Rio De Janeiro Travel Guide

Brazil oozes excitement and color, and you can find accommodations capturing the country’s most enticing qualities, and Brazil hotel deals to suit any budget. Below are sites showing a variety of hotels, eco lodges, and budget-friendly hostels.

As you stand at the feet of the Christ, you will be able to pick out other city landmarks such as Copacabana beach and the world-famous Maracana football stadium. Standing with outstretched arms, embracing the stunning cityscape below, the statue of Christ the Redeemer (Christo Redentor) is one of the most famous landmarks in the world. The statue stands atop the 700-metre Corcovado (meaning hunchback) mountain, and to come to Rio without visiting ‘the big guy’ would be simply unthinkable. Indeed, in 2007 the Christo Redentor was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World by the New Open World Corporation. At 39.6 metres tall and weighing 700 tons, the Christ statue is an impressive sight in itself, but it is the views from his mountain-top home, high amid the trees of the Tjuca Forest, that really make the trip a must do.

Brazil is a hotbed for ecotourism, and you’ll find countless resorts and lodges capitalizing on the trend, some of which don’t live up to all their claims. Before you book, be aware that true ecotourism is sustainable and benefits locals. Learn more by consulting the International Ecotourism Society.
