Disembark your ship, then hop in a taxi to famous Rio beaches like Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon, which make up a long stretch of golden sand (broken up only by the dramatic Arpoador rock, a popular sunset spot) between Copacabana and Ipanema. Or, if you don't want to sip a caipirinha cocktail on any of these people-watching party beaches, head a bit more off the beaten path to suburban Barra da Tijuca, where many events during the 2016 Olympics took place.
Head for the hills — or mountains, to be precise — that surround Rio's picturesque waterfront neighborhoods. Get a bus to the base station of the Corcovado funicular railway, which takes you to the base of Rio's "world wonder" Christ the Redeemer statue. Enjoy that sweeping panorama, then take a taxi to Urca and catch a cable car up the Pão de Açucar (Sugar Loaf) mountain, which offers a view that's slightly more constricted, but every bit as ... well, marvelous.
