As you'd expect from a major city, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is full of colorful neighborhoods. You'll find Rio de Janeiro International Airport 8 miles from all the excitement of Rio de Janeiro's downtown area.
If you plan to visit Rio de Janeiro, be sure to check out Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Christ the Redeemer.
Starbucks is an one of the top local places for a morning caffeine fix or afternoon sugar hit. If something more filling is needed, try Empório da Empada for an appetizing meal. Afterwards, finish up relaxing day at Palaphita, a local watering hole where locals meet for a social drink.
