miss our latest additions. Enjoy a stroll along Rio de Janeiro's Botanical Garden, or
experience the typical food and cultural traditions of the Feira
do Nordeste. Visit the hills of Penedo and Parque
do Itatiaia, Brazil's first National Park a couple of hours
away from the city. Our next Off-Rio suggestion is Paraty,
a preserved historical town and a diver's paradise with hundreds
of islands to choose from.
Pictours of Rio is illustrated with hundreds of
original photos. To give you an idea of quantity, the last time
we counted there were over 500
images of Carnival alone! To give you an idea of quality, we
have photos on display in two U.S. museums, and a number of
international publications. Be our guest, and pick your pictour!
Joggers, cyclers and skaters rule on the bicycle
lane, and along the beach
on Sundays. This is the right
day to watch an exciting roda de capoeira!
And when you get tired from all the activities, grab a cold drink, and go
people watching at Cap
Rio de Janeiro's Princess of the Sea, Copacabana
certainly has something for everyone. You will find everything from
building to strip
clubs, from posh hotels
along the beach to sex hotels
that you pay by the hour, from millionaires living in mansions, to working
class families sharing tiny studios.
Add a gorgeous
beach where everybody gets
together, a main street where you can buy everything you can think of, and
you will start to appreciate some of its charm. It will become a permanent
love affair when you find about the New
Year's festivities, that
attract 2 million people from all over the world! Use the clickable
