Friday 5th – Sunday 21st August 2016
Fans from around the globe will flock to the 2016 Summer Games in Rio and although sporting events will be the highlight for most, Rio boasts an endless list of activities and attractions. From relaxing on the beach, to taking a trip up Corcovado or Sugarloaf Mountains, to hiking through the sub-tropical rainforest, there truly is something for everyone. In fact, some of the venues alone, such as Maracanã Stadium, are attractions in themselves.
With Brazil also playing host to the World Cup in 2014, not only will Rio be the center of the sporting world leading up to 2016, they will undoubtedly be well-prepared to host the much- anticipated 2016 Summer Games. Aiming to deliver the greatest sporting event in the world, preparations for the Rio Games began even before they won the bid to host in 2009. As the first South American country to host the Summer Games, the stakes are high, and Rio’s version is sure to impress.
For all the wonder and spectacle that is sure to be a part of the 2016 Summer Games, there will, unfortunately, be limited space to experience it in person. We have been working hard to ensure that our clients have access to some of the finest hotels available in this great destination. Thousands of people are hoping to be in the Marvelous City for the marquis event, please contact us to ensure your spot in sports history.
