Whether you're looking to revel in Carnival, head out for business meetings, explore Tijuca rainforest, or catch a game at Maracanã stadium; Miami travelers flying into Rio de Janeiro–Galeão International Airport (GIG) will feel right at home.
Brazil's capital boasts a tropical climate and vibrant, fun-loving culture that echoes Miami. Even a short stay in the city will give you the chance to see the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue, or take a scenic trolley tour of Santa Teresa.
With a rental car at your disposal, the Cidade Maravilhosa, or "The Marvelous City," is yours to explore. Stick your toes back in the sand at Ipanema Beach before you head to Avenue Nossa Senhora de Copacabana, for shopping and the chance to sample local cuisine at restaurants like Amir. If you've never ventured into a rain forest before, learn about the local flora at the Jardim Botânico, before hiking the trails of Tijuca National Park.
The flight between Miami and Rio de Janeiro will take more than eight hours. You'll have plenty of time to catch a cable car up Sugarloaf Mountain, or get a taste of Copacabana's beachfront luxury during a layover in Rio. Store your carry-on luggage in the airport's lockers and grab a rental car from the counters near the terminal exits.
