Intro into Brazil

When you think of Brazil you think of beaches, music, carnivals and football. This is what Brazil is all about and they love all the above things. Two-thirds of Brazil’s population lives near the coast (estimated to be 4650 miles long), meaning that life is a beach for locals and tourists alike. People are the essence of the country, and while Brazil is home to a multitude of ethnic groups of varying economic status, there are some characteristics that everyone shares – energy and passion. It’s not all reserved for football either; Brazilians enjoy a good party whatever the circumstances.

This nation covers the fifth largest landmass in the world and houses the fifth largest population certainly has its fair share of problems, but success when it comes to football isn’t one of them. Brazil is five times Football World Cup winners and they’ve just been chosen to host the 2014 Football World Cup.

Rio is the hottest of destinations, particularly around Carnival time. Dancers gyrate, the music beats and the summer temperature rises. Almost anything goes. Bodies of all ages, colors and sizes are in very little beachwear and idle away the days on the sun-kissed Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. Volleyball, swimming and people-watching are but a few of the activities in which you can indulge.

Brazil’s landscape is as diverse as the people who inhabit it. A rich colonial history exists, and the town of Parati is an exquisite example of eighteenth-century Portuguese architecture. The jungles and rivers of the Amazon, home to lush vegetation and exotic wildlife, incite notions of exploration amongst the intrepid, while the thundering Iguacu Falls are simply a spectacular wonder. Brazil’s massive assortment of people and places renders it ripe for choice. It’s a top destination of ours and defiantly worth checking out.
