The people here known as 'carioca's' share a lust for life that can be heard in every samba song, seen on each sandy strip of shore and felt with every "saude", as glasses of beer clink to raise a toast.
The 'Marvellous City' is hemmed in by lush mountains that leer over the city offering staggering viewpoints of lagoons, beaches and slices of rainforest. If variety is the spice of life, then Rio's 'pimenta' roots offer a red hot mix of activities to dive into! Nightlife lovers can visit 'little africa' and witness a samba street party like no other. Active souls can hike up Pedra da Gávea, a granite rock jolting 842m above the sea, considered the largest single rock by the sea in the world.
Don't just flutter through the street parties and wind your hips with south american strangers, see the best that Rio has to offer with this incredible 6 day package. Visit the most famous Samba club in rio, take in one of the 7 wonders of the world at Christ the Redeemer, and zip up to Sugarloaf Mountain!
Then find your seat in the Sambodrome and drink in the festivities... and the alcohol!
For wide, open viewpoints that offer views of lakes, tropical forests, golden coastlines, and a sprawling city, there are few places in the world better to go to than Rio de Janeiro.
"The Greatest Show On Earth" is a colourful explosion of Latin music and bombastic costumes.
Home of Christ The Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain, Brazil is a must visited destination.
Brazil’s statue of Christ is, for some, the ultimate religious symbol. For others, an irresistible tourist attraction.
