Vargem Grande is a quaint neighborhood and is a world away from the bustling city of Rio. It is an ideal base for exploring the Serra Carioca mountain range. Trails through the forest can be followed on horseback or on foot, and lead through fruit groves and past waterfalls. It's good to build up an appetite here as the area has become famous for its cluster of excellent restaurants, known collectively as the 'Centro Gastronomico'.
