Rio de Janeiro
Chilling in preparation for the big parade tomorrow is one option. But when climbing the 1,299ft of Sugarloaf Mountain by glass-panelled cable car is the other option (with Contiki picking up the tab), is there really much of a decision to be made? A favela tour is also on offer, offering an insiders perspective on the shanty towns that are home to millions (literally) of Rio's locals, and a true chance to experience something eye-opening, with proceeds being put back into the community. And if ALL THAT isn’t enough, we’ve also got hand gliding up for grabs to dial up the day even further. So exhausted by your day of adventuring, grab a caipirinha cocktail and watch the sunset on Copacabana or Ipanema beach whilst admiring footballers and capoeira masters doing their thang. Tomorrow promises to be BIG.
