It's easy to see why too! Hailed as the largest single waterfall system in the world, they are the stuff of records, wonders and superlatives. They are UNESCO-attested and have rarely failed to wow all who pass their way. Here are 10 reasons why you need to visit before you die…

One is in the east, the other is in the west. One speaks Portuguese, the other has Spanish and the ancient Quechuan tongue of the Incas. One hosts carnivals to rival any cultural festival on the planet, while the other touts the hidden historic remains of South America’s greatest ever empire. They both have beaches, and mountains, going from the sculpted Sugarloaf of Rio de Janeiro to the soaring snow-topped massifs of the mighty Andes, but differences abound. Yep, there’s no question that Peru and Brazil offer a glimpse at two sides of the South America coin. But which one should you travel to?

It was a bumpy boat ride to get to Ilha Grande, but after a few glasses of wine our nerves were calmed. This island was the epitome of paradise.
I fell in love with this place, the moment I looked out the plane window as it started descending. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. The land was full of lush, green mountains and Rio De Janeiro was situated in them. All my worries subsided.
The brave ones of the group set off on an adventure of a life-time today. Hang gliding! Only a few us told ourselves to ignore the fear, and just do it! I mean, you can’t go to Brazil without ticking this off your bucket list!
Our adventure continued in Paraty, a small, fairly chill city in Brazil with an ocean view and lots to do! Time went by really fast during our time spent here. We had a bit of time to hang out on the beach, but our days were pretty packed for the most part.
After imagining a cheap third world old broken down hostel, it was certainly a breathe of fresh air arriving at a colourful and welcoming hostel, Bonita. The afternoon kicked off with greetings from our friendly tour guides Mike and Leo, which soon lead to the group introductions and icebreakers – we certainly could pick a few party animals in the group.
Imagine a place in the middle of the ocean, where cars don’t exist, and the only way to commute is by foot or by boat; where palm trees grow sideways out of the ocean banks; where the water is so blue and unbelievably clear; where the beaches are all incredibly amazing; where everywhere you look the jungle and all its beautiful sounds surround you; this my friends is paradise and they call it Ilha Grande. Our stay in Ilha Grande was such a special experience.
I don’t know how else to better describe our time spent in Rio de Janeiro…After a lonnnnng day of travelling everyone finally arrived in Rio and the group met up.
