Top 5 things to do in Brazil
1. Christ the Redeemer
The infamous art deco statue is eponymous with Brazil and is the first thing that most people think about when they imagine Brazil. The 98-foot statue can be accessed via train for panoramic and unforgettable views of the capital.
2. Sugarloaf Mountain
The mountain is said to take its name from its resemblance to refined sugar, as it takes its place jutting out from the beaches of Guanabara Bay. This iconic mountain can be reached by cable car.
3. Parque Nacional De Tijuca
These 39 square kilometres are all that is left of the rainforest that used to surround Rio De Janeiro, and its striking waterfalls and canopies strike a hard message against deforestation.
4. Iguazu Falls
Bordering Argentina, the Iguazu Falls make up the largest waterfall system in the world and are rivalled only by Niagara and Victoria Falls for its sheer might and beauty.
5. Pantanal Wetlands
These wetlands make up the largest wetland area in the world and are one of your best chances of seeing the notoriously shy jaguar in the wild.
What injections do I need for Brazil?
In addition to routine vaccinations, you should ensure that you have the hepatitis A vaccine and have up-to-date boosters for typhoid and tetanus. You will only need the rabies vaccine if you are going to come into close contact with animals. However, you should still take out extensive travel insurance for any trip abroad in case of illness or emergency.
Is Brazil safe for tourists?
Brazil can be safe if you take precautions such as not entering favelas, avoiding beaches at night and knowing where you are travelling so that you can avoid areas that could be known for violent crime. However, violent crime is common, so you should be aware of your surroundings at all times.
What documents do I need to travel to Brazil?
UK citizens will only need their passport to enter Brazil. However, you must satisfy immigration officers on arrival that you have enough money for your visit and a place of accommodation. You must keep your immigration landing card for the duration of your stay.
