Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-port

There’s a little bit of Carnival celebrated here everyday. From its famous beaches to its iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio radiates an air of exuberance that is hard to find anywhere else. Make the scene on trendy Ipanema or take a cable car to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain and enjoy the amazing views. Sway your hips to the rhythm at a samba show or enjoy the tranquility of king Dom João VI’s Botanical Gardens and verdant Tijuca Forest.

    Begin with a scenic transfer by 4-wheel drive jeep to the Botanical Gardens, passing Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon and the residential area known as Jardim Botanico due to its proximity to the Botanical Gardens. This lush oasis was inaugurated in 1808 by the king, Dom João VI. As in imperial times, the gardens have remained a haven of peace amid a teeming metropolis. A guided walk at a leisurely pace will let you enjoy the many varieties of plants and examples of endangered species. The most striking features are the transverse avenues of 90-foot-high royal palms. In addition to the flora, the gardens are also home of some 140 species of birds and monkeys living in the trees. Your guide will show you the orchid nursery and the insect-eating plants house. Half natural jungle, half laid out in beautifully landscaped gardens; visitors never fail to enjoy spending time in these magical surroundings. From the Botanical Gardens, head to the western fringes of Rio, where various forests were united to form an 8,200-acre national park. The 4-wheel drive vehicles will take you through mountainous areas and deep into the lush, green forest. You will make a stop at the Chinese Lookout. From a Chinese-style pavilion there are great views of the Corcovado and Sugar Loaf mountains, Ipanema and Leblon beaches, and the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon. Then continue with your drive to the Taunay Waterfalls for another stop before heading towards the exit and your drive back to the pier.
