Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and known to Brazilians as the "Cidade Maravilhosa". Although Rio is famous for its festive atmosphere, it is also headquarters to some of Brazil's largest national and multinational companies. The city lies between Guanabara Bay, the legendary beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon, and tropical rain forests of Rio’s surrounding mountains.
Sao Paulo is the biggest city in South America and one of the three largest in the world (currently second1). Sao Paulo is considered one of Latin America's most important industrial and financial centers. It is the industrial center of Brazil, responsible for over 30% of Brazil's annual GNP and headquarters to the majority of Brazilian and multinational corporations. Strong industrial development and cultural diversity have provided Sao Paulo with the largest, most cultured and educated middle class in Brazil. Sao Paulo can be an intimidating place, but if you like big cities, there are few other's that match its dynamics, international setting, culture and nightlife.
Maceio is the capital of the state of Alagoas, in northeastern Brazil, with a population of approximately 325,000 people.
