Contrast this with the tranquility of the coast with its vast, golden beaches stretching over 7000 km from north to south and you will find an array of experiences to enjoy on your holiday in Brazil.
For some, the highlight of their Brazil holidays is Salvador de Bahia, Brazil's most lively city with its colonial architecture and African spirit and also another great city to catch Carnival.
Or perhaps your perfect holiday to Brazil is wildlife spotting in the Pantanal wetlands, where animals and birds are more visible than in the jungle due to the less dense vegetation. You could also indulge in that other great Brazilian passion by catching a game at Rio's Maracana Stadium, the home of Brazilian football.
Wherever you choose to go, Brazil holidays are a feast to be savoured by all the senses, and offers an incredible array of destinations for discerning travellers from adventure trips to total relaxation in top-class luxury retreats.
