It’s home to some of the world’s most exciting cities, there are tranquil islands where you can bask in sunshine, the Amazon is on your doorstep for treks that you’ll never forget and you really haven’t lived until you’ve been to a football game there. The food is amazing, the people are friendly, the partying is like nowhere else – we love Brazil, we know you do too.
