How to Find the Best Brazil Hotels with Venere
Brazil is the largest country in South America, taking up almost half the continent, as well as being the fifth largest country in the world.

What's Brazil Like?
No matter which town or city you visit in Brazil, there are sure to be plenty of historical and cultural attractions, with plenty of shopping, bars, and restaurants. The popular city of Rio de Janeiro contains some of the most iconic landmarks, such as the huge Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue overlooking the city, the hikers paradise of Pedra da Gavea, and the Petropolis old town, former seat of the Brazilian Emperor, and now a museum. The capital city of Brasília is still young, having only been founded in 1960, yet is home to several malls such as Brasilia Shopping, Shopping Iguatemi, and Parkshopping. For afternoon walks and picnics, you can enjoy parks and gardens such as Parque da Cidade (City Park), Chapada Imperial natural reserve, and Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco (Ecological Park Don Bosco).
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Brazil
The climate in Brazil differs greatly depending upon the area, and there are said to be five different climate types throughout the country. Summer lasts from December to March, and temperatures can vary from 25°C in the north, to 28°C in the south. Many of the larger cities in Brazil are popular with tourists, and as a result can attract plenty of pick pockets, so ensure that you properly secure your bags and pockets, and if possible, keep your bags fixed to your front. Although many Brazilians speak English, getting around the cities as well as communicating with the locals will go much smoother if you carry around a Portuguese pocket phrase book.
