From the favelas and beaches to the largest urban forest in the world complete with waterfalls and 350 animal species, it’s one of South America’s most vibrant cities. With the magnificent Christ the Redeemer gazing over the city atop Corcovado, below lies the azure sea and jungle-clad mountains that define the landscape.

This is peak season and you could really visit Rio de Janeiro during any time of year, but the festivities of Carnaval are worth the trip alone. The city comes alive in a riot of colour and festivity as the locals (Cariocas) embrace the party spirit. The largest carnival festival in the world, control of the city is handed over to the mythical and party-loving King Momo.
