Rio is blessed with a wonderful natural setting, wedged between the mountains, with contrasting peaks including Sugar Loaf and Corcovado, topped by the famous statue of Christ, and the sea. Underneath lies a colorful state of mind called Carioca, with almost 8 million locals who samba their way, relaxed and high-spirited, through life. There are some thirty miles separating downtown Flamengo from far-flung Recreio, bordered on one side by the blue sea, on the other by verdant hills. Between them lies a colorful state of mind called carioca, with almost 8 million locals who samba their way, relaxed and high-spirited, through life.
The cariocas are known for their warmth, beauty and their fun loving attitude to life yet they are also hard-working and competent. This competence has made Rio one of Brazil’s most important cities economically speaking.
Despite their many hardships, the Brazilians remain a happy nation and this rubs off on the visitor, who often has the opportunity to learn to have a more refreshing outlook on life from the cariocas.
The cariocas will certainly add a very special touch to your group tour, which will make it all the more memorable.
The city of Rio, one of the world’s most exciting, is the venue for your incentive group. Lush vegetation, stunning scenery — a city wedged in between the ocean and the mountains offers you the unique carioca way of life: lots of sun, engaging natives, excellent dinners in world-renowned gourmet restaurants, a gamut of cultural/entertainment options, the lure of aquamarines, emeralds and other precious stones, and boutique shopping that will keep you at it for days.
