Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from New York City to Rio de Janeiro starts from $795 in early August (US Airways). Add to that $465 per person without taxes for six nights at the Savoy Othon Travel Hotel, and you're spending $1,260 on airfare and accommodation alone. For $139 more, this package gives you airfare, six nights' accommodation in Rio de Janeiro, daily continental breakfast, and all taxes and fees.
More Several optional tours are available, including a half-day guided tour of Corcovado for $169 per person, a full-day tour of Corcovado and Sugar Loaf with lunch for $198 per person, a half-day guided tour of Sugar Loaf for $180 per person, or splurge for a tour of Brazilian nightlife—complete with dinner and a trip to Rio Scenarium, known as the local spot to come for Brazilian samba and a night of traditional jazz—for $277 per person.
