ADVENTURE TRAVEL HOLIDAYS IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

Luxury Holidays in Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro is the second largest city in Brazil, on the South Atlantic coast. Rio is famous for its breathtaking landscape, its laidback beach culture and its annual carnival. The harbour of Rio de Janeiro is comprised of a unique entry from the ocean that makes it appear to be the mouth of a river. Additionally, the harbor is surrounded by spectacular geographic features including Sugar Loaf mountain at 395 meters, Corcovado Peak at 704 meters, and the hills of Tijuca at 1,021 meters. These features work together to collectively make the harbor one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
 
Princesinha do Mar (Princess of the Sea) as it is called is one of the reasons Rio is so famous. The wide sand strip makes it a very popular luxury beach holidays for sports and sunbathing. At the far end by the hill is the Leme Beach, an extension of Copacabana but very family-oriented. More than a beach, Copacabana is a melting pot where many different people gather in various events all year round. Bands often use Copacabana as a stage for concerts. International volleyball and soccer championships are held in arenas built for the occasions. Above all, there is absolutely nothing like New Year’s Eve at the Copacabana Beach. Tons of fireworks light the skies for half an hour while 2 million people dressed in white go crazy. Something to experience at least once in a lifetime!
