There are iconic cities, like Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Salvador; there's the watery wilderness of the Pantanal, the ground-shaking Iguaçu Falls, a spectacular coastline, carnival, samba, football ... Clearly you are going to have to make a few hard choices when it comes to planning a trip Brazil. Use our selection of itineraries as a guideline for what is possible within different time frames, and have a look at our sections on the best time to visit Brazil and places to visit in Brazil.
