Get a Brazil Visa to See the Oldest Rock Art in South America

December 26th, 2010
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Brazil's most significant archaeological treasures. Serra da Capivara National Park is home to numerous examples of amazing rock art that dates back to the Ice Age. In fact, one rock shelter has some paintings that date back to 26,000-22,000 BC, making it the oldest known rock art in South America. At over 25,000 years of age, some of the rock art in Serra de Capivara makes the famous cave paintings in Lascaux, France (painted "only" 17,300 years ago) look like modern art. Serra da Capivara's main draw may be the rock art, but it's also notable for its unique plant and animal life. Some species are not found anywhere else outside of the park boundaries. UNESCO granted World Heritage status to the park in 1991, calling it an "


Visit Brasilia with a Brazilian Visa

November 27th, 2010
Brasilia, the capital of Brazil and today's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an interesting city that's definitely worth a visit, especially if you have an interest in architecture. Brazil has had 3 different capitals since the country was settled by Europeans: Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and finally Brasilia. Brasilia was constructed in the center of the country with the express purpose of becoming a new, modern capital for the country and encouraging settlement of Brazil's interior. Inspired by the urban planning philosophy of French architect Le Corbusier, Brasilia was designed by its architects, Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, to be an idyllic metropolis where traffic would flow so smoothly that traffic lights would be unnecessary. Of course, as Robert Burns once famously wro


Brazilian Visa Requirements to Visit the Discovery Coast Atlantic Forest Reserves

November 14th, 2010
Brazil is an amazing country. There are so many unique places to visit, it's almost impossible to narrow it down to a specific destination. This week, we're taking another look at Brazil as part of our UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Week series. This week's featured World Heritage Site is the Discovery Coast Atlantic Forest Reserves. The Atlantic Forest was once an enormous forest that blanketed the entire Atlantic coast of Brazil, extending inland even into Paraguay. However, it has been extensively logged and burned to provide land for agricultural use such as sugar cane farming. Now, the once-great forest has shrunk to just a few pockets, providing shelter to primate species like the marmoset , the lion tamarin and the woolly spider monkey. Other residents include the maned sloth


Brazil Visa Requirements to Visit the Ilhas Cagarras

October 10th, 2010
If you're visiting Rio de Janeiro, one of the most accessible places to take a breather from the hustle and bustle of the city is to take a day trip to the Ilhas Cagarras, or the Cagarras Islands. The islands are located just about 3 miles offshore, but they are quite rocky and completely devoid of human habitation. Despite the lack of human settlement, the islands are full of life: many different species of birds raise their young on the rocks, and the diversity of the underwater ecosystem around the islands makes for great diving. According to Frommer's, there's even a recent shipwreck to explore. The waters around the Ilhas Cagarras are also home to a surprising number of dolphins, so if you've always wanted a chance to see these intelligent, fascinating creatures up close in th


5 Reasons to Get a Brazilian Visa

September 9th, 2010
The largest country in South America, Brazil is also a land of contrasts: bustling cities are surrounded by impenetrable rainforests, dry savannas border the largest wetland on earth, and mountains tower over sandy beaches. There are a million reasons to go through the hassle of getting a Brazilian visa. Here are 5 of them: Carnaval- Brazil is perhaps most famous for its Carnaval, where, in preparation for Lent, Brazilians try to squeeze 40 days of partying into a day (or two or three, depending on the region.) Carnaval is marked by spectacular parades, lots of samba dancing, and lots of beer and other alcohol. Rio de Janeiro- Rio is the most popular city for tourists in South America, and for good reason: The city is beautiful and lively, surrounded by mountains and white-sand beach
