Brazil offers something for literally everyone. Bustling cities like Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo boast vibrant nightlife and a wealth of heritage sites. There are inland rainforests and the stunning natural beauty of the Amazon rainforests to be discovered. Coastal areas like Salvador have miles of golden beaches, strings of fishing villages and some of the most colourful carnivals ever seen.
