Activities to do in Brazil


The spectacular metropolis of Rio de Janeiro is buzzing right now: travellers are treated to iconic white sand beaches, centuries of fascinating history, verdant rainforests and majestic mountains. It’s time to discover for yourself why this city is dubbed the ‘cidade maravilhosa’ – marvelous city!

Climb Corcovado and admire Christ the Redeemer – Located in Tijuca National Park, the 125-foot Christ the Redeemer statue is recognized by many as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The statue of Jesus Christ sits atop the granite Corcovado Mountain at 2, 300 feet, allowing all of Rio to witness its grandeur. And did you know that Corcovado translates as ‘hunchback’ in Portuguese!

Chill out on Grumari Beach – With no luxury hotels, kiosks or restaurants in sight, visitors have plenty of space to stretch their legs along more than a mile of red and white sand while taking in Rio’s distinctive beauty. A favourite beach of local sunbathers, Grumari Beach is far from the crowded, tourist-filled beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana.

Explore Tijuca National Park – Spanning a massive 8, 300 acres, Tijuca National Park is by far the most immense urban rainforest in the world. Here, visitors can experience a myriad of activities. From admiring the famed Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio to hiking and hang-gliding, a day of fun-filled activities is just a stone’s throw away at this urban retreat. Open from 8 am to 5 pm every day of the week, Tijuca National Park is brimming with activity all day long.

Experience Jardim Botânico – Covering 340 acres, Jardim Botânico is a tropical paradise consisting of more than 6, 000 breathtaking species of flora, awing and inspiring hundreds of visitors each day. Originally opened in 1822, the botanical paradise has become a sanctuary for tourists and locals alike. Located only a few minutes north of Ipanema, Jardim Botânico can be easily accessed by numerous buses in Zona Sul.

Is Brazil really that dangerous? | Yahoo Answers

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
