"Cidade maravilhosa
cheia de encantos mil,
cidade maravilhosa,
coraçao de meu Brasil..."

"Wonderful city, full of thousand charms, wonderful city, heart of my Brazil..." says the popular song composed by André Filho. And Rio has thousand charms... and more!

"Ciudad maravillosa, llena de mil encantos, ciudad maravillosa, corazón de mi Brasil..." dice la popular canción de André Filho. Y Río tiene mil encantos... y muchos más!


Copacabana probably is the most famous beach in the world. The sea, the sand, its peculiar sidewalks, the wonderful sights, the important buildings, give Copacabana a distinctive character.

Copacabana es, probablemente, la playa más famosa del mundo. El mar, la arena, sus peculiares veredas, las maravillosas vistas, los edificios importantes, le dan a Copacabana un carácter distintivo.

You can take a walk along the white and black sidewalks any time; there is nothing better to cheer up!

Puedes caminar por las veredas con diseños en blanco y negro a cualquier hora del día; no hay nada mejor para animarse!

    I had a FREE ticket for Brazil for New Year's Eve! Aaaaaah, I passed on it........anyways, Santa Claus is sending me to Argentina for Tango lessons because I was a good girl this year! Maybe if I'm naughty, he'll send me to Rio! ;-))

    Sounds like an amazing place! I would be very disapointed if I came to Rio and I could not see the statue of Christ and the veiw.

    I'm sorry Andrea, when I think of Rio, I don't think about Corcovado and Redeemer Christ...but the little thong binkinis!!! Is this wrong??? Please spank this caballero for his impure thoughts...

    I love Rio de Janeiro and Petropolis. However, contrary to local legend, the Wright Brothers were first in flight.
