Rio de Janeiro is an amazing city with over 6 million friendly inhabitants, making it the second-largest in Brazil. Don't let the favelas deter you from exploring! While touring, just be mindful of your surroundings, and you'll have a wonderful time.
Rio de Janeiro boasts many iconic landmarks, including Sugarloaf Mountain, a "morro" at the entrance of Guanabara Bay. The cable car ride to the top offers spectacular views of the city, airport, and Corcovado. Stop at Urca hill for drinks, souvenirs, or dining before heading to the summit.
It is a well-known landmark, one of the seven wonders of the modern world. It can be reached by car, van, or train. Although crowded, the view is breathtaking. Climbing 250 steps or taking an elevator is required. However, the crowd can make the experience overwhelming.
A visit to these beaches in Rio de Janeiro is a must. Despite controversies during the Olympics about water cleanliness, they are beautiful and offer sports culture. Beach bars, or "kioskos," like Barraca do Pepe, are well known, but Pepe is past Ipanema on Barra do Tijuca beach.
