Cheap flights from Brazil

One of the largest countries in the Americas in terms of land area, Brazil dominates the list of one of the most-visited countries in the region due to a myriad number of land resources. Dramatic red-rock canyons, raging waterfalls, and idyllic islands, as well as one of the greatest rainforests in the world can be found here. These all make up an ecotourist's dream, especially when venturing to the Amazon, which is a vital regulator of the climate.

As one of the rising economic powers in South America, Brazil has been praised for the huge improvement of the way of life in the country. However, major strides in raising millions out of poverty are not fully managed, as many still live in favelas or slums. Other than this commendable growth, Brazil also created an AIDS program that serves as a model for developing countries, producing cheaper generic AIDS medicines. The country, however, is still in the red for not giving more protection for the Amazon, which has long been undergoing deforestation.

Where to go

One type of focus on an itinerary for Brazil can be its natural wonders. Other than arranging for a trip to the outback, tourists can check out the Mundo Amazonico. This 29-hectare reserve was designed to preserve endangered plant and animal species of the Amazon and also provides seminars on environmental education. The extensive botanical gardens also have more than 700 species of flora that can be found in tours with different themes. Upon finishing a visit here, tourists can venture to the Parque Unipraias, a six-hectare urban reserve. Tourists can traverse here 500 meters of walking trails or ride the bondinho, a cable-car system connecting three stations between the Barra Sul to the Morro da Aguada. A rollercoaster for children can also be enjoyed here, as well as a zipline ride across the Praia Laranjeiras.

Those who want to check out cultural landmarks can turn to Pelourinho, the main attraction of the Cidade Alta. This UNESCO World Heritage site is composed of colonial buildings and splendid churches. Cobblestoned streets can also be found here, as well as schools of music, dance, and capoeira. There is also the Palacio da Alvorada to visit, the first structure to be inaugurated in the city of Brasilia. Tourists going this way will find Dragoes da Independencia guards, who served in the War of Independence.

One observation of South America is that it is divided only between Brazil and Argentina, with other countries following after to share the remaining territory. This can be thought about, especially when one is flying from Rio de Janeiro to Buenos Aires. The trip is usually around three hours, which allows one to check out the Cementerio de la Recoleta. This large cemetery features streets with impressive statues and marble sarcophagi. A number of the dusty coffins hold the remains of famous personalities, from past presidents and military heroes to politicians, and people from rich families.

The Museo de Arte Latinamericano de Buenos Aires is also a must-visit, where one can behold a fine collection of Latin American art from various well-known artists. The Plaza Dorrego, the city's oldest plaza, should also be part of the list, which dates to the 18th century.

When one is on a trip abroad, a trip to Copenhagen can be considered. Although it may take 13 hours or more to get there from Rio de Janeiro, tourists can visit here for the Tivoli Gardens, a theme park with a variety of amusement rides. After enjoying a round at the roller coasters, there’s also Freetown Christiana, a commune in eastern Christianshavn. It features the infamous Pusher Street, which is lined with seemingly illegal hash and marijuana dealers, as well as a number of DIY homes, gardens, and some craft shops, eateries, music venues, and other attractions.
