Don’t forget the Christmas Show

Every winter Rio de Janeiro sets out the greatest Christmas tree in the whole world, and we invite all of our guests to make sure they view it in the middle of our lovely Lagoa while they visit! Certainly a rare opportunity to see one of the largest Christmas trees visible to man. Beautifully lit up, the Arvore do Natal is certainly a site to behold.
