Rio De Janeiro and Beaches, Brazil Travel Itineraries and Places to Stay

Rio is famed for the Statue of Christ the Redeemer, its fabulous stretches of beaches, and Sugar Loaf Mountain.

It is known as 'Cidade Maravilhosa' - the "Marvelous City" by the Brazilians. The city's setting is iconic and truly stunning, flanked to the east by the Bay of Guanabara and to the south by the Atlantic Ocean. Rio extends between the enormous granite peaks and wide sandy beaches. The 'Cariocas,' or the residents of Rio, are a lively people and the city is constantly buzzing with life.

Buzios is famous for its beaches. It is only 180 km away from Rio de Janeiro. This coastal region stretches along the northern part of the state and is marked by the conviviality of contrasts of luxury and simplicity, colonial and modern. The strategic location, natural beauty, and abundance of fresh water turned Buzios into a tourist destination. Fishing villages are closely linked to the region, giving the area a rustic appearance. There are many restaurants and bars in the main street, Rua das Pedras, which start to fill up after 9:00 pm and stay open very late, where live music is played for all tastes.
