••• Most current app to Rio - the insider's guide! •••

Make the most of Rio de Janeiro with this essential guide to the sights, beaches, nightlife, restaurants, museums, and much, much more. Comprehensive and user-friendly, you'll easily discover why locals call Rio the "Cidade Maravilhosa" (Marvellous City)!

"This app rocks! The info is plentiful and really well written. We had both our guidebooks out and Rio! at the same time at each tourist site. In a side-by-side comparison, Rio! won every time."

Our 225 entries offer all the info you really need plus lots of hidden gems, and stunning images you won't find elsewhere. The app was created from scratch by a travel writer with years of experience in Latin America, a sightseeing expert who understands Rio inside and out.

Other apps are big on tourist sights but short on decent eats or nightlife - or they focus on Copacabana and Ipanema alone. Our guide offers a personal touch to lead you right across this incredible city.

Practical tips show you how to visit Rio efficiently, affordably, and safely. Talk to the author with our in-app comments function to get personalized feedback at your fingertips!
