Tourism in Brazil
Is it necessary to have a reason to travel and see what a city or country has to offer? Not in theory, but in practice it is essential to know what you want to do during your vacation so that you can make the most out of every destination in Brazil – and they are many.
A country on a continental scale, Brazil has much more than only sun and surf to offer the tourist. It is possible to plan a trip that focuses on the cold of the mountainous regions like the Serra Gaúcha (Gaucho Mountains), in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. There is also Pantanal, the largest floodplain in the world, offering adventure and sport fishing tourism. Not to mention the 17 World Heritage Sites spread around the country.
Tourism in Brazil does not exist solely based on the natural beauty of the landscape. Regional events such as carnival, festas juninas (typical festivities that take place in the month of June), folia de reis (religious festival), are some of the many celebrations that make Brazil an international tourist destination.
