We are pleased to re-introduce our popular map of Rio for its third edition, and to include with it a detailed map of the south and east coasts of Brasil. Rio is a fascinating, if troubled, city. It recently hosted the Olympics and promised much in the way of infrastructural improvements. We delayed re-issuing this title for nine months while we evaluated what had opened, what was likely to open, and what was not likely to be completed. The core of the map is the Carioca region, close to the lower end of the tram line to the favelas. However, arriving visitors can now take the new subway from the airport to the city centre or south to the beach communities of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. The other side of the map covers much of developed Brasil, stretching from Sao Paulo in the lower left corner to Natal in the upper right of the sheet. It goes inland to Belo Horizonte and north along ordinary roads to Teresina on the Parnaiba River. The coastal highway through Salvador and Recife passes innumerable beaches and historic towns. Natal is a very popular beach area, with direct flights from Portugal. Altogether, an interesting map. 3rd edition 2019. Scale 1:12.900/1:2.200.000.
