It is the second most populated city in Brazil, attracts the most international tourism in the country and is the first Olympic city in South America.

It is one of the main economic, cultural and financial centres of the country, and is known worldwide for its cultural icons and landscapes, such as the Sugarloaf Mountain, the statue of Christ the Redeemer, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the Maracana stadium, and Tijuca National Park, the biggest urban forest in the world, amongst others.
Visiting Rio de Janeiro
“‘Stunning locations and great to explore so much in such a short space of time.’
“'The tour was well planned and enabled us to see a lot of Brazil in a short time which is exactly what we wanted. Exoticca did an excellent job with the flights so we maximised our stay in Brazil and spent as little time as possible in airports awaiting connections. We also commend Exoticca on the choice of hotels - all were well positioned, offered clean, comfortable accommodation, a good breakfast with plenty of choice, and overall a first class service.'”
“‘The hotel in Rio was excellent and in an amazing position. The airport pickups were all waiting for us on arrival and the pickups and guides for the tours were all punctual, friendly and informative.’
