What to do in Brazil

Rio is its most popular destination, and Sugar Loaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer Statue, and Ipanema and Copacabana Beaches are rightly famous throughout the world. Rio is also the centre of Carnival celebrations, although cities throughout Brazil also hold there own celebrations that are just as much fun as Rio's. Brasilia, the nation's capital, is a planned city and a feast for fans of modernist architecture. Colonial architecture can be found in places like Salvador, Olinda, and in sleepy little towns high in the mountains. Among the country's natural wonders include the Iguazu Falls, the widest waterfalls in the world on the border with Argentina and the wonders of the Amazon rainforest.

Best time to fly to Brazil

Brazil is a massive country and when you choose to go will depend on your destination. Rio's high season is from December to March, which is summer in the southern hemisphere. November and April, however, are also good times to visit. Be advised that if you're visiting for Carnival to book your hotel well in advance. In the country's north, such as Manaus, which is the gateway to the Amazon, you will actually want to avoid heading there from December to March when the wet season is in full swing. April to June are generally the best times to visit Manaus instead.

Tips and additional advisories

Brazil has attracted quite a bit of attention because of the high crime rate in some of its cities. You should take steps to minimize your risk, such as not wearing valuable jewellery, not carrying large amounts of cash, and avoiding poorly lit and deserted streets at night. Brazil has also been the epicentre of the Zika virus outbreak and the Canadian government recommends that women who are or are planning on becoming pregnant should avoid travel to the country.
