As the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region, Brazil is a hotspot for sightseeing; between the music, dance, art and scenery, there’s so much to see that one could never get tired of anything Brazilian. Sightseeing tours in Brazil reflect the country’s diversity: guides offer trips in the form of art walks, beach tours, cave tours, cultural tours, favela tours, heritage-history tours, museum tours, shore excursions, and walking tours. Rest assured that in Brazil, there’s something for anyone of any age and any ability.
Both by geographical area and population, Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world, and while you’d think they’d speak Brazilian, they actually speak Portuguese. And the surprises don’t stop there: Brazil is home to an estimated four million plant and animal species, which includes the likes of pumas and jaguars, sloths and armadillos, anteaters and monkeys, as well as the red-bellied piranha, which may sound like a ferocious freshwater fish, but, on the whole, is actually a timid scavenger.
Adventure-oriented sightseers rejoice: Brazilian topography is also diverse and includes hills, mountains, plains, highlands, and scrublands that are phenomenal to play in. In fact, statistically, natural areas are Brazil’s most popular feature: most tourists visit the area for the sun and beach!
But beaches at Rio de Janeiro only compliment Brazil’s other outstanding offerings. For example, sightseeing in Brazil wouldn’t be complete without paying ode to the country’s music scene, especially when samba, Brazil’s characteristic sound since the late eighteenth century, is on the UNESCO cultural heritage list!
Sightseeing guides in Brazil will fill your minds with all sorts of fascinating information pertaining to their colorful country, and during breaks, they’ll also take you to where you can try some incredible local food. While the average Brazilian meal consists mostly of rice and beans with beef and salad, fried potatoes, fried cassava, fried banana, fried meat and fried cheese are also commonly eaten midday. The point here is that sightseeing in Brazil goes beyond visual attractions — amazing experiences extend into indulging in the local food.Read More ...
