5-Amazon rain forest
If you come to Brazil, you don’t have to skip the Amazon rainforest. As the surroundings have always been a mystery, most of its 6.5 million square kilometers have never been explored so far, so be sure to see it between May and June to avoid the worst of the rainy season. Belém or Manaus are great starting points for forest tours. If you want to include it in your itinerary, remember this: Traveling in the Amazon rainforest is not easy and you can never do it alone. Rely on serious and professional tour operators to maximize the experience, thanks to local official guide, assistance, insurance and travel packages. Don’t rely on the first one you find at all, but be cool.
