Overview

The largest country in South America, Brazil, is also the most diverse and populous countries in the world. First time travellers to Brazil may feel slightly overwhelmed by the vastness of the place and find choosing one city to visit difficult but most Brazil flights stop in either Rio or Sao Paulo and from there travelling around the rest of the country is easy.

The first thing most people notice when they visit Brazil is the eclectic mix of its people. Immigrants from Portugal, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Asia have been living harmoniously here for generations. Sao Paulo has the largest Japanese community outside of Japan while Rio Grande do Sul, Parana and Santa Catarina in the south have the highest concentration of Germans and Italians.

Rio de Janeiro is undoubtedly Brazil’s heart and soul, and of course, where Carnaval takes place every year attracting thousands to book flights to Brazil. And while Rio is known as the party city, Sao Paulo is where Brazil’s financial center lies and is also its richest city.  Those looking for the secluded legendary beaches of Brazil should head further northeast to Recife, Fortaleza and Natal.

Getting around Brazil

Getting around Brazil

Because of its size, the best way to get around Brazil is by domestic flights. A Brazil Pass is the most economical way to fly around from city to city, but the pass must be arranged when booking your airline ticket.

Taxis are the safest way to get around the major cities.

Buses are a good option for long-distance travel and all major cities are linked by bus routes.

Driving is not advisable since traffic can get rather frustrating and the roads can be dangerous at times.
