More to See and Do in RIO

When people think about RIO, Christ the Redeemer, beautiful beaches, and Sugarloaf Mountain usually come to mind first.  Today’s post features more than a dozen fascinating things to see an do in RIO along with info on how to get there.  Take a gander and find out how to conquer the seemingly insurmountable Pedra da Gávea (and chase the experience with a splash in the waterfall).  Or where to enjoy modernist exhibitions, a dip in the pool, AND a free art workshop for the kiddies!
