You might have seen photographs or even a movie or two about the city, but nothing will prepare you for the incredible atmosphere and energy of Rio de Janeiro. From the heights of Sugar Loaf Mountain to the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro vacations will take you to a city filled to the brim with nightclubs, bars, waterfront restaurants, designer stores, and locals whose beauty is matched only by the impressive cityscape to be found every which way you turn.
Along with the colossal art deco figure of Christ the Redeemer, Carnival is another of Rio's famous calling cards. While it might seem out of sync for such a religiously-rooted city to host a festival where pushing the boundaries is the name of the game, Rio de Janeiro takes it in stride and easily adjusts to its many identities. While here, you can visit beautiful churches in the city centre, dance to the rhythm of samba beats in Lapa, surf the swells of Guanabara, or enjoy an oasis of calm in the rainforests of Tijuca National Park. The ways to spend your time in the city are endless, but we'll give you a head start with incredibly cheap vacations to Rio de Janeiro. With deep discounts on your trip before you even get on the flight, you can spend as much time as you like getting to know and love Brazil's cidade maravilhosa, or marvelous city.
