Rio de Janeiro

Home to some of the world's friendliest people and most beautiful beaches

General Overview

Rio de Janeiro has earned the title “The Marvelous City” (A Cidade Maravilhosa) for its many appealing aspects, including its beaches, mountains, samba, and fashion. Rio de Janeiro is a popular tourist destination due to its picture-perfect setting between lush mountains and clear water.

Aside from being a major economic and cultural hub of Brazil, Rio is known for its laid-back, cheerful Carioca attitude. Featuring the country’s most recognizable landmarks, many people will recognize it from postcards. The small peninsula at the mouth of Guanabara Bay is still crowned by Pão de Açcar (Sugar Loaf Mountain), which looks like a concentrated sugar loaf. The Christ the Redeemer statue, Rio’s most recognizable landmark, can still be seen atop Corcovado Mountain, providing a bird’s-eye view of the entire city. And the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, which have been immortalized in song and film, continue to steal the show with their postcard-perfect atmosphere and hordes of A-listers.

The opportunities available in Rio de Janeiro are practically limitless. Tourists can while away the hours in the company of some of South America’s most stylish citizens on some of the world’s pristine beaches. They can relax and enjoy the best that the country has to offer in terms of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Alternatively, visitors can go sight-seeing by foot or bicycle, visiting the hills of Leblon and the arts scene of Santa Teresa before climbing Sugar Loaf Mountain or Corcovado for breathtaking views of the setting sun.

Best time to visit Rio

The best time to visit Rio is between December and March, when the weather is warm and sunny enough to hit the beaches. If you’re planning a luxury vacation to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro is a great place to begin or end your trip.
