Hop in an open Jeep for a morning tour of the Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro, also known as Tijuca National Park. This section of Brazil's Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) offers panoramic views from Vista Chinesa (Chinese View). Your 4-hour eco-tour includes an easy hike with a guide, giving you the chance to spot monkeys, birds and butterflies -- even sloths! You'll be amazed by the remarkable contrast of a tropical rainforest right at the edge of a big city.
