Head up to Corcovado peak in the hills overlooking the coast to see the iconic and Statue of Christ the Redeemer. This is also great for climbing and hiking opportunities in the dense rainforest of Tijuca, and nearby is a beautiful bohemian district of old Portuguese colonial architecture.
Besides its famous landmarks, soak up city life cycling along the beach promenade, where the cariocas play beach volleyball, jog, play soccer and just hang out in their spare time. Learn to samba at one of its famous schools or see them practising for Carnival months in advance, discover local arts and crafts at the Hippy Market or take in a game of football at the Maracana stadium.
‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
