About Rio de Janeiro

Few will argue that Rio de Janeiro is among the world's most beautiful cities. Known as the "Cidade Maravilhosa", Rio lies between Guanabara Bay, the beautiful beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon, and a tropical forest Mountain range. The outstretched arms of Rio's Christ Redeemer Statue, set atop Corcovado Mountain's 2,307 ft. peak can be seen from virtually any place in the city. Pao de Acucar, (Sugar Loaf) mountain and its cable car mark the location where the city was founded in 1565. These two famous landmarks make Rio among the world's most recognizable cities.

During Carnaval , Rio comes to a virtual standstill as parties, dancing and samba music fills the streets. At the Sambodromo a specially designed stadium for the samba school parades, you can watch elaborately and scantily dressed participants sway and jump to the beat of samba music. Although Rio de Janeiro is famous for its festive atmosphere, it is the headquarters to some of Brazil's largest national and multi-national companies. It is a cosmopolitan city with a wide variety of sightseeing, nightlife and restaurants. Rio's relaxed atmosphere, beautiful beaches and friendly "cariocas" make this city an unforgettable experience that you must not miss.
