Come on. 4. You can drink booze pretty much anywhere. JAG IMAGES / Getty Images In Brazil, it's legal to drink in the street and in cars (as long as you're not the one driving). Cheers! 5. Cachaça Vi Neves (CC BY 2.0) / Via Flickr: rootsneves First off, it's pronounced "CA-SHA-SA," not "CA-CHA-CA" like you probably thought. But that's OK. Made from fermented and distilled sugarcane juice, cachaça is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in Brazil. 6. Caipirinha Christian Benseler, (CC BY-SA 2.0) / Via Flickr: chrisbenseler Remember cachaça? How could you forget! The caipirinha is kind of like a Brazilian margarita. It's made with cachaça, sugar, crushed limes, and served over ice. As you can probably tell from the photo, a caipirinha is super refreshing on a hot day. 7. Açaí Steve Outram / Getty Images It's pronounced "Ah-Sigh-EE," and it is SO FLIPPIN' GOOD IT'S NOT EVEN FAIR. AND IT'S SO GOOD FOR YOU IT'S UPSETTING. CAN'T HANDLE IT (almost). 8.

These are just facts, folks. 12. There's tons of beautiful wildlife to see. Prasit photo / Getty Images Look at these parrots. They're buddies, and they want to be buddies with you.
