I've haven't been to Brazil yet, but they've got beaches and sunshine, so count me in!

If you want to escape the confines of your everyday life, you should plan a trip to Rio de Janeiro. Host of the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rio de Janeiro is bursting with culture, history, and entertainment. A trip there will revive your senses – everything from the sights to the delicious food is tantalizing and exotic. Still not convinced? Let’s look at three reasons you must experience Rio de Janeiro for yourself.


Magnificent Scenery

Rio de Janeiro is not simply a beautiful place, it is unlike any other state you will visit. Its landscape is both mountainous and home to some of the most popular beaches in the world. Tourists flock to Copacabana Beach and Ipanema Beach yearly to relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. The miraculous Christ the Redeemer statue also draws tourists to Rio – it is truly a sight to behold and an experience you do not want to miss.

Culture Abounds

The people of Rio de Janeiro have multiple reasons to be proud of their heritage and celebrate it. Tourists are instantly drawn to their zest for life, their festive spirits, and their history. For example, it is common for visitors on the city tour Rio de Janeiro to experience both the history and the culture in the area of Lapa where the historical monuments share space with the city’s passionate nightlife scene. Guests will be treated to samba music and an experience they will never forget. 


Delicious Food

If you visit Rio de Janeiro and only experience the amazing Brazilian cuisine, that will be enough. Their food is flavorful (to say the least). The wisest tourist will aim to eat like a carioca (a local) which means sampling foods that have the flavors of Africa, European, and Amerindian dishes. From street food to gourmet cosmopolitan feasts, tourists can experience authentic Brazilian meals no matter their budgets. 


So, what are you waiting for? Plan your visit to Rio de Janeiro today!
