A distant drum beats out a contagious rhythm. A frisson of energy ripples through the animated crowd and the dancing begins, flashes of vibrant colour and flamboyant movements bringing the streets to life: Welcome to Brazil.
From the instantly recognisable skyline of Rio de Janeiro, to the old architecture of fun-loving Salvador and the multicultural street carnivals in Recife, Brazil is known world-wide for its thriving party scene and warm, playful people. Although urban areas still face social challenges such as crime and poverty, sensible choices and an open-minded attitude will ensure your stay is safe and satisfying.
This mega-diverse country certainly stands out in South America, and not only in terms of size.

Home to the awe-inspiring Amazon rainforest, as well as a plethora of tropical islands, lakes, caves, mountains and waterfalls, not to mention a vast collection of exotic creatures, Brazil is positively dense with life. This is one party you can’t afford to miss.
