Nothing better than getting in touch with nature and renewing energy to continue with the routine that modern life offers us. Brazil has one of the richest biodiversity in the world, its 8.5 million km² occupy almost half of South America and cover several climatic zones – such as the humid tropics in the North, the semi-arid in the Northeast and temperate areas in the South. Evidently, these climatic differences lead to great ecological variations, forming distinct zones and attractions in the 4 corners of the country: the Amazon Forest, the largest humid tropical forest in the world; the Pantanal, the largest floodplain; the Cerrado of savannas and forests; the Caatinga of semi-arid forests; the fields of the Pampas; and the rainforest of the Atlantic Forest. In addition, Brazil has a marine coast of 3.5 million km², which includes ecosystems such as coral reefs, dunes, mangroves, lagoons, estuaries and swamps.

With so many tourist options, it is even difficult to choose the next destination, we have separated some places that stand out for offering tourists a direct contact with nature. Check out the list of attractions and start planning your next trip!
