 Rio Guide





The Pantanal

This is definitely the place to go for wildlife and nature lovers. The Pantanal region, one of the world's largest wetlands, has a rich and exuberant vegetation system, which spreads over 2300 square kilometers, half of which is in Brazil and the rest divided between Paraguay and Bolivia. The region lies an average 80 to 150 meters above sea level and during the rainy season, from December to March, over half, or 1400 square kilometers are submerged in water making land travel difficult. more>>




Salvador

Salvador, capital of the northeastern state of Bahia, is one of Brazil's cultural highlights. The city's population of over 2 million people is renowned for its spontaneity and easy relaxed manner. The city is an ethnic melting pot and is rich in African culture and colonial legacy. Initially finding your way around the city's winding narrow streets can seem difficult but as most activity is centered around the recently reformed Pelourinho region it can be easily managed on foot (if you can manage the steep hills). more>>




Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro, with its picturesque placing between sea and mountains is one of the world's most scenic cities. Despite its reputation for crime and violence the city is fairly safe for those who use commonsense. Accommodation and restaurants are reasonably prices while public transport is fairly efficient, especially the subway system. The city center is reserved for business and this is where you will find most airline offices, consulates and foreign exchange bureaus as well as many museums and colonial buildings. more>>




The Amazon

Manaus, capital of Brazil‘s largest state of Amazonas, is located in the heart of the Amazon rainforest, home to over 3,000 species of bird and animal life. Over 75% of Amazonas‘ population of 2 million people lives in Manuas, making it the state‘s economic powerhouse. The city‘s economy was given a strong boost by the rubber boom at the end of the 19th century, but later floundered following the arrival of cheap Asian imports in the early part of the 20th century. more>>
