Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most magnificent cities in the world. The city has been blessed with a warm climate and an endless coastline of magnificent beaches, palm strewn islands and mountains covered with tropical rainforests. Rio's world famous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon welcome visitors from all over Brazil, Latin America and the world. The city is a capital of sports such as surfing, hang gliding, jetskiing, fishing, sailing, beach volleyball, soccer, jogging, hiking and rapelling. The local restaurants and cafes offer a variety of fresh seafood and meats as well as drinks made from exotic fruits and berries. Rio's bars and music clubs offer cocktails, music, dancing and fun into the late hours of the morning.
Rio served as Brazil's second capital and contains a vast quantity of architectural masterpieces such as palaces, cathedrals, churches, monasteries, fortresses, mansions and municipal buildings from the 16th century to the present time which played an important role in the country's history. It is the only Latin American city to have been the capital of a European empire. This occured in 1808 when the Portuguese royal family and the entire court fled Lisbon as Napoleon's troops were approaching. Thus, the capital of the Portuguese empire moved to Rio de Janeiro for eleven years.
The New Year's celebrations witness 2 million revelers who gather on Copacabana beach all dressed in white for an unforgettable night of musical shows, dancing, fireworks and merrymaking. The world famous Carnival takes place at the Sambadromo (a stadium built for this event) where the city's samba schools compete and dazzle audiences with luxurious costumes and incredible decorations. There are also more than 400 samba bands that take to the streets all over the city in processions that are followed by thousands of masked and costumed revelers. Some of the other must visit tourist attractions include the world famous Maracana stadium, Sugar Loaf Mountain, the Botanical Garden and Corcovado, the mountain which holds the statue of Christ the Redeemer. This statue was voted as one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World. Corcovado contains the only tropical rainforest in a metropolitan area and is full of a rich variety of flora and fauna such as banana palms, mango and papaya trees, orquids, bromeliads as well as parrots, monkeys and ant eaters. Come and experience the wonders of this marvelous city for yourself. Your only problem will be deciding what to do first.
Sao Paulo is a cosmopolitan, most populous city and financial center of Latin America. The inheritance of immigrants and the richness of Brazilian culture form a unique diversity in this city where many parts of the world meet.
The city of Sao Paulo was founded in 1554 by Fathers Jose de Anchieta and Manoel da Nobrega after deciding that the region was suitable for the installation of a college for the catechization of indigenous people. Most of the Bandeiras, exploration expeditions in the Brazilian territory in search of mineral riches, began in the city, constituting itself like one of its symbols.
The importance of Sao Paulo in the national context began with the planting and the sale of coffee in the late 19th century, when this commodity became one of the main pillars of the Brazilian economy. Because of this, immigrants from various countries settled in the city and in neighboring cities in search of a better life in the coffee plantations; most of them were Italians, Germans, Arabs and Japanese - it is in Sao Paulo that the largest Japanese community outside Japan is located.
Foz do Iguassu
Foz do Iguassu is located in southwestern Brazil near the borders of Paraguay and Argentina. This picturesque area which is set deep in the heart of the tropical rain forest contains the largest series of waterfalls in the world. There are hundreds of waterfalls (up to 275) set in a pristine forested national park which teems with exotic animals such as jaguars, pumas, deer and tapirs. The area was sacred to the Guarani Indians who lived here and named it Iguassu, meaning Big Water. The waterfalls cascade down over fast rapids into the Iguassu river. There is an exhilarating optional excursion to go rafting with the Macuco Safari Boat to Devil's Throat, the largest of the waterfalls whose roar can be heard several miles down river. The Bird Park is another interesting attraction which shows exotic bird species such as macaws, flamingos, ostriches, parrots and storks in a 12 acre subtropical forest location. Another place worth visiting is the Itaipu Dam which is located on the Parana River, one of the largest hydroelectric plants in the world. So come visit Iguassu Falls, a unique destination you shouldn't miss!
