Life is a constant celebration in Brazil

Life is a constant celebration in Brazil. Experience the lively spirit and  passion for fun while dancing in street parades during Carnival. A city for  lovers, hit the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema for non-stop  exotic sights and sounds. For nature lovers Brazil offers a rich ecosystem  including the unforgettable Amazon rainforest, stunning Iguassu waterfalls and  the vast wetlands of The Pantanal. Embrace an exciting Latin American mix that  celebrates everything from culture and cuisine to samba and sunshine.

The most visited places in Brazil includes Fernando de  Noronha Island, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (the two bustling megacities of  the south-east), the more relaxed city of Salvador in the northeast, or the old  colonial towns of Ouro Preto and Olinda. For natural beauty, try a visit to  Iguacu Falls. If you have the chance the best time to visit is Carnival.

There is nothing in the whole wide world like Carnival in Rio. Brasilia, the  capital city of the country, is known by its great architecture. It is a  planned city. The most up-and-coming resort in Brazil is now the small friendly Praia de  Pipa, in the NE of the country; serviced by international airports at Natal and  Recife, this small town is popular with both Brazilians and foreign tourists.  The laid back attitude of the open and friendly locals make this a welcome  change to some of the more recognised but less safe and inviting destinations.

In Southern Brazil you can visit the state of Santa Catarina, which is visited  every year by people who prefer not too crowded spots like major cities or  places where all tourists go. Small beaches like Mariscal, Garopaba, Taquaras  or Estaleiro beach are not too far away from medium size cities, so they  provide all necessary structure, but at the same time still conserve their  natural enchantments. Praia do Pinho (close to Balneario Camboriu – the most  important touristic spot in southern Brazil) is the paradise for naturists as  it is the first official nude beach in Brazil (  Many options of adventure activities such as rafting, diving, fishing, trekking  are aso available in this beautiful region.

Brazil enjoys a strong economy with thriving business and a strong currency.  Most recently, the trend has been for Brazilians to purchase real estate in Florida. This is due to the
combination of their strong currency, coupled with the weak US dollar, plus  Florida real estate prices are currently depressed by 30% or more. Add to this  the Florida sales tax of approximately 6% compared to a VAT tax in Brazil and  shopping for cars, cloths, electronics, etc are all much cheaper in the US  which is why Brazilians are choosing to earn their money in Brazil and spend it  in Florida.  To learn more about Brazil click here:
