Brazil Tourism

Brazil can well be called a land of passion - the people of Brazil are vibrant, energetic, and full of an irrepressible zest for life. Visit the country during the Carnival to get a sense of the essence that is Brazil. The thick Amazon forests, the pristine tropical beaches, the long winding rivers and the people themselves make Brazil a land full of mystery and surprises.

Brazil gets it’s name from the tropical redwood - the pau do brasil, which the first settlers exported from the country. Occupying almost half the continent, Brazil is the largest country in South America. It ranks fifth largest in area and sixth in population when compared to other countries in the world. Distances in Brazil are enormous. Its population is over half that of all of South America ---over 65% of the population is below 30 years of age.

Brazil is young country and promises to be an exciting one.

Did you know that Brazil got its name from the nut and not the other way round.
