Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro may not be the capital or the largest city in Brazil, but it is one of the most exciting places in the world. With a chaotic bustle that is not for the faint-hearted, it is nevertheless becoming increasingly accessible thanks to infrastructural improvements made for the World Cup and the Olympic Games. The iconic sights of Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Statue of Christ the Redeemer keep a watchful eye over this spirited city, where you’ll be spoilt for choice with activities to pursue. The world famous beaches at Ipanema and Copacabana provide a chance to experience the city’s party atmosphere amongst a diverse –and beautiful – international crowd. Meanwhile, the narrow streets of the Santa Teresa district is a shopping and dining hotspot with an artistic flair, and offers fabulous views of the city. If you want to see the city in full flow, visit during February or March and take in the exciting Rio Carnival, where thousands of people take to the streets in decorative costumes and samba the night away.
