Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Popularly dubbed the “Marvelous City”, Rio de Janeiro is currently the second largest metropolis in the country, and the major tourist destination in Latin America – and it is not hard to understand why. The contrast and at the same time the perfect blend of urban center with the exuberant nature of a rain forest, the sea and mountains turns Rio into an inspiring setting for those seeking natural beauty, leisure and fun. In June 2012 the city received the title of World Heritage Cultural Beauty. Among many other worldwide-renowned tourist attractions, Rio proudly displays the statue of Christ the Redeemer, a symbol of the city, elected one of New Seven Wonders of the World. From the top of Corcovado Mountain, Christ seems to welcome the city and its visitors with His arms wide open. Another must-see tourist spot is the Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf), a huge block of granite that resembles the molds used in the refining of cane sugar in the old days – hence the origin of its name. You can reach the top of the Sugarloaf by means of comfortable cable cars, in two steps of less than five minutes each, stopping at the top of Urca Hill. This cable car system is considered one of the safest in the world. The panoramic view that can be appreciated on a clear day is amazing – and spectacular after sunset, when you can see the glittering city lights everywhere. The warm weather during most of the year makes even more enjoyable a stay in Rio, whether for long walks around Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon or watching the sunset at Arpoador beach or getting a golden tan on the sands of the famous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. It is worth reminding that the Rio was the capital of Brazil for a long period, which is why the city boasts a heritage of the country displayed on the architecture of majestic buildings such as the Municipal Theatre, the Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library and the Church of the Candelária, as well as in the picturesque neighborhood of Santa Teresa. There is no shortage of options for visitors and cariocas to enjoy Rio’s bubbling and informal nightlife – as irresistible as the beaches. Theaters, restaurants, bars, kiosks and live show venues are abundant, always full of joyful, noisy people who gather with friends to eat, drink, dance and have lots of fun – especially in the currently trendiest bohemian point in the heart of Rio: the Lapa zone, under the Arcos da Lapa, a towering aqueduct built in the early eighteenth century. Of course, when you speak of Rio de Janeiro you are also talking about samba and its top expression: the Carnaval (Carnival), which enchants tourists from around the world and from other Brazilian states, featuring an unparalleled spectacle of dance, rhythm, fancy costumes and plenty of joy and emotion.
