Rio de Janeiro - Brasil's Ultimate Beach City
Situated in southeast Brazil, on the natural port of the Baia de Guanabara (Guanabara Bay), Rio is a city of over ten million people squeezed between the ocean and the mountains. The cidade marvilhosa (marvelous city) is a melting pot of cultures and peoples in varying degrees of wealth or poverty. In Rio, the rich and poor live together and the exclusive areas stand in stark contrast and close proximity to the slum areas or favelas. But no matter what their background or economic standing, the Cariocas – as the citizens of Rio are known – are characterized by a passion and enthusiasm for life, which is on full show during Rio’s famous annual Carnival.
