Rio de Janeiro, the Cidade Maravilosa

For more Brazil travel inspiration, explore all the most luxurious beach resorts in Brazil or consider combining your Rio de Janeiro city tour with a trip to the Amazon Rainforest. Any of the Rio de Janeiro tours below can be combined with other popular destinations to make one fantastic Brazil travel package.

Here are some ideas and inspiration for “must-do” things to do in Rio de Janeiro:

  1. Take a morning walk along on the beach. Join frolicking dogs and morning joggers for a pre-breakfast stroll along the uncrowded beach any time of the year.
  2. Enjoy a Guaraná above the waves. Try Brazil’s favorite sparkling beverage, made from the red Amazonian Guaraná berries, as you sit above the waves below the morro de Leme, the big rock at the eastern end of Copacabana in the neighborhood of Leme.
  3. Climb to the top of the “rock of Leme” for a panoramic view of Copacabana & Praia Vermelha (“red beach”) as well as views of Sugarloaf Mountain just hundreds of meters away.
  4. Visit the military museum. At the other end of Copacabana, the Forte de Copacabana, the relaxed military outpost and lifeguard training center hosts an interesting military museum as well as a more sophisticated café. Here, enjoy views of the entire beach with Sugarloaf in the background.
  5. Enjoy a night of stars. Your tour of Rio de Janeiro is not complete without a view of Copacabana by night. Finish your day at one of the kiosks on the beachside of Avenida Atlântica.

Rio de Janeiro Travel FAQ’s

Thinking about a Rio de Janeiro trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.

Is Rio de Janeiro safe?

With normal precautions it is safe to visit all the main attractions in Rio and have a very enjoyable trip – this includes all the highlights such as the statue of Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf and the famous beaches. At night, it is best to take pre-booked taxis and to stay off the beaches. Rio de Janeiro gets some bad press but it is important to distinguish between wealthy tourist areas such as Copacabana and Ipanema and the poor favelas or shantytowns that do indeed have high crime levels. We do not recommend visiting the favelas and in any case, it is questionable why one would want to go and gawp at people living in poor conditions.

Is Rio de Janeiro worth visiting?

Yes! Rio de Janeiro is an absolute must-see destination on any tour of Brazil and South America as a whole. The city has one of the most beautiful settings in the world with fantastic beaches backed by stunning mountain peaks. This, combined with the tropical climate, relaxed culture and friendly people makes Rio an excellent place to visit.

What is the best time to visit Rio de Janeiro?

If you want a party, visit Rio de Janeiro at New Year or carnival which takes place in February or March each year. Otherwise, any month is a good month to visit Rio really. The warmest months are from December to March, and these are also the wetter months. June to August are drier and cooler – though never even close to being cold. The months between these two periods are some of our favorite times to visit Rio as you’ll likely have mostly dry weather and moderate temperatures.
