With eco-tourism the hottest trend around, Brazil of­fers some su­perb nat­u­ral at­trac­tions. Ad­mire Iguaçu Falls and voy­age into the Ama­zon to see hoot­ing mon­keys in the trees and pink-gold river dol­phins in the wa­ter. Hav­ing just won the rights for the 2016 Olympics, there’s no doubt Rio de Janeiro will also be throw­ing out the wel­come mat. The city is stun­ning, es­pe­cially at the beach­side sub­urbs of Copaca­bana or Ipanema. Car­ni­val time in Fe­bru­ary is bold and brash be­yond be­lief. Just start sewing the se­quins on your bikini now if you want to join the party. em­
