Brazil by Sky Bird Travel & Tours

Brazil is on a roll, and its star city of Rio de Janeiro is the hub of all the action. Already the ninth largest economy in the world, Brazil may well reach the rank of 5th by the time the Olympics make their debut in 2016. Now is a good time to get to know Brazil because the 14.4 billion dollars scheduled to be spent preparing the country to host the Olympics is likely to forever change its face.

Did we mention that Brazil is also hosting the 2014 World Cup? The two sporting events have the nation bursting with pride, the tour operators and hoteliers working overtime and the city struggling to upgrade the nation’s tourism infrastructure. The International Olympic Committee chose Rio over Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo, and the Brazilians seem determined not to let the opportunity pass without giving it their best.

60-Second Geography

Brazil

 

Rio may be the world’s most misunderstood city. Ask someone who has never been and they basically know Carnaval, an iconic statue of Christ, bikinis bursting with attitude and that the town is ringed by favalas. But there is so much more to Rio and the world is about to discover the energy of a town fueled by samba and soccer.
  • Catch a flight to Cuiabá and head down the Transpantaneira into the Pantanal. This flooded landscape is a bird-watcher’s dream, so bring your binoculars and several pencils to keep track of all new species you’ll be seeing.

  • Fortaleza. Fortaleza, a large, modern city where bold, new architecture contrasts, has become one of the preferred beach destinations among Brazilian and Latin American visitors due to the wide white sands and the tall coconut palms.
  • For a true nature experience, head to the to the Amazon. The species diversity is greater here, but the very richness of the foliage makes the animals and birds much harder to see. So enjoy the trees. And the monkeys, and dolphins, and parrots. Go out on a kayak trip on the upper Amazon with Amazon Mystery Tours.
  • Dine on world cuisines from Italy to Japan in Zona Sul. Bohemian Santa Catarina tempts with German food and Brazilian favorites like feijoada (meat and bean stew) and moqueca (seafood stew). Business people on the run enjoy sandwiches and exotic juices at casas de suco in Centro and snack on sardines in Beco das Sardinhas. Nibble on finger-food and crepes in bar-lined Lapa and join hungry revelers at Copacabana’s late-night Cervantes for classic delectable ham and pineapple sandwiches.
  • For a taste of Brazil’s scintillating and exciting culture, plan your trip during the world-famous Carnaval in Rio. This festival is the largest in the country; it lasts a week and features parades, balls and a multitude of activities for the entire family.
