BRAZIL

Brazil was my highlight of South America. In many ways, it’s the least Latin American country. With 48% land cover of South America and having the most spoken language, it could be a continent in it’s own right.

Where other South American countries boast stunning Andean Mountains and ancient civilizations as the top ticket items…. Brazil is where beaches, culture and openness shines. This place is the land of smiles.
