Sprawling across half of South America, the largest country of this subcontinent is home to a diversity of wildlife, natural environments and extensive natural resources in a variety of protected habitats. Brazil offers majestic waterfalls, red-rock canyons and crystal-clear rivers. Two of its most famous attractions are the Amazon and the Pantanal, which host some of the greatest biodiversity on the planet, special for wildlife-watching. The Amazon is the world's second-longest river and the largest in terms of volume of water.
Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline of over 7.500 kilometers with white-sand beaches lined with palm trees and fronting a deep blue sea. Dotting this coastline are tropical islands, music-filled metropolises and enchanting colonial towns. Some of the world's most exciting cities lie inside of Brazil's borders, and travelers need not come to Carnival to experience the music and dancing in them.
All of this -the tropical climate, the natural resources and the enchanting personality of its friendly and animated people- make Brazil a unique place to visit.
