Like with most stereotypes, the truth lies somewhere in the middle and there are good parts and bad parts of Brazil. However, in general, Brazil is a great place to vacation. Like so much of South America, Brazilian culture is widely diverse and the country itself contains many places to visit which are all a little different.
