What else can we see in Rio during the Olympics?

Firstly it must be stated that Copacabana Beach is an incredible 4km spit of heavenly sand that is not only a huge tourist attraction every year but will also accommodate many of the events itself. This is a perfect place to watch these events because not only is the view breath-taking but it is also surrounded by a variety of local authentic bars and restaurant creating a fantastic vibe for festivity and fun. Rio’s famous reputation for its party and carnival spirit is sure to be reflected by the proud natives bringing together so many cultures on one beautiful city.

Following on from the traditional Brazilian party spirit there is a great love for samba dancing and music in Brazil. Although Samba did originate in Africa it has been adopted and adapted by the Brazilian people for over a century and now has its own unique sound and style.



If you do not want to be amongst the crowds at Copacabana Beach then you can go to the more remote white beaches in the south zone. Ipanema and Leblon are popular amongst residence with lots of stylish bars hotels and restaurants.



Rio De Janeiro is also home to one of the seven wonders of the world, Christ the Redeemer. It was first build in 1921 to celebrate a century of Brazil’s independence. It is easily accessible by train and remains one or Rio’s biggest tourist attractions.
