From the Publisher

“…the best guide to Brazil available. For such a large country the author does an excellent job”

Dr RH Webber, Scotland UK

“Excellent. I was a week in Rio and Sao Paulo. I used to live in Sao Paulo. I found the book great for both – especially for the nightlife, restaurants and live bands and the stuff beyond the obvious.”

Read an Excerpt

There are few countries as beautiful and vibrant as Brazil. In the Amazon, virgin forest stretches unbroken for more than 2500km in every direction. The table-top mountains of the interior are covered in medicinal plants and drained by mineral-rich rivers that tumble through gorges and rush over spectacular tiered waterfalls, up to 3km wide.
