Cascata do Caracol

From the series “Greatest Waterfalls on Earth”
Caracol is a very interesting and attractive waterfall which is located amidst the scenic rainforests of Brazil. One of the main advantages of this waterfall is its easy accessibility. Even those travellers who do not have special physical training may explore the tropical forests. The height of the waterfall is 131 meters and it is a part of the river flow of the same name.

The huge popularity of these places among tourists has led to the improvement of infrastructure in the area.

Traditions and festivals in Brazil

Sao Paulo
Another interesting festival that takes place in the largest city in Brazil is the famous three-day event called Lollapalooza. In Sao Paulo, the festival takes place in springtime (in late March or in early April), and it always brings together thousands of fans of rock and pop music. You can listen to various genres of rock and metal here, as well as electronic music. The festival is attended by famous headliners, both foreigners and natives of Brazil (among them Sepultura, Metallica, Skrillex, … Read more
Rio de Janeiro
There is no such a person in the world who has never heard about the Brazilian Carnival. The mad energy of the musical rhythms, the incendiary movements of the dancers, the bright feathers, the shine of the rhinestones, the half-naked exotic beauties - the whirlwind of emotions that grabs any action that falls on it. This event is comparable only with the eruption of a volcano or a thousand-mile salute. Many tourists go to Rio-de-Janeiro when all the streets are transformed beyond recognition … Read more
Local people have their own habits and mentality. If you do not know the specifics of the worldview of Brazilians, then many things may seem very unusual in Salvador. For example, “jeitinho brasileiro” can be considered the main feature of all citizens. These words can be translated as "the Brazilian style of behavior." However, the word "style" is used in a little pejorative sense in this phrase. This concept covers all areas of Brazilian life. It permeates all layers of society - from … Read more
If you visit the city, remember that the Brazilians have their own unique mentality. Otherwise, the misdeeds of local residents may seem illogical and inconsistent in some situations. The commitment of jeitinho brasileiro unites all citizens. This is the Brazilian manner of behaving. And "manner" is used in a pejorative sense in this context. This is an unwritten set of attitudes related to life in general. It will be quite difficult for a non-Brazilian to understand these rules. It is quite … Read more
If you are going to visit Natal, you should not forget that jeitinho brasileiro is typical for local residents. It is translated as "the Brazilian manner of behavior." And the citizens say "manner" somewhat pejoratively in this case. It is difficult to understand jeitinho brasileiro for tourists, even if they communicate with Brazilians for a long time. This behavior is understood only by real Brazilians. But the behavior of the citizens surprises the tourists. For example, everyone lives under … Read more
One of main secrets of the popularity of Fortaleza is welcoming and cheerful atmosphere. Locals treat travelers with great interest and welcoming attitude. Speaking about the nature of locals, it’s worth to mention spiritual warmth, lightness and poetry; for tourists citizens may seem extremely sentimental. In any company, whether it is some local festival or dinner at one of the local restaurants, the foreigner will be treated as a good friend. Locals are always happy to talk to visitors … Read more
The most famous festival in the capital of Brazil, perhaps, is Semana do Cinema Brasileiro held in October (sometimes falls on November). It is one of the oldest film shows in the country that brings together popular cinema figures and those who have not yet made a name for themselves in the global film industry but are still no less talented. During this time, all media attention is focused on this ceremony, and at the end of the festival, the winner receives Troféu Candango and, of course, … Read more
Ilha Grande
Locals are known for their tranquil and peaceful temper. People here always try to resolve an argument by a simple conversation and to reduce tension by joking. Fighting here is a very rare phenomenon. Still, Ilha Grande is not the best place for alone night walks. The level of criminality is much lower than in the country in general and most locals try not to deal with tourists. Nevertheless, you should follow some basic rules: keep an eye on your personal stuff, do not show that you have a big … Read more
