Since launching, we’ve seen Instagram spread from our headquarters in the Bay Area to every corner of the globe. In this series we’ll highlight top users from countries and cities with thriving Instagram communities.

Brazil is one of the most Instagram-luvin places on the planet. Which makes sense given its size. Brazil, or Brasil if you’re in the know, is the fifth largest country on the planet by both geographical area and population. It shares borders with ten countries in South America. If you’re counting, that’s all of them except Ecuador and Chile.

For all the love the brasileiros give Instagram, we have a special place in our heart for them. Instagram co-founder @mikeyk is a native of São Paulo after all. That’s why we’ve hand picked some of our absolute favorite Brazilian Instagrammers to share in this spotlight:
