The capital of Brazil is Brasilia; a planned city located in the interior of the country that was erected in the 1950's and is world-renowned for its modern architecture and structure. The majority of tourists to Brazil, however, head to the former capital Rio de Janeiro, for its samba, Carnival celebrations, Ipanema, Copacabana, Sugar Loaf and the huge statue of Christ the Redeemer. Sao Paulo is the largest city in South America and third largest city in the world. Explore Sao Paulo in your car hire, which is famous for its multicultural mix and vibrant culture, as well as the fantastic restaurants, including rodizios and churrascarias.

No trip to Brazil would be complete without experiencing The Amazon, the largest rainforest on earth which covers just over half of Brazil. Drive your hire car over to Iguazu Falls, close to the border with Argentina, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and is now a designated World Heritage Site. Take a tour of the northeastern region of Brazil and explore some of the popular, and some undiscovered, golden beaches that grace the coastline.
