The world's largest country in the tropics
Camping is uncommon in Brazil, though some tour operators offer organised group trips in the Amazon and in the Pantanal regions. Since many parts of Brazil are wild, or semi-explored, it is wise to drive on main roads, to camp with organised groups under supervision and with official permits, or otherwise to stay in recognised hotels.
The Camping Clube do Brasil has around 48 sites in 14 states. Those with an ‘international camper's card' pay only half the rate of a non-member. For those on a low budget, service stations can be used as campsites. These are equipped with shower facilities and can supply food. Brazil undoubtedly has an amazing selection of awesome areas boasting some unrivalled natural beauty, but camping options are nevertheless somewhat limited.
