Most people still think of Rio de Janeiro as Brazil’s capital city although that title was lost to Brasilia in 1960. But there’s one title that Rio is in no risk of losing: its nickname, Cidade Maravilhosa (The Marvellous City). Rio’s harbour is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and its Copacabana and Ipanema beaches have been immortalised in song.

As well as being a pop culture favourite, Rio is one of the most visited cities in the Southern Hemisphere. People are drawn to Rio de Janeiro for its famous Carnival, chilled out beach life, and the stunning cityscape presided over by Christ the Redeemer and Sugarloaf Mountain.

The city can be split up into four distinct zones: Centro, Zona Sul, Zona Norte, and Zona Oeste. Wherever you choose to stay in Rio you’re sure to be right in the middle of the action, with plenty of noise and nightlife to go around.

Centro

Head to the bustling downtown district for cultural sightseeing in Rio’s many museums, art galleries, and churches. There’s no shortage of hotels in the city centre, either. Wander through the Passeio Publico with its rococo gates and ironwork fountains, and admire the elaborate interior of Candelaria Church. Check out the Carnaval Museum and take a boat out to Ilha Fiscal Palace. Party animals should make their way to the Lapa neighbourhood after dark, as it’s the centre of Rio’s vibrant nightlife. Samba music pours out of the 18th Century buildings as the in-crowd sip caipirinha cocktails.

Zona Sul

The South Zone is a major tourist area, and it’s where you’ll find Rio de Janiero’s most famous landmarks. There are a lot of big hotels in the South neighbourhoods, perfect for visitors who plan on spending a lot of time soaking up the beach culture. Take a tram to Corcovado where you’ll get a great view of Rio, and see Christ the Redeemer up close.  Pick up some souvenirs at the arts and craft fair at Ipanema, or pick up a designer bargain at Hype Babalonia.

Zona Norte

The North Zone is Rio’s football district, and is famous for being the home of Maracana Stadium and Engenhao Stadium. Make time to catch a football match between local teams like Flamengo and Fluminese. Don’t forget to look down in Vila Isabel where twenty musical works can be seen carved into the concrete. The 19th Century Quinta da Boa Vista is home to Rio’s Zoo and National Museum, making it a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Zona Oeste

The West Zone of Rio is becoming more popular with tourists, and big name hotels have recently moved into the area. There’s lots to see and do, particularly in the Barra da Tijuca neighbourhood which is home to one of the best beaches in Rio and some of the city’s best nightclubs. The West side is also home to Pedra Branca State Park, where you can spot animals like sloths and toucans.
