Travel and Tourism - Brazil - May 2009

Brazil is South America’s most popular destination, attracting between 4 and 5 million foreign visitors annually, but given the country’s size (it is the fifth-largest nation in the world) and its diverse attractions – from the beaches of Rio de Janeiro to the Amazonian rainforest – those are modest numbers. In 2007, Brazil registered 5,025,834 foreign visitors – only 8,583 more than in 2006. International tourism revenues were US$4.9 billion, up from US$4.3 billion the year before.
