Brazil is famous worldwide amongst the richest destinations in terms of options in the tourism sector. Brazil extends over 8.5 million square kilometers on land offering a wide range of Natural Parks, Biosphere reserves and environmental protection areas - many of which have been granted by UNESCO the status of Natural Heritages of Humanity.
The very mention of the name Amazon conjures images of adventure and mistery. Designating the world's largest rainforest and the world's largest river, Amazon defines the word "exotic".
The term "Rain Forest" describes flora that thrives in areas with registered rain fall reaching 1500 mm per year. The Amazon River measures approximately 7,000 km, considered the largest river in the world. Its water volume is 11 times larger that the Mississippi River. The Amazon region consists of flora that occupy 38, 5% of the Brazilian territory, representing a mere 7% of the counties population.
Most of the amazonian's inhabitants live in around a few cities and surounding areas,including Manaus, wich is a thousand of miles from the Atlantic Ocean,and Belem, which is situated on the Equator with a port that is located only a few miles from the sea.
