Sex, dancing and partying: it seems the Brazilians have made a science of all that is fun in life. The world champions of hedonism were no doubt aided by a lush land and steamy climate, but still there is something different about Brazilians. For one, they are the most diverse country in Latin America, not to mention the continent's only former Portuguese colony. One of the largest countries in the world, Brazil certainly has plenty to see-the Amazon and Iguazu falls come to mind-but more than anything it's the Brazilian passion for life, epitomised in Rio's Carnival celebrations, that will make you fall in love and want to return again.
Iguassu Falls (TSAIFN)
Experience the stunning beauty and raw power of one of the greatest natural wonders on earth—Iguassu Falls.
