Where to start in Rio de Janeiro? The city is so bursting with life, both in the centre and in the forests surrounding the city, your holiday here could be jam packed from beginning to end. Brightsun Travel has year round cheap holidays to Rio de Janeiro, including flights from UK, and stays at some iconic hotels in the city. You could stay near the city’s famous beaches, Copacabana beach and Ipanema beach, or position yourself in the upmarket neighbourhood of Sao Conrado, and stay at the glamorous Hotel Nacional, once frequented by Hollywood movie stars, which in 2016 was elegantly restored to its former glory. In Rio you could take a cable car up to the top of Pão de Açúcar, or hike the Corcovado Mountain and enjoy incredible views of the city. Alternatively, you could take a ferry to the beautiful island of Niteroí, with beautiful beaches, like Itacoatiara beach, which will take you away from the crowds for the afternoon. If it’s art that interests you, the Instituto Moreira Salles cultural centre is a must see or simply relax in the central Parque Lage and enjoy views of the mountains and Rio’s famous Christ the Redeemer statue.
In this coastal city, you could happily spend your days at the beach, joining locals playing volleyball, and sipping caipirinhas while watching the sun go down. But more than a city or beach break, Rio offers a gateway to the spectacular forests and jungles of Latin America. The incredible Parque Nacional da Tijuca that surrounds the city, offers walking trails that take you past waterfalls and caves. Go a little further, and in just under an hour’s drive from the city, you could reach the Serra dos Órgãos National Park, with mountain ranges and unique species of plant and wildlife. Finally, en route to Sao Paulo, you could visit the Serra da Bocaina National Park and spot cats in the wild.
