Need some help planning your itinerary? Here’s a crash course of the top ten things you need to check out once you’re there.
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. If the thought of an overblown Latin American Mardi Gras makes you want to get up and shake your groove thing, then this is a must-see for you. If the thought of seeing flamboyantly dressed men and women smothered in feathers, sequins, bright colors and little else sounds like your kind of people-watching, then this is a must-see for you as well. Basically, it’s one of those things that would be inexcusable to miss if you’re in town because you are guaranteed to create some vivid memories for years to come.
Christ the Redeemer Statue
One of the largest and most iconic statues in the world, this huge replica of Christ overlooks Rio with open arms. It stands over 100 feet tall by itself and considering it’s perched on top of Corcovado Mountain, it’s literally about as close to Heaven as a man-made structure can be. Needless to say, this is a photo-op you can’t pass up.
Hundreds of Miles of Beaches…
There are too many public access points to name just one, but it would be hard to be disappointed with any of the white sandy stretches that border much of the country’s coast. Dotted with lush greenery and palm trees, you can just as easily lounge under a cabana at an upscale chic resort or strip down completely at a nude beach! Copacabana and Ipanema are pretty well-known beaches across the globe; the latter was even the topic of a hit song in the 60’s.
