The largest country in South America, Brazil, is kind of hard to explore without resorting to domestic flights. And many travelers arrive here by plane, as well, although there are buses connecting Brazil to the rest of South American countries.

Famous for its football (soccer for the North Americans), Carnival, Amazon with its rain forest, Iguacu Falls and vibrant nightlife, Brazil is a country which easily gets under your skin and you fall in love with it.

Citizens from most of South American countries can enter Brazil without a visa, but with a valid ID card and stay here for up to 90 days. Citizens of the European Union don’t need a visa either and can enter the country with a valid passport and stay here for up to 90 days. Both US and Canadian citizens need a visa to enter Brazil.
