Ecotourism in Brazil

Ecotourism in Brazil
Those who subscribe to the philosophy of "take only pictures, leave only footprints" will find plenty to love in Brazil. Ecotourism opportunities abound in this land of lush rain forests, rushing rivers, majestic mountains and pristine beaches.

Rain Forests

The famous Amazon rain forest has often been referred to as the "Lungs of Our Planet." Around 20 percent of our oxygen is produced by this wonder.


The Amazon, the Rio de la Plata, the Tocantins and Sao Francisco are all located in Brazil.


Brazil is home to many stunning waterfalls. Igauzu Falls spans both Brazil and Argentina, with panoramic views of both countries.


Fifteen separate mountain ranges grace the land of Brazil. Crystal Mountain, home of Crystal Falls, is a popular point of interest for ecotourists.


The coastline of Brazil is dotted with pristine strips of white-sand beach. One of the country's best beaches, Alter do Chão, Pará, is in the Amazon rain forest on a river.

Eco Lodges

Eco lodges offer environmentally friendly lodging, "eco education" and a different alternative to staying in a hotel.
