A mixture of races makes Brazil a very peculiar country with a rich culture.
Miscegenation began between the Indian, the African and the Portuguese. However, with the arrival of immigrants from various continents: Europe, Asia, Jews and Arabs, its result was a joyful people, open to new things that only exist in Brazil.
Its exuberance is found everywhere: in the vastness of the desert sands of the Marañonenses Savannah, in the 7,000 km of beaches, rivers that look like seas because of their width; in the Amazon Forest, the largest on the planet earth; in the 250,000 km² of Pantanal, the impressive nature reserve, a World Heritage Site.
Its beauty lies also in the 44 national parks that preserve the ecosystem; in the archaeological sites of Piaui; in the sky of Brasilia and in the plains of Rio Grande do Sul. In the impressive mountains of Minas Gerais and in the strange and noisy meeting of waters in the states of Amapá and Pará.
Brazil is known internationally for its Carnival, soccer and for tourist attractions like the Corcovado, the Amazon, the Pantanal and Iguazu Falls. However, just like its people and their culture, route options in the country are diverse and sensational.
In cities like Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Salvador, visitors have a range of cultural options like museums, fine dining and music of all styles, from popular to erudite.
Its nature deserves to be highlighted, with different ecological parks and ecosystems: the Amazon rainforest, caatinga in the Northeast, Atlantic bush in the Southeast, marshlands in the Midwest and grasslands in the South. Moreover, in cities like Curitiba and Rio de Janeiro, you can visit botanical gardens that blend their historical value with the Brazilian biodiversity.
Brazil lies on the route of most international airlines and Brazilian airports have invested heavily in improving their infrastructure to provide accessibility for the comfort of the tourists.
Also bus stations in the country are very spacious, and investments in new roads and signage allow tourists to travel safely.
For Mercosur citizens, going to Brazil is even easier as they are not required to have a visa to enter the country. They just have to present their passport or identity card.
