What to See
- Christ the Redeemer: The impressive art deco statue of Jesus Christ at the top of the Corcovado mountain in Tijuca Forest National Park might be the most recognizable spot in Rio de Janeiro (and maybe even Brazil). Don't miss out on climbing the stairs to the top and snapping a selfie.
- Sugarloaf Mountain: Take a cable car up to Pão de Acúcar for your chance to take breathtaking photos of the city. You get 360-degree views on the way up, so get your Instagram or Snapchat ready.
- Maracanã Stadium: Soccer fans will have to visit the largest stadium in Brazil and the site of the national team's now-famous defeat by Uruguay during the 1950 FIFA World Cup.
