival, chances of saving on airfare and hotel fees are greater. For intra city travel, it is prudent to use Brazil’s bus network.
