Rio De Janeiro Travel Guide

Rhapsody in Rio, that rollicking year-round Carnaval experience, that makes you want to return to Rio again and again. Rio has two sides – the revelling, rhythmic, rocking, remarkable Rio coexists with the ribald, reckless, risqué, reveal-all Rio. If you aren’t here for the Carnaval, then surely you are here for the jazz razzmatazz, the boisterous beaches and the scintillating nightlife... or for the magnificent sights, and the sound of your guide’s historical harangue.

Yes, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it once more… you’ll return to Rio again and again, after all, you can simply blame it all on rebellious, raucous Rio!

The towering statue of Christ the Redeemer which watches over the city is deemed as one of the seven wonders of the modern world and was created by French sculptor Paul Landowski.

The world’s largest party - Rio Carnival began in 1641 when the Portuguese settlers celebrated Ash Wednesday with masked balls & sophisticated parties.

Cash-strapped travellers may join in the Rio Carnival fun by participating in street parties during the carnival season.
