Classic Brazil - 3 iconic Brazilian cities: Rio de Janeiro, in the southeast, Iguaçu in the south and Salvador in the northeast. Rio de Janeiro with the ubiquitous Corcovado protecting the city... Iguaçu: Visit the waterfalls and the natural parks of Iguaçu on both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides. Salvador-Bahia: A historic city, rich in its culture, racial mix and old traditions.
The Iguaçu Falls, often referred to as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. You go by boat to approach the falls; 275 waterfalls falling from a height of 135 to 300 feet. You can admire this “wall of water”, from the Argentine side, where the famous “Devil's Throat” can be found. From the Brazilian side, you can gaze upon the panorama of two miles of waterfalls. (whose waters flow into the Amazon rainforest).
Rio de Janeiro, a city whose proximity to the natural surroundings of the stunning Guanabara Bay and the Tijuca Forest (the largest urban forest in the world) won it the title of “Cidade Maravilhosa” (wonderful city). The ubiquitous Corcovado stands guard over the city. Infected by the pure joy of Rio de Janeiro, you will also feel the contagious exhilaration of the samba schools as well as Brazil’s national passion, football, in its largest temple: Maracanã.
