Historical cities of pre-Columbian through the Spanish landings await those who love to follow history. Here is a top ten list that includes some of these locations and sites that await you.
1. Brazilian Beaches
First on our list of top ten places to visit in Brazil is Nakaau, because along the coastal side of Brazil there are over fifteen hundred beaches to choose from. More than 500 islands dot the waters off the coast and preserve an undaunted natural beauty not seen anywhere else in the world. Most of the off shore island are protected natural habitats for many species of plants and animals. A great place to visit after a morning nap on the beach for a ecological adventure.
2. Amazing Landscapes & Ecosystems
There are several famous attractions in Brazil that are a must see relating to the ecological and biological diversity of the country. One of them is the Rio Grande Do sol. It is part of the Amazon rain forest and river. Also in the area is another attraction the great Iguaçu falls. Each of these attractions are worthwhile and with the urgent responses that need to preserve seriously endangered natural treasures, ecotourism and ecological protection travel initiatives are becoming common place. This makes it more possible for more visitors and travelers to enjoy Brazil in a more responsible way and it opens opportunities for local communities.
3. Cities and Towns
While visiting Brazil you will find that most of the population lives in the cities with tremendous urban sprawl. But, there are a lot of in valuable smaller historical towns to visit as well like Outo Preto along with the capitol, Brasilia. Also along the coast you have the famous Rio de Janerio and An Pablo that are defiantly on the wish list of most travelers.

4. Brazilian Culture
Brazilian Culture has been around for hundreds of years and it is made of a population of very divers and unique individuals. Each of these cultures has left a significant imprint on the modern society of Brazil. Each has their own notable expressions such as Bossa vova, capoeira, and the yellow soccer jersey. Each has their own strife in the fight for their culture identity. It is the people here who have truly made Brazil the wonderful place it is today.

5. Celebrations & Events
Of course what type of culture would Brazil have without the famous Canival. It is tremendous nationwide celebration. If it’s it one time a year to pick go between February and March this is a celebration that is not one you want to miss. Of course there is the annual Easter celebrations as well were caravans of people line up with prayers and walk to local mass to celebrate the rise of their lord and savior Jesus Christ.
Some other notable celebrations are listed here as well ….

Festas Juninas
Festa do Divino
Festa Nacional do Índio
LGBT Pride Parade in São Paulo
St. Vito Festival
6. Brazilian Cuisine
Along with a diverse culture Brazil brings with its wonderful and diverse cooking as well. If your looking for chopped meat cooked in open fire pits or upscale restaurants most major cities will give you both. I always recommend to the adventure traveler to take a look at the local street vendors where you can get authentic meals still made the same way they were by their ancestors.
Brazil is becoming more and more famous for the great chefs it is bringing to the table. There are celebrations that will go along well with this through a lot of Brazils food festivals. Bring a losses belt and a sturdy fork so you can sample as much as possible.
A couple of food festivals that you might enjoy are:
Brasil Sabor, the largest culinary festival in Brazil
Comida di Buteco, the annual Belo Horizonte Bar Food Contest
7. Travel-Friendly Weather
Brazil is also a famous paradise for its unique weather that allows your chances while traveling to have a warm sunny vacation. Not all the time, not everywhere it’s always a wise decision to make sure your plans are in line with the predictions. But a majority of places like the northeastern coastal cities like Fortaleza have sunshine three hundred days out of the year. Of course the farther south the sunny days are great for shorts weather and trips to the beach. But also get chilly so you can light up the fire place and cuddle with your loved one at night.
8. Brazil's Hotels
The one major industry that has taken great strides in improving is the major hotel chains. They are continuing to invest in a wide arrange of marketing and premium luxuries to help the weary traveler feel extra pampered. There is quite an increase in both up scale and moderate lodging. But be weary and specific c about what you want and you may be able to save a little bit of the green stuff in your wallet.
9. Tourism is a Priority to Brazil
The government of Brazil recently announced that the ministry of tourism will invest heavily in tourism of the privet sector in many cities and villages in the country. This really means better infrastructure, jobs, and improvement of community life for Brazilians all over the country. Making these improvements will no doubt lead Brazil to be in the top 10 destination in the world.
10. Brazil is a Gateway to South America
Finally the number ten reason that Brazil is the place to be..Brazil has awesome neighbors. Make it your hub to some of the greatest attractions in South America. With easy access to many countries you can have a month’s worth of adventure and still not see or do it all. But, enjoy it more and more every time you go.
