Land of Brazilwood
The largest country in South America and the biggest Portuguese-speaking nation in the world, Brazil remains best known for its soccer tradition and annual Carnaval. Most visitors on holiday in Brazil come for the country's outstanding beaches, music, wildlife, and diverse neighborhoods, each one boasting its own distinct character, atmosphere, and way of life. A tour of Brazil reveals a vast land of great natural and human diversity, from its sprawling rainforest wildernesses, to its busy urban centers. There are plenty of things to do in Brazil, from basking on its coastline to chasing the samba scene or catching a picturesque sunset from one of the country's lush mountaintops.

Beaches · Theme Parks · Landmarks
Beaches reign as top State of Santa Catarina tourist attractions, yet this small state in the south of Brazil offers more than just traditional sun-and-sand appeal. Over 550 km (340 mi) of coastline provide plenty of both secluded beach spots and well-developed resorts designed to attract a global audience of party-loving vacationers. Away from the busy coastal areas, a State of Santa Catarina vacation allows visitors to discover the country's European heritage, rich arts scene, outstanding cuisine, and renowned architecture. Many visitors begin their tour with Oktoberfest in Blumenau, home to large German and Italian communities and renowned for its award-winning microbreweries.

State of Bahia travel guide

4.2
Beaches · Churches · Landmarks
In the early 16th century, original Portuguese explorers landed on the coastline of today's State of Bahia, a northeastern region where South America meets Africa. The mix of these two disparate cultures remains one of the main reasons to take a trip to State of Bahia, though a growing number of tourists also come for a chance to see protected sea turtle nesting grounds, hike to dramatic waterfalls, and spot whales along the coastline. National parks top most State of Bahia itineraries, serving as quiet and largely unspoiled wilderness areas that offer a peek into what most of Brazil looked like when the first Europeans arrived. Start your State of Bahia tour in state capital Salvador, a colonial-era city known for its attractive churches and cobblestoned streets.
