Brazil is proud owner of a selection of addictive urban pleasures: Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. Each moves to its own beat, and each expertly knows just how to woo anyone lucky enough to visit. Discover their beaches, captivating architecture and non-stop nightlife, then try choosing your favourite, or just raise a caipirinha in a toast to two of South America’s greatest cities.

Natural wonders abound, too. The pantanal is a overwhelmingly large area of wetlands, offering great opportunities to see indescribable creatures like the anaconda and jaguar. And further south is the country’s final pitch: Iguaçu Falls, a jungle-clad monster cataract, over 250 waterfalls in total, and arguably the continent’s most spectacular sight.
