Brazil Travel Information


Brazil Flag Brazil (the Federative Republic of Brazil) is a country in South America (although also including numerous island archipeligos). It is both the largest (in terms of area), and the only Portuguese-speaking country in that continent. Brazil has land borders with Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela, and also has a long coastline on the Atlantic Ocean.

The population of Brazil, as of 2008, was estimated to be around 190 million. The largest city, São Paulo had a population of nearly 11 million, and there are at least 13 other cities with populations of over 1 million. The capital of the country since 1960 is Brasilia which is a purpose built and designed city (planning and development began in 1956).

The Brazil economy has been rapidly growing over the last few years, and Brazil is now in the top 10 countries based on both GDP and purchasing power parity. In future years, Brazil is expected to become even more important economically.
