Brazil Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 82%, Brazil is what most PlanetHoppers! think about first when contemplating a trip to South America. It simply represent everything that this amazing continent has to offer to PlanetHoppers! Brazil encompasses a wide array of experiences that extends beyond the amazing beaches of Rio (Ipenema & Copacabana) and the world famous icons (Christ the Redeemer and world class futbol). At the top of this list has to be the Amazon Rainforest and Pantanal Wetlands that play host to perhaps the greatest diversity of wildlife to be found anywhere on the planet. Then there is Iguazu falls, which is considered by PlanetHop! to be one of the world's coolest waterfalls on the planet. Oh, and, of course, we can't forget Carnival, where you can throw your cares away and party!
