What's Rio de Janeiro Like?
The massive statue Cristo Redentor - Christ the Redeemer - is perhaps the most iconic and enduring image of Rio de Janeiro. While it certainly give a hint as to the big and bold styles of much of the city, there is far more to see than that. Rio's Maracana Stadium was used for the 2014 World Cup and houses the Soccer Museum, dedicated to the history of the beautiful game and underlining the sport's importance for both city and country. Rio is resplendent with beaches and gardens, with Arpoador, Copacabana, and Jardim Botanico providing the most stunning examples of each. Rio de Janeiro also is home to a thriving and colorful artistic tradition, with both local displays and street art, as well as major halls and galleries such as the Instituto Moreira Salles. There is also plenty of history to be had as well, though, with the magnificent Paço Imperial and the Museu Histórico Nacional standing as monuments to the rich cultural history of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil since their founding. There is so much to see - so be sure to use Hotels.com to find Rio de Janeiro hotels that will help you see it all.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro is a big place, and requires a bit more care on the part of the traveler to get the most out of their visit. If you plan to explore the city, you'll probably need to rely on taxis; be sure to hail them from taxi stands and stick to the yellow ones. Rio is safer than its reputation suggests, but it is still best to avoid exploring too much after dark. Rio's beaches are always thriving and are a hotspot for the locals with their own unique culture, and the food vendors that frequent the beaches with empadas and sandwiches are generally quite good. Other edible notables include Rio's many churrascaria restaurants. For mingling with local artists, Bairro de Santa Teresa is your best bet, though the arts scene is thriving in Rio wherever you go. Nightlife in Rio is very diverse, but be sure to check out the underground music scene, both modern and traditional. And, a word of advice: it's worth seeing a football match or two, but to avoid offending anyone, avoid taking sides! Altogether, Rio is a can't-miss destination - and to make sure you don't miss out on a great deal, make sure to use Hotels.com to find Rio de Janeiro hotels!
