If you're looking for a beach with a legendary reputation, you can't go wrong with Copacabana. It’s one of the most famous in the world. The 2.5-mile-long Copacabana has beautiful blue waters, a lively atmosphere, and an endless stretch of sand. A promenade in the Portuguese pavement style stretches the whole length of the beach. You'll love soaking up the sun and taking in the sights of this Brazilian icon.
Sugar Loaf Mountain sits at the mouth of Guanabara Bay and offers breathtaking views of the city. The climb to the top is a must-do for anyone visiting Río de Janeiro. With a cable car ride as well, you'll be afforded panoramic views of Río, its many beaches and mountains, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Tijuca Forest is one of the largest urban forests in the world, and a jeep tour is a perfect way to explore it. The national park was rewilded in the 19th century after being cleared for coffee and livestock farming. It may be possible to see coati, sloths, and squirrel monkeys, as well as stunning waterfalls, and lush vegetation.
Christ the Redeemer statue is easily the most famous landmark in Río de Janeiro and a must-visit destination. Set on top of the 2,300-foot-high Corcovado mountain in Tijuca Forest and completed in 1931, the statue is one of the icons of Brazilian culture. Tourists can take a rack railway to the top, or you can hike from Parque Lage, although this is neither easy nor safe.
Río de Janeiro is the beating heart of Brazil’s samba culture. For a truly authentic experience, you can head to a local samba club to see the dance in action. You'll love the energy of the music and the rhythm of the dancers. If you take a class beforehand and you can even get up and dance yourself!
The Lapa Arches, also called the Carioca Aqueduct, are a beautiful colonial architectural wonder right in the center of Río, and a walking tour is the best way to take them in. The Arches were built in the 18th century to bring water into the growing city. The Lapa neighborhood is full of bars, restaurants, and live music. It’s not uncommon to see samba underneath the arches.
The Museum of Tomorrow is an innovative science museum that explores the future of our planet. Designed by Santiago Calatrava, best known for his stunning buildings in Valencia, Spain, many of the exhibits are fully interactive. The displays are thought-provoking, and you'll love learning about the future of the world and what we can do to make it better.
Río’s Carnival Parade is one of the most famous events and the 300-year-old festival is thought to be the largest in the world. It's a must-see for anyone visiting the city at the right time. Street dancers in colorful costumes and floats move through the streets to the sound of Brazilian rhythms. You'll love the energy and excitement of this iconic parade but make sure you’re in the city at the start of Lent — which could be any time between February and April.
Guanabara Bay is a beautiful body of water surrounded by Río and the city of Niterói. The bay is dotted with 130 islands and spanned by an eight-mile bridge. A boat tour is the best way to take in the sights of the bay. You'll be able to see the famous landmarks of Río de Janeiro from the peaceful atmosphere on the water.
Whether it’s rice and beans, feijoada, or farofa, Brazilian food is a blend of multicultural flavors. And the food in Río is some of the best. It’s influenced by Portuguese, African, and indigenous cultures. Trying Brazilian dishes will be one of the highlights of your trip to Río de Janeiro.
