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


Brazil Visa Requirements to Visit the Pantanal

August 21st, 2010
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is part of the largest wetland in the world. The Pantanal Conservation Complex consists of 4 protected areas in Brazil's Pantanal region. The Pantanal is an amazing ecosystem that supports a tremendously diverse population of plants and animals. According to Wikipedia, it is home to 3500 known plant species, 1000 different types of birds, 300 different types of mammals, 480 reptile species, 400 fish species and over 9,000 different types of invertebrates. Some of the most photogenic inhabitants of the Pantanal include giant river otters, howler monkeys, endangered hyacinth macaws and other parrots, jaguar, giant anteaters, the alligator-like caiman and the odd-looking tapir, which resembles a pig but is actually more closely related to th


Get a Brazilian Visa to Visit Fernando de Noronha and Atol das Rocas Reserves

July 11th, 2010
Brazil is justly famous for its ecotourism opportunities, and the country boasts more than just rainforests to explore. For example, Fernando de Noronha and Atol das Rocas Reserves, this week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an archipelago of 21 islands and islets. The islands themselves are beautiful but hardly pristine, as all of the original forests were cut down in the 19th century to improve security for the prison that was once located there. The real attraction is the marine life that surrounds the island, especially the group of spinner dolphins in Golfinhos Bay.  The coastline surrounding the islands is great for diving, and there's even the remnants of an old Portuguese warship to explore. To visit , Fernando de Noronha and Atol das Rocas Reserves, you do need a Braz


Brazilian Visa Requirements To Visit Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, Where the Mirages Are Real

June 20th, 2010
When is a mirage not really a mirage? When the water is real, as it is in Brazil's Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. This park is mostly desert,an otherworldly landscape with vast, ivory-colored sand dunes as far as the eye can see. However, in Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, crystal-clear lakes and lagoons are scattered in between the dunes. The New York Times' Frugal Traveler recently visited the park, and was quite impressed: The barely off-white silky sands and endless cool oases of the Lençóis are such a visual stunner that, with apologies to Rio de Janeiro, the Canadian Rockies and my ex-girlfriends, they may be the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. You can get to Lençóis Maranhenses National Park by plane or by bus from São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Of cour
