Rio de Janeiro
Relish the revelry in Rio
There's no doubt you've caught a glimpse of Rio during this past week of Olympics excitement. As you can see, Rio de Janeiro is a top destination for adventurers who relish a party.
Rio always promises plenty of activities filled with celebrations, samba parades, singing soccer fans, and parties into the wee hours. If you are there during Brazil’s annual Carnival celebration (February 24th-February 28, 2017), you'll see it captivates every corner of the country with its sparkling parades, all-night street revelry, and pulse-quickening fun.
So how can a visitor navigate all this action, and still have enough energy to let loose and enjoy the colorful frenzy that is Rio? Easy: Sign up for an AutoVenture privately guided experience.
With AutoVenture, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that your English and Portuguese-speaking guide knows where to go — and where not to waste your time — to ensure that you get to experience the best of Rio. Enjoy the sizzling skin at Ipanema beach, dance at Cinelândia, or attend the swanky Magic Ball at Copacabana Palace Hotel.
You can learn how to reserve and don a costume, and join in a Carnival parade. Or take in a high-stakes soccer match, and revel with the victors or shed tears with the losers. And no trip to Brazil is complete without going to Corcovado Hill and the statue of Christ the Redeemer embracing the city below.
When it comes to Rio, let AutoVenture be your guide.
Rio's beloved statue of Jesus perched atop Corcovado mountain is struck by lightning several times a year.
In 2013 the city began installing dozens of QR codes into mosaics around the city to provide tourists with helpful information.
