The splendid facade of the city hides the picturesque nature of white-sand beaches, majestic mountains and mysterious tropical forests can surprise travelers with many unexpected discoveries.
If you want to understand what makes Rio so alive, you should try dancing samba on the famous Sambodrome cheered up by thousands of spectators, join the gilded youth at the most fashionable beach Leblon, drive the oldest tram in South America and make a bet at dog races. Then you need to go to the dangerous favelas, meet the local fauna in the Tijuca Forest and finally ascent to the Brazil’s symbol — the Statue of Christ the Redeemer.
Rio, so colorful, so full of contrasts and so hospitable, will lavish care upon its guests, astonish even the most experienced adventurers, seduce with non-stop salsa music and enchant with idyllic landscapes.
