This is arguably one of the most recommended attractions in Brazil. For four days, 2 million people will be on the street and joined by around 500 000 foreigners for the world’s biggest carnival. The atmosphere during the period will be incredible whether you are in pubs, public places, or even the hotels.

In case you are not there during the period, there are plenty of other carnivals taking place around Brazil, but this one is the one you should not miss. So plan your holidays next time to be part of this big event.

Amazon River

The Amazon River is the second largest river globally and is definitely a place to consider during your visit to Brazil. With a wide variety of species and plants, the Amazon River is an attraction that should not be missed by nature lovers.

You will also have the possibility of boating down the river if you are interested in some adventure.

This is a beautiful archipelago that boasts arguably the best beaches in the whole of Brazil. You will experience some breathtaking landscapes and amazing wildlife, making this place a feast to the eyes.

Unfortunately, more and more developments occur in this area with many hotels and private villas constructions. If you are going to Brazil in the immediate future, do not miss this area before it becomes an urban jungle.

Christ the Redeemer

We could not end a guide on the top spots of Brazil without mentioning this magnificent statue. Located on the top of the Corcovado Mountain, in Rio De Janeiro, this is a place that you will want to visit.

You will enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountain in different areas such as Sugarloaf Mountain, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Botafogo, Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. However, do expect to wait a bit for the cogwheel train during the peak season.
