Join us on a holiday to Brazil

Bask in the sun by day, and dance to the rhythm of samba by night! Take a holiday to Brazil and discover an intoxicating country of tropical jungles, vibrant cities, boundless beaches and much more.

Brazil is vast - taking up almost 50% of the South American landmass, and stretching from just above the Equator south to (and through) the Tropic of Cancer. Its three-million-plus square miles variously carpeted by dense tropical rainforest, punctuated by towering mountains and ridgelines, and criss-crossed by rivers.

It's perhaps no surprise that a nation so huge is home to some of the world's most impressive natural wonders. The Amazon River and Amazon Rainforest are so famous they need no introduction, but Brazil is also home to an equal share (with Argentina) of the largest waterfalls in the world - Iguazú Falls, and the verdant marshes, lakes of the world's largest wetland - the Pantanal. Even the beaches are vast - the pure white dunes of Lençois Maranhenses stretch over 600 square miles of northern Brazilian coastline. Everywhere you go on a tour of Brazil you'll find astonishing sights and unforgettable landscapes teeming with the most incredible and diverse wildlife anywhere on earth.

And it's not just Brazilian nature that's huge. Rio de Janeiro may be the sixth largest city in all the Americas, but it's only half the size of its near neighbour, Sao Paulo. Manaus is an economic powerhouse in the heart of the jungle and a major sea port almost 1000 miles from the Atlantic coast.

Even everyday life is lived large in Brazil. Carnival may only whirl its way through the country's streets once a year, but that doesn't stop the Brazilians. Every little festival offers an easy excuse to dress up, dance till dawn and generally live life as a non-stop party. In Ouro Preto the streets are carpeted in flowers for Holy week, while Blumenau hosts the largest Oktoberfest outside Germany.

  • Brazil uses the Brazilian Real, which has a symbol of R$ and is abbreviated to BRL. For the latest exchange rates, see

  • Brazilian cuisine is vibrant, colourful and diverse, with influences from Portugal, Africa, Asia and other South American countries. The national dish, feijoada, is a rich hearty stew made with black beans and pork. Barbecue is a popular method of cooking all over Brazil, with pork, beef and chicken the most common meats. Shrimp and fish are also ubiquitous in Brazil.
