Experience Rio de Janeiro: what to see, what to do

From Sugar Loaf Mountain to the giant Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking the city, from the famous Ipanema beach to Copacabana… what's not to love about Rio? When Carnival rolls around this city goes mad and it would be a shame to miss out on all the excitement!

Essentials in Rio de Janeiro

Beaches: Copacabana and Ipanema are Rio's two most famous beaches. Beach culture here is explosive with wide white sand beaches just a stone's throw from the city centre.

Cristo Redentor: A symbol of the city, the Christ the Redeemer statue on the top of is famous around the world. The statue is a classic example of the Art Deco movement in Rio and is a must, especially for the view from the top!

Carnival: This is the greatest reason to plan a holiday in Rio de Janeiro. The parties last an astonishing two weeks as the city's samba schools take to the streets of Centro in parades of dance.

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is home to hundreds of hotels. The most popular ones are in Zona Sul, within walking distance of Ipanema and Copacabana. If you're after something smaller and with more unique character, try something in Flamengo or Catete. Business travellers tend to stay in Rio de Janeiro hotels in the lower Centro which means the rooms are cheap there on weekends when demand is low.
