Located in the center of the Country, the Cerrado has the springs of the three biggest river basins in South America. Along the states that the second largest Brazilian biome covers, there are about 200 species of mammals, 800 of birds, and 1,200 of fish. The typical vegetation has twisted trunks and thick shells, ideal for the recurring droughts.

The region has scenarios that transit between waterfalls, caves, chapadas, and rivers of crystal-clear water. These landscapes promote ecotourism and adventure tourism, as in Jalapão and the Chapada dos Veadeiros and Emas National Park, considered a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

In some cities, you find valuable historical monuments, cultural heritage sites, and secular traditions. The region is also the federal capital Brasilia, an open-air architectural museum.

The cuisine reflects the region’s economy, but also offers unique experiences with fruits from the Cerrado, such as pequi and guariroba.
