Tourist Attractions in Rio De Janerio Brazil
Arriving at the colorful Rio de Janeiro, the city itself being one of the worlds Tourist Attractions is extraordinary.
Just taking in the eye candy of a city surrounded in green mountains, covered in Atlantic rainforest, and the samba music on all the happy faces of the cariocas (people born and raised in Rio) is revitalizing!
All though there are many things to see here, try to get in contact with the Brazilian population. They are quite something else.
Me, coming from Europe, found it good to see the curious, open minded, helpful and smiling Brazilians. They are very outgoing and easy to get into contact with.
You don’t have to look far to find the Tourist Attractions in Rio de Janeiro. If you are staying at the Copacabana, you are already in probably the most famous beach in the world. From here you see both the Sugarloaf and the Corcovado mountain with Christ the Redeemer embracing the city.

Here is a list of some Tourist Attractions in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:
• Sugarloaf - A green, unearthly peak rising over Rio de Janeiro, Sugar Loaf is an iconic locale for a bird's eye view of Rio de Janeiro, from Copacabana beach to Corcovado Mountain, as well as an equatorial Rio de Janeiro sunset.
• Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) - Since it was placed a top the 2,300-ft peak of Corcovado mountain in 1931, this figure -- a statue of Christ with his arms apart as if he were embracing the city -- has been one of the most famous symbols of Rio.
• Jardim Botânico (Botanical Garden) - The 340-acre garden, one of Rio's most striking natural attractions, contains more than 5,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants and trees, including 900 varieties of palms. The garden makes for a marvelous afternoon stroll -- especially on a hot day, when the temperature here is usually a good 10 °F cooler than it is on the street.
• Maracanã - This stadium is Brazil's temple of soccer. Home of the best football team on earth. It's a giant among coliseums, easily accommodating more than 100,000 at a time. If sports interest you even the littlest bit, or if you just want a new insight into Brazil, then by all means check out a game of futebol here - preferably a championship game or one between local rivals Flamengo, Vasco, Fluminense or Botafogo. It can be an intense, quasi-psychedelic experience. The sports museum inside the stadium has photos, posters, cups and uniforms of the greats.
Other season related Tourist Attractions in Rio de Janerio and the Copacabana are
the Copacabana Happy New Year’s celebration
, which is rated the second best in the world after New York, and the famous Carnival! The already crowded city gets additional millions of Brazilians from other parts of the country as well as tourists.
I have been here two times during the happy New Year’s celebration and if you intend on going to the city in this high season I recommend making reservations in good time, because it all fills up. Prices are also higher on this time a year, and rise the closer you get to the 1st of January.
