Rio De Janeiro – the glamorous yet urban city where residents dance to their own unique beat. Known to locals as the Marvellous City, Rio’s urban façade is fringed by mountains, white sandy shorelines and infinite rainforests. 

As you stroll through the cosy streets, the Brazilian beats of samba will shadow your every step, there’s no better place to master the art of dance than one of Rio’s dance halls or bars! The city’s world class beaches are also not to be missed, particularly the world famous resort of Copacabana. In Rio De Janeiro, you are encouraged to ‘Live for Today’ – a sure sign that will ensure you revel in every moment of your trip.
