Many people start with Sugar loaf Mountain (Pao de acucar). Its name describes the way the mountain juts out of the ocean and dazzles you with its sweet appearance.

It is not at all unusual to see some of the famous soccer players like Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, or maybe even Pele himself playing a game of Futevoley (a combination of soccer and volleyball) at one of these popular spots.

For example, the mountains meet the ocean and the forest meets the mountains in such blissful synergy it is impossible to describe with words. Travel to Brazil with for an unforgettable experience. Even photos are no substitute for the real thing-you have to witness it for yourself! Another unusual intersection that is not typically contemplated is where the urban jungle meets the real jungle.
