Brazil in general and Rio de Janeiro in particular have in recent years become an important destination for tourists from around the world and focus of international news and events.
Brazil is more fashionable than ever, especially for lovers of all sports, having hosted the World Cup in 2014 and set to host the Olympic Games in 2016.
Rio de Janeiro is a top destination on the best travelers’ ‘must’ list. Copacabana and Ipanema for the beach lovers, Christ Redeemer as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and the Maracana football (soccer) stadium for the more sport-nostalgic. The city has everything for a complete and diverse holiday experience.
On the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, about 40 kilometers away, lies Maricá, a municipality with spectacular landscapes of natural beauty as well as a beautiful cultural heritage.
Aside from its beaches, its lakes also stand out, among them Araçatiba, Boqueirao or Gamboa. Also the Pedra do Elefante (Elephant Rock) in the Sierra Tiririca State Park, 412 meters high, offers its visitors spectacular views of the entire prefecture of Marica
It is a curious experience to visit the Pedra de Itaocaia, where the remains of Darwin rest. In its surroundings you can practice adventure sports like rock climbing and rappelling.
Undoubtedly, sports and leisure coexist perfectly with the relaxation of the beach, thus creating a complete holiday experience in the vicinity of Rio de Janeiro.
BlueBay Group is coming soon to the region, to the location Marica, with five hotels: Blue Diamond, Grand BlueBay Rio, Grand BlueBay Samba Club, BlueBay City and BlueBay Circle One.
