Amazon — The world’s largest rainforest holds a special place in the global imagination. Though several countries claim slivers of the Amazon basin, Brazil controls the lion’s share. Most visitors seek encounters with the region’s dazzling (and increasingly endangered) flora and fauna, but about 20 million people also inhabit the area, and cultural tourism offers a rich complement to ecotourism.

Why Go

For the dense jungle, wildlife-spotting riverboat tours, and the most biodiverse region on the planet.
