Things to do in the Amazon include bird watching, trekking/hiking, climbing and taking boat journeys along the river. Without doubt, a tour to Brazil is incomplete without a trip to the Amazon. The park is known as a good example of tropical rainforest conservation in the Amazon. It houses spotted jaguars, manatees, pink river dolphins, and numerous other species of animals and plants. Every one can not enter into the park as entry into the park is restricted; express permission from the Brazilian government is required to enter the reserve.
Iguassu Falls or Iguacu Falls:
Iguassu Falls is sometimes described as being one of the 7 natural Wonders of the World. It is said that the best time to visit the Iguacu Falls is between October and December, and as this is such a magnificent sight, it is highly recommended that you should make arrangements to stay at least one night here before moving on to your next destination. The falls are shared by the Iguazú National Park (Argentina) and Iguaçu National Park (Brazil). These parks were designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1984 and 1987, respectively. The width of Iguassu Falls is Four times the width of Niagara Falls, Iguazu Falls are divided by various islands into separate waterfalls. One of the best known is Devil's Throat, or Gargantua del Diablo with its perpetual spray high over the falls. Other notable falls are the San Martin, Bossetti, and Bernabe Mendez.
Brasilia is the capital of Brazil. It hosts 91 foreign embassies. It was constructed by the country's leading architects, Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, in the 1950s. It is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Brasilia was intended as the administrative capital of Brazil, a function it serves well to this day. However, the city's planners had not taken into consideration any private enterprise existing in Brasilia. The city of Brasilia is little more than a sprawling mess of modern building design. As such a new city, the city also lacks from having any real claim to heritage. Brasilia is no doubt a worth visiting place. Brasilia houses Brasília International Airport, which is a major airline hub for the rest of the country, connecting the capital to all major Brazilian cities and many international destinations. It is the third most important airport of Brazil, in terms of passengers and aircraft movements. The city's planned design included specific areas for almost everything, including accommodation, Hotels Sectors North and South.
