Cool Things To Do in Rio de Janeiro

Whatever you're into, the sheer abundance of things to do in Rio de Janeiro means that you're sure to find something to float your boat
Whether your idea of fun is abseiling down sheer cliff faces, partying until dawn or checking out colourful street art, Rio is chock-full of ways to get off the main tourist drag and score some serious points on the cool-ometer.

Cool things to do in Rio aren't limited to butt-watching on the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, and sporty types might want to try their hand at surfing or even capoeira.

Visitors with a head for heights should seriously think about takign a tandem hangliding flight over Rio, for a bird's eye view of one of the world's most spectacular cityscapes.

Nightowls, if you want to hang out with the beautiful people, you'll want to make Ipanema and Leblon your first points of call (make sure you have a healthy travel budget if you want to party here), while more down and dirty nightlife with a bohemian edge can be found in Lapa, the city's party hub.
