Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful and dynamic cities in the world. It combines unrivaled natural beauty with a rich and diverse culture. This culture is expressed in Rio's music, art, cuisine and fun loving (somewhat disorganized) approach to life and business. This attitude creates special challenges for those seeking to do business. It is important that program participants recognize that Rio (like many larger cities) has potential dangers as well.
