The Best of What Rio De Janeiro Has To Offer Tourists

The extravagant city of Rio De Janeiro in Brazil is nicknamed the "cidade maravilhosa" which when translated into English means the "marvelous city". And visitors from outside Brazil who spend any length of time in Rio have no trouble understanding why it earned that moniker.

The majestic mountains and stunningly beautiful white-sand beaches of Rio De Janeiro help to make it one of the world's most popular and exciting travel destinations. But there is so much more to this South American city than the scenery and warm ocean water.

Almost three million tourists visit Rio every year and for good reason. It features a bevy of fantastic hotels and resorts, more than fifty miles of beaches, and the city itself has received the World Travel Awards best destination honor more times than any other city in South America.

There is so much to see and do in Rio De Janeiro that a solid month of daily tourism throughout the city would only cover a fraction of what it has to offer. The Lagoa neighborhood in Rio's Zona Sul area is one of the most upscale neighborhoods on the South American continent. It features several open-air cafes and restaurants and is a popular area for cycling and jogging.

Just west of Lagoa is the Jardim Botanico which is Rio's extensive botanical garden. It features over eight thousand plant species, six hundred different orchid species, and the entire garden is dotted with palm trees and a variety of beautiful fountains.

Corcovado Peak is the world-famous 2,300-foot high mountain peak where the Cristo Redentor - or Christ the Redeemer - statue stands. This iconic soapstone and concrete statue is one of the most recognizable statues in the world and visitors can ride a series of escalators and elevators up the entire height of the mountain to see the statue up close.

Rio De Janeiro has so much to offer its local and international visitors that simply cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Other attractions like the Copacabana, Tijuca National Park, and Sugarloaf Mountain not only attract visitors from around the globe but keep them coming back to experience this amazing and exciting city.
