60-Second Geography


The largest country in South America is also the most populous and the most visited by travelers. Brazil’s varied landscape and travel themes- from the Amazon to the beaches of Rio are the stuff that avid travelers dream about all of their lives. More Europeans than Americans visit each year, but that mix is changing dramatically with the buying power of the dollar and the discovery of Brazil as a new “in” travel destination. Tourism is of central importance for the nation, and the government has fostered investment in infrastructure and training for the hospitality industry. An intense focus on sustainable and environmentally friendly travel promises to preserve this natural wonderland for generations to come.
