Brazil

 
There is plenty to see and to do in Brazil from the wilderness of the Amazon rainforest to the urban centers of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro with its famous annual carnival.
 
 
Brazil is the largest country in South America in terms of both area and population. It occupies almost half the area of the continent and has more people than all the other South American countries combined. Brazil ranks fifth in both area and population among the countries in the world.

Brazil's warm climate and unique variety of activities make it a year-round destination. It has major international cities like Rio de Janeiro; famous beaches such as Ipanema and Copacabana; and the Amazon River, the world's second largest river, which is a world icon of ecology and biodiversity; the Amazon region is home to more than 15,000 species.

Brazil's summer, from December through February, is one of the most popular times to visit as people from other parts of the world come to escape cold winter weather. July is also a popular time because of school holidays.
 
 
The modern capital of Brazil, Brasília, is located on a plateau with an altitude of 1,150 meters, in the center west of the country. It was built in only 3 years, from 1957-1960, by millions of peasants working around the clock. In 1960 Brasília replaced Rio de Janeiro as capital.

Rio de Janeiro is the second largest city in the country, and is famous for its statue of Jesus on the Corcovado, the best known attraction in Brazil. The beach of Ipanema, the Pão de Acúcar - the Sugar Loaf Mountains, and the annual carnival are other tourist attractions. The city of 
São Paulo is the country's largest city, with a population of more than 10 million, while over 5.5 million people live in Rio de Janeiro.

There are frequent flights to Rio de Janeiro from all major cities in South America and from a number of major airports in the USA and Europe.
