Details

Begin your tour at the base of the Christ the Redeemer monument, which stands at 130 feet (39.6 m) tall, and sits atop Corcovado Mountain. See sweeping views of the area beaches, lagoons, forests, bays, and mountains from one of the recently indoctrinated "New Seven Wonders of the World."

Wander off the beaten path through the Santa Marta favela. Once a dilapidated slum, this area was transformed into a living canvas when residents painted their buildings in a bright and vibrant color scheme.

Wander along the narrow alleyways of a local community with your guide. Meet residents and see sites that were made famous by Michael Jackson in his music video, "They Donít Care About Us." Take in views of Guanabara Bay and the Botofogo areas from the cliff of the favela.
