Destination Spotlight: Rio de Janerio

Rio de Janeiro is the second largest city in Brazil, on the South Atlantic coast. Rio is famous for its breathtaking landscape, its laid back beach culture and its annual carnival. Stunning natural sceneries, a free-spirited and welcoming people that transform anything into a party, and world-famous iconic monuments. These are the elements that make Rio de Janeiro a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable destination.

The world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Major landmarks including the Christ the Redeemer Statue atop Corcovado mountain, the winding streets of beautiful Santa Teresa, the Lapa Arches, countless historic theatres, acclaimed museums and art galleries and of course, the mighty Maracana Stadium, home of matches of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Games. The excitement of the Carioca spirit is infectious and there is no better time to experience this than during the miraculous and memorable festival of Rio Carnival.

Although Carnival is celebrated in towns and villages throughout Brazil and other Catholic countries, Rio de Janeiro has long been regarded as the Carnival capital of the world. The Rio Carnaval is not only the biggest Carnival, it is also a benchmark against which every other carnival is compared and one of the most interesting artistic events on the globe.
