Iguaza Falls is an awe-inspiring sight where 250 spectacular waterfalls plunge into the river, they are a must-see. To really see how the Brazilians celebrate, Carnival is a sight not to be missed. Held 40 days before Easter and spanning 5 days, at the peak of summer the streets really come alive with parades and a euphoric celebration of song and dance sprinkled with feathers and glitter, there is nothing quite like it. Alongside this, Brazilians love to eat their meat and you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere that does it better with the best BBQ and prime cuts available.
Christ the Redeemer that looks over the whole of Rio de Janeiro is an incredible monument to be seen and unbeatable aerial views can be fulfilled with a helicopter ride to the peak of Corcovado Mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park. You can also take a cog train through the scenic park and enjoy stunning panoramic views of the streets below, bays and beaches at this 30-metre-tall monument.
