9 of the Most Mindblowing Places in Brazil

Brazil Insider Guides
by Matador Creators Nov 7, 2016

FROM THE ANDES TO THE AMAZON to the Atlantic Ocean, Brazil is a pretty awesome country. Its cities are vibrant and exciting, and its wilderness is unlike anything else in the world. You could spend a dozen lifetimes on the Amazon alone.

You shouldn’t cut Brazil from your to-visit list just because the Olympics and the World Cup are over. There’s still a ton to see and a ton to do.

So to give you some inspiration, we dug into our new travelstoke app to find some of the coolest places our users have created. They came up with some pretty amazing stuff, from Sugarloaf Mountain to Iguazu. Check it out.

Sugarloaf Mountain

 Sugarloaf MountainRio de Janeiro, BrazilThe best view for sunset in Rio. My advice is to get here early and snag a spot. It is really crowded up there. #sunset #hiking #photography #viewpoint

Praia da Lagoinha Leste

 Praia da Lagoinha LesteFlorianópolis, BrazilThe views were well worth the hike from Lagoinha do Leste in Florianopolis, Brazil. This island has some of the most amazing beaches I have ever witnessed in my life. #Brazil #Floripa

Morro da pai Inacio
