Rio de Janeiro is located in the south-east of Brazil and is one of the most important cities of the American continent. Rio de Janeiro is famous for its Carnival and its beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon) as well as the statue of Christ the Redeemer at the summit of the Corcovado mountain.
The Bay of Guanabara, with a depth of thirty kilometers, is the perfect point of embarkation for yacht charter to Rio. It is easy to cross the bay and navigate to Niterói or any of the 130 islands while experiencing magnificent view of Rio. The island ‘not to be missed’ is the Ilha de Paquetá, where the landscape has not changed since the nineteenth century and travel is reserved for bicycles and horse drawn carriages.
