Jaguar in the Pantanal Wetlands, Brazil

Places to visit in Brazil

Brazil is untamable: a land of entrancing opposites, where hedonistic, fiesta-loving cities mix with barely visited Amazon Rainforest backwaters and the sleepy, immaculately preserved former diamond and gold mining towns of Minas Gerais. Our specialists encourage you to embrace as many of Brazil’s attractions as possible, and they’ll help you plan the best way to tackle this cavernous state. They can show you how to combine many of its highlights in the course of one trip — though, as they freely admit, you’re likely to find yourself vowing to return.

Watching jaguar stalking in the Pantanal, standing in the spray of Iguaçu Falls, or gazing up at Rio’s Christ the Redeemer: these are some of the best places to go in Brazil. And yet we can recommend many more ways to experience this South American giant, whether that’s watching sunset capoeira on Ilha Grande, or even just finding that perfect-stay pousada.
