In honour of the 31st Olympics we will focus on the host city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The second largest city in Brazil, Rio is known around the world for being a beach city, it’s famous Carnival and Christ the Redeemer statue overseeing this vibrant metropolis.
With a population of over 10 million in its metropolitan area this South American city has much to see so several days would be needed. Do pack your sunscreen as temperatures can be hot in the summer months (December to March). Winters are cooler but it is still tropical. Aside from Carnival and the beaches there is music, food, sport and museums to fill your days. Not to mention some great views from surrounding mountains and lookouts.
