Rio de Janeiro

What a marvellous city... between the Samba and the Bossa Nova!!

The rhythms, the heat and the joy are a part of this city with a unique landscape... between the Corcovado and the Pão de Açúcar one can see Copacabana, Leblon and Ipamena!! Breathe the happiness of the Samba, the Bossa Nova and Carnival...

It was discovered by the Portuguese in 1502 on their first expedition to Brazil. They mistook the sea for a river and, in amazement, named what they saw Rio de Janeiro. Rio because they thought they were at the mouth of one; January because the expedition started in that month.

The PortoBay Rio Internacional hotel, in Copacabana, awaits for you!
