Brazil: Rio de Janeiro – Panoramic Copacabana

Panoramic views of the beautiful curved crescent of Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro – perhaps the most beautiful urban beach in the world – Atlantic Ocean lapping the white yellow sand beach with the Portuguese-style tiled pedestrian and bike paths behind it, the the oceanfront Avenida Copacabana, and finally the wall of hotels. And don’t forget the Christ the Redeemer statue at the back of the city.
