Why Rio de Janeiro is the place to be for the World Cup

luxury-travelWhile there will be 12 host cities in total for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, none will be more exciting and uplifting than Rio de Janeiro.

Rio is a buzzing, lively capital that attracts millions of visitors each year. And there will be no other time (except perhaps in 2016 for the Summer Olympics) when the city will be more exciting than it will be during the summer months of 2014.

As the spot chosen to host the final, the city will be packed throughout the tournament. And for those attending only one game, there’s no other host city that will provide the same whirlwind World Cup experience than Rio. Many fans will be setting up shop in Rio for the whole tournament in preparation for the final game, so you know it’ll be insanely fun.

Rio is also the most visited city in the southern hemisphere, and there are many reasons for that. It’s known for its spectacular carnival celebrations, samba, bossa nova music and its wonderful beaches nearby.

The beaches are reason enough to make sure Rio is your main stay. The world famous Copacabana beach was designated host of the Beach Soccer World Cup, so you can count on the bars, hotels and beaches nearby being packed to capacity. Its 4 kilometer Balneario Beach seaside resort offers world famous recreation, hotels, restaurants and is flooded with tourists all year round.

And then there’s Rio’s identifying monument, the Christ the Redeemer statue, crowned one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. You can even take a hike up to its base, revel in all its glory, and maybe say a small prayer for your favourite team.

There is no doubt that Rio will be the soccer fan’s capital during the event. It’s the easiest of the host cities to get to, it offers the most luxurious hotels Brazil has to offer, and is always home to the biggest parties and most extravagant celebrations in Brazil. It’s obvious why it’s the most visited city south of the equator.

So, in Rio, not only will you have the best soccer experience possible, but you’ll be able to see some truly breathtaking sites that will make this trip really unforgettable.
