Gaze down on sparkling Rio from Pão de Açúcar, hear the thunderous roar of Iguaçu Falls, ply the winding waterways of the Amazon in a canoe; all with your trusted travel companion.

Lonely Planet writer Regis St Louis expains why he loves Brazil "The music, the beaches, the wildlife and, most importantly, the people: it's hard not to fall for Brazil. Rio de Janeiro is one of my favourite cities. I never tire of watching the sunset from arpoador, chasing the samba scene in Lapa or wandering the village-like streets of Santa Teresa. but Rio is just the beginning, and in Brazil there really is no end. I have fond memories spotting wildlife especially in the Pantanal and the Amazon, making friends in small towns and finding incredible musicians in unlikely places. There's really no other country that offers so much."
