Brazil is a country that captivated travelers for at least 500 years. Powdery white-sand beaches, lined with palm trees and fronting a deep blue Atlantic, stretch for more than 7000km. Dotting this coastline are tropical islands, music-filled metropolises and enchanting colonial towns. Inland, Brazil offers dazzling sights of a different flavor: majestic waterfalls, red-rock canyons, and crystal-clear rivers, all just a small part of the natural beauty. It’s larger and more famous attractions are the Amazon and the Pantanal, the pair hosting some of the greatest biodiversity on the planet.
Wildlife-watching is simply astounding here, as is the opportunity for adventure though you needn’t go to the jungle to find it. Kayaking, rafting, trekking, snorkeling and surfing are just a few ways to spend a sun-drenched afternoon in nearly any region in Brazil. Given the country’s innumerable charms, the only drawback to traveling in Brazil is a logistical one: you simply won’t want to leave. “Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ” ~William Wordsworth http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Rio_%28film%29 http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Brazil http://www. suite101. com/content/what-is-an-ornithologist–a5855
