Introduction

Rio de Janeiro, or simply "Rio," is at once a great city and a great resort. Its beaches, notably Copacabana and Ipanema, are legendary. Its landmarks, particularly Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, are instantly recognizable the world over. Its Mardi Gras is among the wildest on the planet. Its beat and rhythm are nothing short of mesmerizing. It is, indeed, Cidade Maravilhosa – "Marvelous City" – unlike any other city you've ever seen!
