Rio de Janeiro is known for its laid back attitude, beautiful beaches and carnaval festivals. But there is much more to Rio than just sand and sea. It is a city that is constantly buzzing with energy. With over 6.3 million residents, each neighborhood has its own identity and magic. Come with me for a whirlwind of the other Rio; the real Rio. Residential areas, downtown in the midst of rush hour and the most beautiful pink beach, smack in the middle of the city. You will never see Rio the same way again.
