Brazil, what is there to see and to do? Some believe that Brazil’s tourist attractions resume symbols of spectacular scenery, like theIguaçu Falls, Rio’s Sugar Loaf, contagious carnival shows, world famous soccer players, etc. Others still assume that Brazil’s greatest gift to the world are girls wearing tangas or fio dental (swimwear made from frazzles of cloth, normally used by Indian women).Nothing against either one, but… this is definitely NOT what Brazil is all about! There is the other Brazil, with its variety of exuberant tropical landscape, the amazingly rich biodiversity of fauna and flora to be observed in theAtlantic and Amazon rainforests, the southern high sierras, thecerrado plains of central and northeast Brazil, not to mention thePantanal wetlands.
In addition, there are the cultural peculiarities of its people, magnificently expressed through thousands of religious, popular and folkloric events. Brazilians are mystical. It is the biggest catholic country but also syncretism has a stronghold here. Brazilians, despite the presence of a huge social gap, are extremely cordial and friendly, always ready for a joke, a song or a dance. Brazilian people and their cultures play an integrated and important part in all of our programs. This is the Brazil we would like you to discover with us!
