Travel To Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro

Rio is known by all Brazilians as a cidade maravilhosa, or “marvelous city,” and we’re sure that if you’ve visited or have seen the sites and brochures, you’ll agree with us when we say this can be considered an understatement. Not necessarily known to locals for its beaches, but overall city, mountains and jungle landscapes all in one, partnered with its laid back culture. Rio is filled with history, culture, and a good time! If you’re worried about how to make the visit to Rio, have a group that wants to visit the marvelous city, or want to rent a luxury villa for some time there, send us a message, and we’ll organize your trip for you!
  • Christ the Redeemer Statue

    Known to locals as "Cristo Redentor," the statue, which sits atop the Corcovado mountain, in Tijuca national park, is right in the middle of the city, and Rio's top attractions. On a sunny day, you get the most spectacular views of the city! You can visit the statue by hiking, part of a group tour or by taxi, and then taking a train or bus all the way to the foot of the Cristo.
  • Copacabana Beach

    Wake up early and watch the sunrise through the beautiful Atlantic Ocean on the world's most famous beach, will make any visit to Rio worthwhile. Copacabana beach is a breathtaking 4.5km long, man made beach, with bright sand, and full of people practicing sports or just soaking in the sun. As well as in the daylight, Copacabana has a vivid night scene, with a crafts fair off the boardwalk, restaurants and bars buzzing, and right before night falls, plenty of people watching the sun set on Ipanema, on Arpoador rock, separating the two beaches.
  • Jardim Botânico

    Rio's botanical gardens are spectacular and often skipped over, since people tend to be so overwhelmed with wanting to see beaches and views around the city.
  • Sugarloaf Mountain

    Sugarloaf Mountain is a peak situated in Rio de Janeiro at the entry of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean. Experience this remarkable mountain when in Rio and its breath taking views from above makes this place a must see sightseeing. There's also an option to hike or rock climb up the mountain, making it more exciting!
  • Santa Teresa

    This trendy neighbourhood atop a mountain near Lapa, the city's biggest nightlife spot, is colorful and filled with personality, and cute bars, restaurants and galleries. You'll also find the Escadaria Selarón here, the bright staircase and work of art by Chilean born Jorge Selarón.
