Brazil’s 9 Best Cities

Foz do Iguacu

The town of Foz do Iguacu is famous for one attraction, a true world wonder: the Iguacu Falls. An exhilarating set of some of the most powerful waterfalls in the world, the Iguacu Falls sit on the border of Brazil and Argentina. Whether you walk the trails to the falls to view them by foot, or take a boat on the river right up to the falls, the experience is not one that you will ever forget. Surrounding the falls is gorgeous original rainforest, filled with local wildlife.

While the town of Foz do Iguacu is fairly big and safe, it’s quite boring. The main event is definitely the waterfalls.

Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is the biggest city in Brazil, and is one of the biggest cities in the world (by number of people). Home to a vast diversity of people from all over the world, including huge Japanese and Italian communities, Sao Paulo is known for its cultural inclusivity and outstanding international cuisine. Though it hosts skyscrapers, sophisticated restaurants, enormous art galleries and museums, and a metropolitan lifestyle, Sao Paulo is also home to huge, beautiful parks (rivaling Central Park in New York City) and stretches of forest.
