Cheap Flights To Rio de Janeiro

The locals call this city Cidade Maravilhosa, “Marvellous City”, and when you book your flights to Rio de Janeiro with Globehunters, you’ll see why!

Dramatic and iconic landmarks such as the Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches and the decadence of Carnival are just some of the reasons people love to visit this fiery Brazilian city.

With a stretch of 56 miles of beautiful white beaches, and lying just outside of two rainforests, Rio has an extraordinarily beautiful natural backdrop, which is almost reason enough to visit on its own!

However, it’s also home to a number of historical and cultural attractions, such as the Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM) and Museu Histórico Nacional, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site town of Paraty.

Carnival is also a big draw for tourists, but do bear in mind just how busy it will be during this time.

Of course, no visit would be complete without visiting the main sights of Christ the Redeemer, the Maracanã stadium and Sugarloaf Mountain, which offers unforgettable views on the cable car journey up.
