Brazilian Culture

As the 5th largest country and home to 200 million people, Brazil is regarded as one of the most diverse places in the world. Home to the iconic Christ The Redeemer in Rio De Janeiro, Iguacu Falls and the Amazonian Rain Forest, Brazil is known for its stunning beauty, importance to the world’s ecosystem and of course the vibrancy and energy of its people.

With Brazilian Portuguese being the national language, many of the cities in Brazil have a heavy Portuguese colonial influence stemming from their history. With 80% of the national population living within 50 miles of the coastline, many Brazilians have easy access to the 5000+ miles of Atlantic beach coast. With high population density centred around the south eastern states (including Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo) and 85% of Brazilians travelling domestically, an increasing proportion are visiting the idyllic north east region.

Brazilians thrive on music and sport and are famous for their intense support of their national football team (winner of more FIFA world cups than any other team). Highly athletic as a nation from football to beach volleyball, Brazilians enjoy physical recreation in ever increasing numbers including horse riding, tennis, kite surfing, motor sport and cycling. This is highlighted with the forthcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games.

The multi-ethnicity and diversity across Brazil is renowned and celebrated yearly with the world famous ‘Carnival’ performed throughout the country each February. Brazil is one of the worlds most colourful and vibrant countries and offers its visitors exceptional variety.
