Rio de Janeiro Brazil Hotel and Travel Guide - Whether you wish to experience
the excitement of a heart-racing good time at Carnaval or relax on the beautiful
beaches at Ipanema or Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro (Rio, for short) is sure to
leave a lasting impression. There are wondrous mountaintops to explore, as well
as an impressive display of wildlife to admire. Follow the rhythmic seduction of
the sounds of samba as you visit the friendly, historic neighborhoods and
entertaining nightlife. There is a never-ending list of museums, cafes, theaters
and natural areas for you to consider while visiting this gem of a city.
While visiting Rio de Janeiro, you may want to pass through one of the historic
downtown areas, such as Centro, Lapa, and Santa Teresa. Here you will encounter
inviting, cobblestone streets, beautiful plazas, churches covered in gold as
well as many buildings displaying various styles of artistic magnificence. If
you have come to Rio with the intention of shopping until you drop, you will not
be disappointed as you will be able to browse the many crafts markets, souvenir
palaces and small shops lining the streets. If you are looking for a larger
place to spend your money, check out the Rio Sul mall or the interesting
boutiques, located in Ipanema. If you are the adventurous type and wish to
admire the great outdoors- you could indulge in a few activities, including
hiking, hang gliding, surfing or rock climbing. There are plenty of things to
do- you just have to take a deep breathe and jump head first into adventure,
excitement and pleasure.
Looking to soak up a bit of Rio de Janeiro culture? When the sun goes down, you
can enjoy the nighttime options for fun and entertainment. Check out one of the
local samba bands or the latest raging talent at one of many live music venues.
Maybe you’d rather feel the music and let your feet speak for you- night clubs
are ready to satisfy this urge, opening around 10pm and changing gears well
after midnight. Check out Cinema Iris for an exciting night of trance, techno
While visiting Rio, you should keep in mind that the language spoken in Brazil
is Portuguese, not Spanish. Looking for someone who understands and speaks
English - educated Brazilians can be of some help. Wherever you choose to stay
within the city, there should be at least a few staff members at hotels, tour
operations and travel agencies that know English. You’ll be lucky to find a few
store clerks and waiters that have picked up the language, but you will be quite
disappointed to know that taxi and bus drivers haven‘t. If you are desperate to
be understood, try to stay around larger cities because if you travel to smaller
towns, you are less likely to encounter a lick of English. So grab a translation
book and visit beautiful Rio, anticipating your arrival, where you can explore
the adventure that awaits.
Rio De Janeiro is one of the most exciting exotic destinations you can find.
