February is the height of summer in Rio de Janerio, so you can expect the longest days of warm sunshine with temperatures consistently in the mid twenties. On the down-side, February is one of the wetter months of the year but, the big bonus is that is also usually when the Rio Carnival takes place. The Carnival, attracting visitors from all over the world, is a fabulous 4 day experience of non-stop parties and balls, brass bands, ornate carnival floats and colourful costumes, not to mention the spectacular Samba Parade and the euphoric atmosphere. Even without the Rio Carnival, the city is atmospheric and offers plenty of sights and activities. Rio de Janerio is surrounded by stunning scenery and boasts famous beaches including Copacabana and Ipanema, the world-famous Christ the Redeemer statue and spectacular views from where it stands on the Corcovado Mountain, the cable car to Sugarloaf Mountain and scenic hiking trails through the Tijuca rainforest.
