Brazil is very different in language, customs, culture, and environment from the rest of South America. On this exploration of Brazil's natural wonders, start in Iguazu Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, a series of awe-inspiring waterfalls in the middle of a lush rainforest that formed 150 million years ago, then fly to Manaus and enter the Amazon basin, where you will travel by boat from a thriving jungle cosmopolitan city of more than 1.4 million people to a world away at Anavilhanas Jungle Lodge on the Rio Negro river. Here, listen for host of howler monkeys, a serenade of toucans, and a chorus of birds and frogs, all while keeping an eye out for spider and squirrel monkeys cavorting around the ecolodge's grounds and out on your excursions. The wildlife alone would make this an unforgettable experience, but families are also charmed by the unique siting, architecture, and activities of this small award-winning lodge.
