Our vacations in Brazil

Rio de Janeiro

One of the most visited places in Brazil is Rio de Janeiro. The city is famous for its picturesque location among mountains and hills at the Atlantic coast, for its beautiful Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, and for Sugarloaf mountain and Corcovado. We spent several days under deep blue sky and tropical heat, admiring and enjoying the gems of Rio.
