Rio de Janeiro

4.5

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro. It's not just during the iconic Carnaval festival that this city comes to life--you can find wild parties and energetic dancing all year round. Equally known for the lush green hills and world-famous beaches that surround it, the warm city of around 12 million people sprawls across a rugged, weaving coastline. A tour of Rio de Janeiro reveals all the diversity of this "Marvelous City," where colorful old neighborhoods like Santa Teresa juxtapose with Rio's notorious "favelas," known as slums and havens for drug cartels. Whatever your fancy, you'll no doubt find plenty to keep you entertained on your Rio de Janeiro vacation. Rio de Janeiro is in State of Rio de Janeiro (RJ). Use our Brazil online vacation planner to arrange your visit to Rio de Janeiro and any other destinations in Brazil that take your fancy.
