Brazil is the largest country in South America, known for its beautiful (and sometimes nude) beaches, gorgeous people, the excitement to be found in Rio de Janeiro, and of course, for the world-famous Carnaval. Brazil is famous for its coffee, numerous tours and explorations of the Amazon River, and thousands of miles of beautiful beach coastline along the Atlantic Ocean.
Population and Language
Brazilians are a diverse group of ethnicities, with half being Caucasian, just about half mulatto or of mixed white and black ancestry, and thousands of immigrants of Japanese, German, and Middle Eastern cultures. The main language spoken in Brazil is Portuguese, but Spanish is also spoken in schools. Other languages found throughout the country include Italian, German, English, and Japanese.
The main religion of Brazil is Roman Catholic, followed by a percentage of other Christian denominations including Protestants. Interestingly, Brazil inhabitants also classify themselves as spiritualists, and many practice voodoo or Bantu, while a small percentage classify themselves as atheist or agnostic.
Nearly 200 million individuals call Brazil home, many clustered in her major cities.
Major Cities and Tourist Destinations
While Rio de Janiero is perhaps the most famous and popular tourist destination in Brazil, with just over 11 million residents, São Paulo, located south of Rio de Janeiro, is also extremely popular. The capital city of Brazil is Brasilia, with just over three million residents. Salvador, Fortaleza and Sao Luis are also popular destinations. Amazon River tours and exploration also attract thousands of travelers a year, with the city of Manaus serving as a halfway point between the North Atlantic and of the Amazon deep into the interior where it disappears into the wilds of Colombia and Peru. Other popular tourism destinations in Brazil include but are not limited to:
- Spend some time in the Amazonia National Park

The eastern coastline of Brazil borders the Atlantic Ocean, while its northern and eastern boundaries are subtropical in nature. Temperatures throughout the country remain moderately tropical throughout the year, although weather and temperatures vary depending on location; the flat, rolling lowlands in the north, narrow coastline beltway, and its mountainous regions each experience cooler or warmer temperatures depending on geographical location.
The main currency of Brazil is the real. Brazil enjoys a relatively stable economy due to its massive agricultural, mining, and manufacturing industries. The GDP of Brazil averages approximately U.S. $2.5 trillion dollars, buffeted by its services industries, industrial and agriculture labor forces. Brazil exports just over U.S. $250 billion worth of commodities year, mainly in coffee, transport equipment and footwear, and imports approximately U.S. $225 billion a year, mainly in auto parts, electronics, machinery, and chemical products.
Traveling through Brazil is an exciting experience, with numerous airports, railways, and buses to get travelers from here to there. In the cities and rural areas surrounding cities, car hires are extremely popular, as they allow visitors to freedom of driving up along the coastline on their own, exploring deeper into the interior, and enjoying more autonomy. Major airports in Brazil include but are not limited to the Dario Guarita Airport in São Paulo, the President Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport in Brasilia, the Galeao-Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport in Rio de Janiero, and the Mal. Cunha Machado international Airport in Sao Luiz.
