    Christ the Redeemer

    Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro - State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    82 reviews

    The best panoramic view of Rio is definitely from the Cristo. You can see all the major landmarks and beaches and if you were in doubt of why Rio is called the wonderful city you won't have any questions after coming here. The statue of the Christ is also an amazing work of art itself. Get real close and see ...

    Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas

    Avenida Epitácio Pessoa, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22471-001, Brazil
    34 reviews

    The Lagoa is one of Rio's most visually dramatic spots, surrounded by monolithic curves and flashes of emerald green from the Tijuca Forest. The 7 km track that runs around the lagoon links some of the city's most charming neighbourhoods and provides a great natural sports track for Rio's exercise bunnies. I love seeing the city change from different angles ...

    A short little stretch of sand between Copacabana and Ipanema Beach, Praia do Arpoador is a popular place for surfers. It's cool seeing them in the morning out in the waves with their surfboards.

    Barra da Tijuca

    Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
    17 reviews

    I would not stay in a hotel here (although the Sheraton is very nice) just because the best nightlife is in Leblon, about 20 mins away and cabs are not cheap. However, the beach is less crowded and just as nice if not nicer than in Leblon. There are modern condos, a shopping center, etc - everything is here but ...

    Copacabana Beach

    Rio de Janeiro, State of Rio de Janeiro, United States
    16 reviews

    Directly behind my hometown of San Francisco, Rio de Janerio is my new favorite city in the world. During the day, I was endlessly entertained by miles of beaches and fascinating people watching. Thankfully, I could rent the trademark red umbrella and extend my stay on the beach for the entire afternoon. Every 100 yards or so there is a ...

    Bondinho de Pao de Acucar

    15 reviews

    The bondinho ("cable car" in Portuguese) is the mode of transportation to get up to Pao de Acucar (Sugar Loaf Mountain) in Rio. The cable car was reconstructed in 2008 and takes visitors up and down the mountain every 20 minutes. For a steep incline, the ride is surprisingly short and smooth.

    Parque Lage

    Rua Jardim Botânico, 414, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, 22461-000, Brazil
    15 reviews

    Close to the Botanical Garden, it's smaller but still a relaxing place. Go there for a walk or make a picnic; if you go early you can enjoy the breakfast at Cafe du Lage, with a glance of the Christ the Redeemer in the back.

    Rua Marques de Sapucaí, Sapucaia 25880 Brazil
    10 reviews

    Carnaval in Rio is the most incredible event I have ever seen. There are about 10 samba schools that parade down the Sambadromo throughout the evening, each of which has a theme such as an artist or dairy (yes, as in milk and cheese). They sing the same song over and over, and somehow everyone in the audience knows all ...
