Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Rio de Janeiro is one of the most popular destinations in the whole of South America. Tourist attractions are found in abundance; from cable car transits to the top of sugar loaf mountain, drinking cocktails on the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches or hiking up through the south zone to discover the beautiful views of the city, this huge metropolis really has it all. Are you a city scout who wishes to venture through the commercial downtown Rio or a traveller who wants to embrace the panoramic view from Corcovado Mountain - maybe even catch the early sunrise over Guanabara Bay? Whoever you are, here at Rainforest Cruises we can offer you it all. The city of Rio de Janeiro is Brazil’s second largest city packing in a whopping 6.3 million people, 21 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 200 samba schools and 3 million travelers per year, but it is still missing one thing - and thats you! Travels who have a US, Canadian, Australian or Japanese passport, can now take advantage of Brazil’s travel visa drop. Brazil does not require a visa anymore for those nationalities, making travel to Brazil much easier.

Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls

The stunning Iguazu National Park is a member of the aforementioned collection of reputable UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Brazil. Registered in 1984, this immense location is a culmination of over 275 individual waterfalls. It is so gigantic in fact that it spreads across two countries - Argentina and Brazil; 20% resides in Brazil with the other 80% covering Argentinian land. The Brazilian side offers immaculate panoramic views of the falls, whilst the other side of the falls, on the Argentine side creates an opportunity to see the falls from above. Possibly the most distinguished feature of this location is known as the Devil’s Throat which marks the border between both countries. The Iguazu Falls are almost double the height of the Niagara Falls, exceeding the recorded tallness by almost 100 ft! In 2011 it was selected as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and is classed as completely unmissable by many. Some may even say if you haven’t visited Iguazu Falls have you really been to Brazil?
