Gorgeous Places to Visit in Brazil
Just the mention of Brazil brings to mind long white sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets, palm trees, and unmatched natural beauty.
So where should you visit when you head to this amazing country?
Tourist attractions abound, but there are many gorgeous natural sights to see that aren't necessarily on the beaten path. It's well worth taking the time to see these naturally beautiful spots in the country of Brazil!
Pantanal Matogrossense National Park
This national park encompasses 520 square miles of tropical wetlands, forests, a river delta, and floodplains. It supports an amazing array of bird life and wildlife, not to mention quite a diverse number of aquatic plant species.
It's home to several hundred species of fish, reptiles, and mammals along with several thousand invertebrate species. You can take one of the tourist tours or hire a personal tour guide who will show you non-touristy areas, where you may have more luck at seeing more of the wildlife and getting to know more about the area from his personal experiences and expertise.
The Chapada Diamantina National Park
Within this stunningly beautiful national park, you can see canyons, cascading waterfalls, and scenery unmatched anywhere in the world. It's the perfect place to hike, swim, snorkel, scuba dive, explore caves, or just relax.
If you're really adventurous, you can hire a guide to take you on excursions into the wilderness that last either a day or up to five days. Some of the highlights of this national park include Pratinha, Lapa Doce, Cachoeira de Sossego, Poco Encantado, Cachoeira do Buracao, Cachoeira da Fumaca, and Capao Valley.
This beautiful reserve area is known best for its transparently clear rivers. Even the locals plan to visit this part of the country because of its beauty and diversity. You can go fishing, swimming, or snorkeling in the rivers and through the waterfalls. The rivers are filled with brightly colored tropical fish and natural vegetation.
For those who prefer to stay on land, there are adventurous trails to hike, caverns to explore, and cycling trails to ride. There are deep blue lakes hiding inside the caverns too.
Fernando de Noronha
A tropical paradise, Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago found off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. It consists of twenty-one islets and islands, but the main island is about 7.1 miles across. Tours are permitted, but they only allow several hundred people onto the island at any time in order to continue to preserve the delicate balance of wildlife and nature. You can snorkel or scuba dive if you like. Keep an eye out for dolphins and sea tortoises, which are seen frequently by visitors.
These are just a few of the gorgeous places you can visit and enjoy in Brazil. It's always a good idea to plan ahead and get all the details before heading out so you're fully prepared to enjoy your time away from the hustle and bustle of the cities for a time.
The sights and scenery you'll experience in Brazil is unlike anything you'll see in the rest of the world – the beauty there is unmatched and worth the trip!
