Rio de Janeiro
Whether you initially fly into Rio or simply make time
to head to the city, Rio
de Janeiro has a lot to offer for touring. Brazil
trips through Rio can include time on the beach as well
as time in the city; just one of the major advantages
to Brazil tours of Rio de Janeiro. If you are just arriving
in Brazil, you may want to head to the beach nice and
early to avoid the scorching rays of the afternoon sun.
After enjoying the beach, you can head into the city for
lunch and to begin your exploration of old Rio. Your Brazil
trip through old Rio should include a trip to the Uruguaiana
shopping district. After checking out the colonial architecture
that graces the streets of old Rio, move toward the neighborhood
of Cenelandia and on to the Arcos do Teles. In the evening,
have a late dinner at a restaurant in Rio and go see a
show or band at a local bar.
Many Brazil trips include a trek to or through the
Amazon. Organized Brazil tours through the Amazon
are a must, as the rainforest can be dense, confusing
and even dangerous. A number of companies, however, offer
organized Brazil tours of the Amazon, and for anyone who
has never been they are incredible. Tours in Brazil of
the Amazon will generally combine small water craft travel
with hiking, and last a full day. Lunch is provided for
all Amazon Brazil sightseeing tours, and trips may be
booked in advance or in person in Manaus and Belem, the two largest cities
near the Amazon. A trip through the Amazon will not only
reveal a seemingly mysterious river and rainforest, but
the most diverse ecosystem on the planet, with numerous
species populating the immense foliage.
Located on the border of Brazil and Argentina is Iguassu
Falls, one of the largest and most impressive waterfalls
in the world. Tours in Brazil of the waterfall can be
taken through organized Brazil sightseeing tours companies,
or on your own. The trail that takes tourists along the
Iguassu River and next to the falls is gentle and easily
accessible. Iguassu Falls tours in Brazil can also be
taken as a moonlight tour. Generally a guided tour, the
moonlight tour offers a vision of the falls seen at night.
Ipanema is still one of the most legendary beaches in Brazil, thanks in part to the song that bears its name. And, just like in the song, beautiful Brazilians are bound to be strolling by at any time during the day. Lots of great food and activity can also be found in Ipanema, and this is a great way to spend the day.
As those familiar and not so familiar with soccer likely know, Brazil is a country obsessed with soccer. The Maracana Stadium is the largest in the world, and seeing a game here is a life-altering experience.
