Brazil is the largest country in Latin America. It spreads across almost half (47.3%) of South America, and occupies a total area of 8,547,403.5 km2. It is the fifth largest country in the world after Canada, the Russian Federation, China and the United States. Except for a small number of islands, Brazil is a single and continuous landmass. The Equator crosses through the Northern region, near Macapa, and the Tropic of Capricorn cuts through the South of the country, near São Paulo.


Why travel to Brazil?

Because Brazil is exuberant by nature.

In Brazil, exuberance is everywhere. You find it in the vastness of the desert-like sands of the Lençois Maranhenses and in its seven thousand kilometres of coastline. In the rivers so wide they appear to be seas. In the Amazon Forest, the largest on the planet. In the 250 thousand square kilometres of the Mato Grosso swamplands, the impressive nature reserve, a Heritage of Humanity.

Beauty also runs wild in the 44 national parks created to preserve the ecosystem. In the long rows of coconut palms which line the coast of Alagoas. Throughout the Chapada Diamantina, in Bahia, and from the top of the Pico de Itatiaia, in Rio de Janeiro. In the archaeological sites of Piaui. In Brasilia's beautiful sunsets and throughout the pampas of Rio Grande do Sul. Amidst the impressive mountains of Minas Gerais and the amazing pororoca, the strange and noisy meeting of waters in the States of Amapa and Para. Everywhere you look, there are plenty of reasons to become enchanted, to become emotional, and why not say, to fall in love with Brazil.
