8 Top things to do in Rio

With the summer 2016 Olympic games in Rio upon us, I thought I would re-visit one of my favorite places and share some of the things to do in this awesome city. Rio is one of those places you have to experience for yourself, words and pictures do not do it justice.

Without further a due, here are the top 8 things to do / see. 1) Cocovado mountain & Christ the Redeemer statue 2) Sugarloaf mountain 3) Ipanema beach 4) Selaron steps 5) Copacabana beach 6) Maracana stadium 7) Niteroi (the nearby town with dreamy quiet beaches) 8) Street markets – the street food is amazing!

I hope you all enjoy the games
