SMILE. YOU’VE LANDED IN BRAZIL.

Holding the title of the world’s fifth largest country, Brazil dominates almost half of South America. Covering more than five-million-square miles, it spans four time zones and exceeds the size of the contiguous 48 United States. Brazil’s territory displays great topographical variety, housing mountains, plains, rainforests, islands and 4,600 miles of Atlantic coastline—a seemingly endless stretch of white and gold beaches.

Brazil is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet, home to approximately four million plant and animal species. The Pantanal, a 75,000-square mile wetland, is located in Brazil’s southern interior. During the dry season (April to September), this area brims with fauna—toucans, jaguars, giant river otters and an estimated 1,000 bird species.

The Amazon Basin, covering the country’s northwest, contains the world’s largest rainforest, home to one-third of all species on the planet. Brazil’s human population is equally diverse. European, Asian, African, and indigenous peoples all add to the cultural milieu.

Fortaleza Brazil Pipa Praia do Amor

This country is home to both the largest Japanese population outside of Japan and to the largest Italian population outside Italy. Each region of the country exudes a delightfully unique local flavor—from the German villages of Santa Catarina to the Afro-Brazilian cities of the northeast.

MACHU PICCHU

First light at Machu Picchu is an unforgettable experience. At dawn, the site is often concealed by low clouds. As the sun rises, the mists slowly dissipate to reveal walls and plazas — first in glimpses, then in majesty.
