Once the capital of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro is the second largest city after Sao Paulo. In all of South America it’s difficult to better such a fun and vibrant city, with its iconic granite peaks and famous coastline. A Rio de Janeiro holiday is usually first on a visitor’s wish list, and a city tour here is breathtaking. The best panoramic view is from the top of Pao de Acucar (Sugarloaf Mountain), which is reached by a series of cable cars. Sugarloaf reaches a height of 1,300ft, and Corcovado can be seen in the far distance with its iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer.
Immediately below the Sugar Loaf in Guanabara Bay there are countless inlets packed with small boats. The Tijuca Rainforest at the foot of Corcovado can be explored by jeep and makes a fun trip and the botanical garden is lovely to explore on a quiet afternoon. A favela (township) tour is an interesting and thought-provoking excursion and we also recommend a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art.
