Rio de Janeiro, the Cidade Maravilosa

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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 has been the star city of Brazil for quite some time. Even the 2016 Olympic Games were hosted in Rio.
