About Rio

Rio de Janeiro (or "River of January" in English) is a major city in southeastern Brazil and the capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro. It is also Brazil's tourism capital.  Commonly known as just Rio, the city is also nicknamed A Cidade Maravilhosa — "The Marvelous City".  It is famous for its spectacular natural setting, its Carnival celebrations, samba and other music, hotel-lined tourist beaches, such as Copacabana and Ipanema, paved with decorated black and cream swirl pattern mosaics. With  a population of 6 million people in an area of 1,2255.3 km2, Rio boasts a coastline of 246.22 km2 and a green area of 325.6 km2.  Indeed, the city is a mosaic of enchantments scattered between the sea and the mountain.  The inhabitants of Rio, called cariocas, are known for being easy-going and friendly, in contrast to the more reserved citizens of other cities like Sao Paulo. Informality rules in dress codes and talking in most situations - with notable exceptions in business and religion, for example.
