1.5 days in Rio

Jump to last reply

At the end of a longer trip, I will be arriving in Rio (GIG) on a domestic flight from Foz do Iguaçu (IGU) at 13:35, Wednesday at the end of November. I fly out of GIG on Thursday at 22:50 to return home to the USA. I have an apartment about 2 blocks from the beach, which I reserved for two nights so I can use it as I need during the day on Thursday.

This will be my first time in Rio, and I just want to use the limited time I have to enjoy some of the highlights.

Would you recommend lining up some organized tours/activities ahead of time? Or am I best off making a general plan of the things I want to see and do and just being spontaneous? I'm in the midst of researching the top activities and sights, but if you have any particular suggestions for something I might otherwise overlook, I'd love to hear from you.
