Top Attractions to See in Brazil

If you are looking to plan an unforgettable holiday experience, visit Brazil to immerse yourself in the unique wildlife, flavour and culture of this amazing South American country. Known worldwide as a top destination for Jaguar watching, Brazil also has many other top attractions waiting to be discovered by the curious traveller. The fifth largest country in the world, Brazil's superb wildlife exists side by side with its wealth of history and culture. Here are just a few sites not to be missed.

Teatro Amazonas
This grand opera house, with its colourful dome and intricate architecture, can be found in Manaus, a city which lies deep in centre of the Brazilian rain forest. Built from materials imported from all over the world and decorated with the very best of Italian furnishings, the Teatro Amazonas will amaze you with its impressive grandeur. If you plan to do some Jaguar watching in the Brazilian rain forest, be sure to make a stop here and enjoy a performance in this iconic opera house for a change of pace.

Iguazu Falls
Famous for being one of the world's great natural wonders, the Iguazu Falls' thunderous roar can be heard from miles around as you approach. In a gigantic display of nature's power, spanning the border between Brazil and Argentina this impressive waterfall rises up to 80 metres above river valley. When on a tour Jaguar watching in Brazil, this famous waterfall will be an impressive stop-off on your travel itinerary.

Christ the Redeemer
This magnificent statue, perched high on the Corcovado Mountain overlooking the city of Rio De Janeiro, is the world largest art deco statue and one of the new seven wonders of the world. Visited by almost two million tourists every year, the Cristo Redentor is a truly amazing Brazilian icon. Travel to the base by railway or walk up the 222 stairs for an inspiring view overlooking the bright blue waters of Guanabara Bay.

The Amazon River
No trip to go Jaguar watching in Brazil would be complete without a boat ride down the Amazon River. Stretching for 6400 kilometres, it is the second largest river in the world and home to over 3000 species of fish, including the much feared carnivorous Piranha. The Amazon River provides drainage for the northern half of South America and is responsible for the discharge of 20% of all the fresh water that annually flows into the oceans. Whilst Jaguar watching in Brazil, enjoy a cruise down the Amazon and discover for yourself the diversity of animal and plant life that inhabits this exotic region of the world.
