Fun and frolic RIO DE JANEIRO
From curvaceous shoreline to her seventies high-rises, from her classy Portuguese monuments to her hill-hugging favelas, the ‘Cidade Marvilhosa’ – Marvelous City – is instantly mesmerizing. The Cariocas – the inhabitants of Rio – truly have love potion running through their veins. Their regional jazz bars, deafening block parties, ceaseless samba and football will attest to that. Rio is a biking city, with over 74km of bicycle pathways, most of them stretching alongside the beaches. Bits of pristine rainforest and sweaty thunderstorms unexpectedly break through Rio’s futuristic façade. This 'river' is in glorious flux. Moving beyond its violent reputation, Rio today has far more to offer than just the Copacabana, Christ on the Mountain and the Sugarloaf Mountain. Rio is fun and frolic to the fullest!
People who travel to Rio make sure that they also visit Sao Paulo, Salvador, Fortaleza and Natal.
