Imbassai beach is also very good in Brazil...

Lencois dunes are rather unusual. For me it's a second best attraction after Iguasu falls in Brazil.

I like Fortaleza town. It has good beaches. There is also biggest aqua park in Brazil - called Parque Aquatico (aka Fortaleza Beach Park).

Rio and Iguasa falls. What else to see in Brazil?
