The beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro is one of Brazil's most popular destinations, although often mistaken to be the capital of Brazil, the capital of Brazil is Brasília and not Rio de Janeiro.
Rio is the perfect destination for a couple who is hoping to make their honeymoon the trip of a lifetime.
Here are some main cities and activities we recommend:
Tijuca National Park: The largest urban rainforest on the planet, offering hang-gliding, hiking and wildlife-watching. Once there you will also be able to visit and see Christ the Redeemer inside the park which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Grumari Beach: If you are looking for the perfect beach in Rio, Grumari will take your breath away.
Santa Teresa: If you love art then visit this artsy and bohemian district. Checkout out the sidewalk mosaics or the many eclectic art galleries.
Sugar Loaf Mountain: Ride up the cable cars to the top of this 1,299-foot peak. High above Brazil.
For the food lovers: Brazil is known to have a variety of delicious foods and sweet treats, here are some you should definitely try out:
Pão de queijo: Cheese buns made out of corn flour.
Feijoada: A stew of beans with beef.
Brigadeiro: Chocolate truffles made with condensed milk instead of cream and covered in chocolate sprinkles.
