Rio de Janeiro

An Overnight in Rio De Janeiro

From its famous beaches to its iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro radiates an air of exuberance that is hard to find anywhere else. Stroll Ipanema, Leblon or Copacabana beaches and get a cultural overview at the National History Museum or Teatro Municipal. Take a cable car to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain or ride the Corcovado Railroad to see renowned Christ the Redeemer. Visit Maracana, the soccer stadium where legendary Pele scored his 1000th goal or go for a hike in the lush Tijuca Forest.

Caipirinha

SAIL: Rio de Janeiro. Bring Brazilian flavors and flair home with local lembrancas (mementos). Coffee beans & a bottle of Cachaca are delectable Portuguese purchases. Shop for Bossa nova and Samba music, wooden artifacts, tabletop items and gems.

Coffee beans

SIP: Caipirinha. Brazilian farmers created this refreshing potent potion by combining their abundant crops of sugar cane and limes. Cachaca (fermented sugar cane liqueur) is mixed with muddled fresh limes and sugar for a captivating cocktail.

Feijoada

SAVOR: Feijoada (Beans, beef & pork entree). Feijao is Portuguese for beans hence the name of this hearty national dish of Brazil. It is a stew made with multi-colored beans and sliced spicy sausage served over rice.
