Brazil is one of the top tourist destinations in the world for many reasons. One is the countless number of tourist spots all over the country.

For this video, we’ll be taking a look at 5 of the best places you definitely have to visit in Brazil.

1. Christ The Redeemer

It may not be the largest statue in the world despite standing at 709 meters, but the Christ, the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, is larger than life.

Anytime Brazil shows up in movies or shows; it’s difficult to find one where this iconic statue doesn’t show up for at least a couple of seconds. The statue is situated in Tijuca National Park, where plenty of activities like hikes and weddings take place all the time.

2. Copacabana

Copacabana definitely rings a bell. Next to Christ the Redeemer, it’s one of the most iconic spots in Brazil and South America.

Copacabana has plenty to offer. Aside from being Rio’s main attraction at the heart of everything, it’s also home to an amazing beach lined with restaurants, cafes, and other interesting buildings you can tour.

3. Sugar Loaf

Sugar Loaf isn’t as recognizable as Christ the Redeemer or Copacabana, but this rounded rock peak in a promontory in Rio de Janeiro is definitely a must-visit.

Located 394 meters above sea level, Sugar Foaf summit is one of the best spots to hike to when in Brazil. Tours, cable cars, and fort visits are some of the things you can do in this promontory.

4. Iguaçu Falls

Iguaçu Falls is one monumental spot. This majestic wonder also acts as a border for Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. At its highest, the falls measure over 100 meters and span over three kilometers in width.

Not only is the place enticing, but it’s also home to more than a thousand bird and mammal species. Ocelots, otters, deers, and even capybaras also reside in this natural wonder.

5. The Amazon Rainforest

Last but definitely not least is the largest rainforest in the entire world. Although nine countries technically have jurisdiction over the Amazon, Brazil is one of the most accessible among them.

This 6.7 million square kilometer rainforest is estimated to the house at least 10% of all species on earth and is home to 47 million people. With so much to visit, a tour would definitely be best.
