The Must See Sights in Rio:
Christ the Redeemer Statue and Corcovado:
Towering above the city of Rio de Janeiro, the Christ the Redeemer Statue is considered to be the more iconic site in the city. Located on top of the Corcovado Mountain, the statue was completed in 1931 as a symbol of Christianity and the representation of the cross. The staue is of Jesus Christ standing on a pedestal symbolizing the world.
Getting to and touring the Christ the Redeemer Statue and the Corcovado takes several hours. Along the drive from Rio de Janeiro, you will travel through the Tijuca Rain Forest.
Plan to spend a half day or full day to tour and climb the area. There are pedestrian path ways, but be prepared for a good deal of walking at an incline.
Top Nearby Destinations:
Located in the Cusco region of Peru, Machu Picchu is an iconic figure in not only the country, but in all of Latin America. Often referred to as the "Lost City of the Incas", it is perhaps the most recognized icon of Inca civilization. Many researchers believe it was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti. Built in 1450, the Incas abandoned the estate a century later, right at the time of the Spanish Conquest. The mystery and lore surrounding this phenomenal complex is part of what makes it such a large tourism attraction.
Come see the beauty and mystery of Machu Picchu for yourself! Take a side trip during your stay in Brazil.

The Iguazu Falls can be aptly described as one of the most breathtakingly beautiful features of natural beauty on this planet. Located on the border of the Brazilian state of Parana and the Argentinian province of Misiones, the waterfalls divide the Iguazu River into its upper and lower segments. It goes on to form the border between Brazil and Argentina. Fresh, verdent vegetation grows all around the falls, making for scenery unlike any other. Iguazu Falls was named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation in 2011.
Tours throughout the Iguazu Falls are run year round, and provide tourists the best possible views of the falls and their inherent beauty.
