Tourism in South America has been largely overlooked compared to other tourism developing regions such as Asia and Africa. Decades of political and economic uncertainty have directly influenced tourism development in the region and explain tourism’s current state. Despite its dimension, diversity and attractiveness, Brazil has only recently recognized the tourism industry as a promoter of economic and social development. Recent trends in the tourism industry in Brazil clearly illustrate the correlation between economic and political stability and development in tourism. This paper discusses the major issues that have influenced and shaped tourism in Brazil and addresses the major developments in the last decade and the future perspectives for the industry.
