CWT Leisure: there’s more to Rio than just the carnival!

Why not experience this melting pot of high-spirited joie de vivre and party with the Brazilians as only they know how to do! Learn how to dance the samba on the street and watch the competition between samba schools in the “Sambódromo”.


In addition to its unique carnival, which attracts over 300,000 tourists every year, Rio de Janeiro has plenty more to offer throughout the entire year. With its enviable seaside location, it is the ideal place to combine a city tour with a beach holiday at the legendary Copacabana, which many travelers think of as the ultimate beach to stay. In any case, we recommend staying at a hotel with a rooftop terrace in Rio, as the view over the city is stunning.


The diverse cuisine of this country is just as colorful and vibrant as its carnival. African influences blend together with Portuguese traditions and chefs make use of the ingredients that nature provides: fish and seafood, fruits and roots as well as cassava and beans. Surely no menu is complete without grilled meat, known as churrasco. Are you feeling inspired to travel to Brazil now?


We have put together the “Highlights of Brazil” for you in one journey. If you’re interested in any other destinations or need help with your trip, our CWT Leisure teams are happy to advise you and answer your questions. Your experts for leisure travel:
