The Best Tourist Attractions In Brazil

One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Brazil is Caracol Falls. This 131 m tall waterfall by far is not the tallest or largest but it has a rare quality – there are excellent viewpoints where the beauty of falls and surrounding forest and mountains can be observed.
Falls have formed on the basalt cliffs of Serra Geral volcanic formation. Waterfall has two cascades. Upper cascade consists of multiple smaller cascades, its total height is approximately 10 m. After some 100 m comes the second – by far the largest plunge. Here the stream falls over an overhanging cliff edge. Read More
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, located on the oriental coast of the Maranhão state, is the prime tourism destination in this state. It is inserted on the Cerrado region and has a strong influence from the Caatinga and the Amazon regions, so you can find specimens that are common from these 3 biomes. In its 155 thousand ha, it shelters diverse and fragile ecosystems, as the restinga (coastal vegetation), the mangrove and a dune feld – which occupies 2/3 of the total area of the National Park – and that is the main attraction of this Park, due to the lagoons that form in between the dunes on the region’s rainy season. The Park’s inserted in 3 maranhenses municipalities, that possess the infrastructure for the reception and the conduction of visitors: Barreirinhas, Santo Amaro and Primeira Cruz. Read More

Part national park, part UNESCO World Heritage site, the Pantanal is the world’s largest tropical wetland, covering over 70,000 square miles—an area the size of Washington State—in the smack-dab center of South America.
Brazil can lay claim to most of the region, but, as nature recognizes no political boundaries, the Pantanal spills into neighboring Paraguay and Bolivia. And though it’s often overshadowed by the Amazon rain forest to the north, the Pantanal quietly boasts the highest concentration of wildlife on the continent. Read More
Comprised of 21 islands and islets, the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha is a paradise of indescribable beauty, and was declared a Natural World Heritage Site by Unesco. For the islands to continue to preserve their nature, the number of visitors is limited and you have to pay an environmental preservation fee to enter the island.
The combination of crystal clear waters, golden sands, and marine life fascinate people from all over the world. Its beaches are divided between the inside sea (waters toward the Brazilian mainland) and the outside sea (waters toward the Atlantic Ocean).  Read More
