Brazil is a big country with a big personality. It’s the fifth largest country in the world, which leaves plenty of room for bustling cities and expansive rainforests.
If a metropolis surrounded by incredible scenery is your idea of an ideal vacation setting, then you must visit Rio de Janeiro. Even though Rio de Janeiro is Brazil’s second largest city, it retains a laid-back atmosphere that’s sure to please.
Now, if you’re looking to visit the rainforest, there’s no better place than the city of Manaus. The city is located in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest at the convergence of the Rio Negro and the Amazon River. What makes this meeting so special is that one river has an almost black color, while the Amazon River is light and sandy. The two colors run alongside each other creating an unforgettable sight.
Brazil’s variety of things to do and see ensures that you will have the trip of a lifetime.
