1. The Amazon

There are many reasons to plan a great trip to the Amazon. Also referred to as the "lungs of the planet," this region produces an incredible 20 percent of all of the oxygen on Earth. Occupying 1.2 billion acres, it boasts the world's largest river system and incredible rain forests.
If you can't get enough of the great outdoors, the Amazon is definitely for you. Thanks to a 66-foot high suspension bridge, you can actually meander through the treetops of Bahia's Atlantic Forest. You can go on bird-watching excursions, paddle down the river and even fish for deadly piranha.

Ecotourism in this area is based across several South American countries. However, 60 percent of the densest areas of the Amazon are found in Brazil, where much of the tourism takes place.
