The Experience

Rio de Janeiro, where sparkling waters, beautiful people, historic neighborhoods, and museums combine with the rich sounds of Samba to create one of the most striking cities in the world. The “Cidade Maravilhosa” (Marvelous City), as Brazilians call it, displays a unique blend of bustling metropolis with beautiful mountain ranges, rain forests and wetlands, tremendous wealth and crushing poverty. Old traditions are juxtaposed with the city’s push for modernity.
