Rio de Janeiro has numerous resorts that gather some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. Likewise, it includes super charming mountain towns and a capital known worldwide for its parties. Therefore, see the main tourist places and destinations to visit in Rio de Janeiro

THE Rio de Janeiro is probably the state that receives the most leisure tourists in Brazil. In fact, the beautiful beaches that bathe the south side of the wonderful city, such as Copacabana and Ipanema, are among the favorites of visitors. However, the city offers much more than beautiful beaches. Tijuca Forest, for example, has several trails, waterfalls and natural viewpoints that allow tourists to enjoy the beauty of the city from other perspectives.

In addition, places like Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Corcovado, Sugarloaf Mountain and Flamengo Park are also worth a visit. In this way, the carioca night can be enjoyed in the neighborhoods of Lapa and Santa Tereza in the various concert halls, restaurants and traditional bars in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

paradise beaches

in the south of state, the paradisiacal beaches of the region affectionately called Costa Verde, above all reserve many attractions such as the historic city of paraty and the wonderful bay of Angra dos Reis, with its 365 islands scattered over the horizon. Among them, Ilha Grande, undeniably an ecological refuge with many stories and breathtaking landscapes.

Furthermore, the cities of Búzios, Cabo Frio and Cable camp, in the north of state, are part of the popular Lagos Region (also known as Costa Azul). Eventually, this part of the state is very popular for its beaches with waters in such an intense blue tone that they remind us of the Caribbean beaches.

With a landscape very different from the beautiful beaches of state, the mountain region is above all one of the main places in Rio de Janeiro and also contributes a lot to the growth of local tourism. In this way, cities like Petrópolis, Teresópolis and Visconde de Mauá, offer complete structure to tourists in the midst of beautiful landscapes lined with waterfalls and beautiful mountains.
