Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro
Easily the main landmark in this beautiful city, this venerated statue can be seen from all over, perched as it is atop the high Corcovado Mountain. It is about equidistant from Copacabana and the city centre, residing within the lush Tijuca Forest National Park, and can be accessed on foot via a semi-tough path or by the narrow gauge Corcovado Rack Railway. Trains are frequent and the views are stunning. Rio Water Planet
This is a fun attraction and day out for those who are here with kids. Located in the Barra district, it comes with the typical fast slides and more sedate watery rides, like a lazy river, and an array of well-set paddling pools. It also has artificial beaches, waterfalls, a circus, and a go-karting track, and is open for most of the season. Metropolitan Cathedral
Situated in the Centro area is one of the city’s main manmade landmarks, the Catedral Metropolitana. Though only hailing from the 1970s, this striking structure that graces the downtown skyline it is an important ecclesiastical house and an especially pretty image when lit up at night. Around 20,000 people can be seated here for Mass and it is home to fine murals and sculptures. Eating and drinking and shopping nearbyEating out in Rio de Janeiro is a blast, with a huge number of seafood eateries and grilled-meat restaurants, along with tasty kiosks along the main beaches. Many of the big hotels have good eating, such as the centrally located Arena Copacabana Hotel. Bars and clubs are just as numerous as restaurants, with the latter often quite raucous and opening until late. Shopping is also a pastime, with Avenida Nossa Senhora de in Copacabana the best spot for souvenirs. Public transportGaleao International Airport is the main gateway to Rio, with shuttles and taxis bringing visitors to their hotel. Getting around the city is best done by metro. The metro system has a couple of lines which cover the important areas; Line 1 takes in the city and the main beaches, like Copacabana and Ipanema. It is quick, timely, safe, and cheap, and buying tickets and getting information is straightforward. Alternatively, buses can be used to access all of the beaches and many other areas. They are cheap, with discounted passes available. Stick with licensed cabs or the cable car for accessing Sugarloaf Mountain.
