Your guide to Rio de Janeiro

All About Rio de Janeiro

With its combination of shimmering white-sand beaches, breathtaking views, and cosmopolitan lifestyle, Rio de Janeiro is one of South America’s great metropolises. From landmark sites like the hilltop statue Christ the Redeemer to the lesser-known Escadaria Selarón, the Brazilian city lives up to its nickname, Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvelous City). Every February, Rio throws the world’s biggest street party, Carnival, a lively four-day celebration of beating drums, glittering costumes, and swaying hips.

Spend a day among the tanned bodies and gentle waves at Copacabana Beach, or explore the subtropical paradise of Parque Lage. Outdoor activity comes in all forms here, whether it’s hiking in the Tijuca rainforest, cycling alongside lakes and beaches, sailing across Baía de Guanabara, surfing, rock climbing, or hang gliding. And when you’re ready to get out of the sun, Rio’s cultural attractions have plenty to offer, including world-class museums, a diverse mix of architectural styles, craft markets, high-end fashion boutiques, and enough samba and choro music to keep you dancing until the sun comes up.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Rio de Janeiro

Summer, from December through March, is a popular time to visit, when the city is at its most festive. Carnival brings revelers into the city in February — the hottest month of the year. Spring (September through November) is also a good option, when the weather is still warm and there’s little rain. July is Rio’s coolest month, with an average high of 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Other major events in the city include the Festas Juninas, the traditional festivities adapted from European Midsummer that happen at the beginning of the Brazilian winter in June, celebrating the most famous Catholic saints. Festival de Rio brings the year’s best international films to the city in November, and Réveillon is a lively way to ring in the new year with fireworks and dancing.


Top things to do in Rio de Janeiro

Corcovado mountain

Take the cable car up to Corcovado mountain to The Christ the Redeemer statue — one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Once you arrive at the foot of the statue, gaze down at the city and take in the neighborhoods that make up the Zona Sul and out to Guanabara Bay. Try to go early and choose a day with clear weather.

Escadaria Selarón

These colorful 215 steps reside in Rio’s Lapa neighborhood. In 1990, an artist started decorating the staircase outside his home using scavenged tiles. In the years since, it has grown to over 2,000 tiles. While in Lapa, you can also explore hip coffee shops, thrift stores, and lively nightclubs.

Grumari Beach

Head where the locals go on the western shore of Rio. Although it’s about an hour’s drive, Grumari is what some call the city’s most secret beach. The unspoiled nature reserve includes nearly two miles of white and red sand. You’ll want to bring your own food and drink, since there aren’t any restaurants or shops here.
