Find out more about Rio de Janeiro

Rio is known as the party capital of the world, where fiesta is the default setting. It’s the perfect destination for full-on fun, whether you’re on a family trip of a lifetime, a romantic getaway, or an indulgent break with friends. Live the high life on its legendary beaches, dance till dawn in sophisticated clubs, and enjoy some of the best food in the world. Alternatively, look beyond the glitz and glamor to discover breathtaking natural beauty and fascinating culture on your five-star Rio de Janeiro vacation.

Things to see in Rio de Janeiro



It’s hard to avoid seeing one of Rio de Janeiro’s top attractions—the vast statue of Christ the Redeemer towers over the city from every angle. For a spectacular view of this iconic masterpiece, splash out on a scenic cable car ride to the summit of Sugarloaf Mountain, followed by a delightful train journey through the rainforest to reach the statue itself atop neighboring Corcovado Mountain. Back down at sea level, head for Barra da Tijuca for a spot of sun-worshipping—this upscale beach resort is less crowded than Copacabana, with wonderful restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and chic designer boutiques where you can indulge in a spot of Rio-style retail therapy. Take a trip to beautiful Petrópolis, where the former imperial summer palace has been converted into a fascinating museum of Brazilian art, and check out the program of son et lumière performances, which display this architectural gem in a new light.

5-star hotels in Rio de Janeiro



If you enjoy the finer things in life, you’ll find plenty of 5-star hotels in Rio de Janeiro that will meet your expectations—and then some. The city offers a wide choice of five-star accommodation, from deluxe beach resorts to ritzy boutique hotels in some of the city’s most prestigious neighborhoods. Expect a high level of service, coupled with sumptuous furnishings and a range of added-value amenities such as swimming pools, spas, and gourmet restaurants. Many of Rio’s best hotels have direct beach access—ask for a room with a private balcony and soak up the sun away from the crowds.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro



One of the best places to stay in Rio de Janeiro is on the beach. For somewhere a little quieter than Copacabana but with just as much atmosphere, try Ipanema. This affluent neighborhood boasts a variety of well-appointed modern resorts and older-style 5-star Rio hotels with bags of character. Chic Barra has high-end hotels which boast fabulous sea views from their rooftop terraces. Escape the bustle of the city center with a base in the traffic-free Zona Sul—many charming boutique hotels are tucked away in the streets around leafy Edmundo Bittencourt Square, where you can appreciate a truly authentic Rio atmosphere.

How to get to Rio de Janeiro



Rio has two airports, with most direct international flights arriving into Galeão. Alternatively, you can fly to São Paulo and hop on an internal transfer to Santos Dumont Airport. The BRT (Bus Rapid Transport) is the best public transportation option to reach downtown, but for speed and ease, consider pre-booking a private shuttle direct to your hotel. Pick up a hire car from the airport or from Copacabana for freedom to follow your own itinerary during your stay. If you prefer to leave the navigating to others, downtown Rio has an efficient metro system, as well as plentiful licensed cabs.
