With its roster of global sports events, epic scenery and colourful beach life, Brazil buzzes with energy. Feel the spray of Iguaçu Falls; visit the mystical cult houses of samba­-soaked Salvador; and be hypnotized by glittering dancers at Rio Carnaval. Whether you want to venture deep into the Amazon or try to find the best sushi restaurant in São Paulo, use our map of Brazil below to start planning your trip.

There’s plenty to explore in this vast country, from wandering the charming, cobbled streets of Ouro Preto to visiting Brasília, the country’s out­-of-­this-­world, futuristic capital. Away from the cities, meanwhile, you can snorkel with tropical fish in the natural aquarium, Acquário Natural or get lost in the Pantanal, the world’s largest wetlands and one of the best places to see wildlife in South America.
