Brazil Travel Packages: Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro, or "River of January," is Brazil's second largest city with about 6.4 million inhabitants and lies between the Atlantic Ocean and a table mountain range. The metropolis is known for its beautiful beaches in Copacabana and Ipanema, Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado Mountain and the Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pao de Açucar). Also worth seeing is the picturesque old villa quarter of Santa Teresa, where mainly artists and alternative inhabitants have settled. For soccer fans, a visit to the legendary Maracana Stadium is of course an absolute must. Discover the pulsating vibe in Rio and be enchanted by its diversity! In the summer (December-February), which in Rio de Janeiro means daily high temperatures of about 86 °F (30 °C), many people spend their vacation in the region. They are especially attracted by Carnival and the samba schools, which enliven the streets of Rio. From June to August, when winter arrives, the climate is drier and not so many tourists come to the city. To that end, winter would be a good time if you want to explore Rio de Janeiro at your leisure. Most Brazilians don't go swimming in the ocean at this time, as the average water temperatures of 72 °F (22 °C) to 73 °F (23 °C) are a bit too cold for them.
