Tropical rainforests, defined as heavily vegetated, diverse regions in the tropical zone that recieve 50 to 260 inches of rain a year (!), are found in three main regions of the world. The biggest single area is in the Amazon region of South America (around Brasil). Tropical rainforest is also the primary ecosystem in the islands of southeast Asia, including northern and coastal India, and the very northern tip of Australia. The third tropical rainforest region is cantral Africa, but this area has gotten appreciably smaller as the Sahara has increased in size.
There are also significant areas of the earth covered in non-tropical rainforests: heavily vegetated areas with a lot of rainfall that are not especially warm. A good example is the northwestern United States.
