Enjoy a Beach Day
A trip to Rio without experiencing the magic of the seaside is incomplete. A day at the beach can be relaxing as you walk along the scenic promenades, rejuvenate with the refreshing sea breeze, and experience stretches of white sand. There's more fun at the beaches with parasol-shaded sun loungers and games like beach volleyball and tennis. Get ready to have fun with your family as you relax at chic beaches like Ipanema Beach or Copacabana Beach.
Explore the Parks and Gardens
We all love sites of nature where we can soak up the scenic backdrops, have fun conversations, and relax, don't we? Rio de Janeiro is blessed with parks and gardens that can enthral you. Take out time to visit the public park Parque Lage, the vast forested area at Tijuca National Park and the massive urban park Parque Brigadeiro Eduardo Gomes, and the garden trails at Jardim Botanico do Rio de Janeiro. The lush gardens and parks are great spots to spend some tranquil moments with family.
