Santa Cruz Vacations

Santa Cruz lies within Rio de Janeiro. It makes up part of a dynamic city that is home to 6,000,000 inhabitants. The heart of Rio de Janeiro is only 30 miles (48 kilometers) away, while Galeao - Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport is 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the north of Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz is close to a diverse collection of Rio de Janeiro’s attractions. Two sights that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the wonderful Sepetiba Beach and the much-loved Restinga da Marambaia. Also worth checking out are the Roberto Burle Marx Estate and the Sitio Roberto Burle Marx.

Sports lovers should get tickets for HSBC Arena to see the Flamengo Basketball taking on visiting rivals. To look like a local, don’t forget to pack some white, red and black, the colors of the Flamengo Basketball.

If you are planning a trip to Rio de Janeiro, why not base yourself right in Santa Cruz? The area has a great selection of accommodation options. Guaratiba Parque Hotel and the popular IT Grande Hotel Itaguaí, Itaguai, are just two local options where you're sure to find a comfortable bed and a soft pillow.
