Brazil is undeniably a land of profound economic and social contradictions, but don't let this put you off visiting. It is a truly captivating country, full of culture, spectacular natural beauty, rhythm-filled metropolises and rich regional cuisines.

Here you can explore the Amazon Rainforest, which boasts the greatest collection of plant and animal species found anywhere in the world, enjoy incredible views of the mighty Iguaçu Falls and spot the elusive jaguar in the Pantanal wetlands. Away from Brazil's stunning natural wonders, relax on Rio's sun-kissed beaches or have a caipirinha or two before dancing the night away in the megacity of São Paulo.

Be informed, plan your trip and Brazil will certainly not disappoint.
