Your Planet in 7 Seconds: Monkeying around in Rio de Janeiro

June 18, 2015 G Adventures

Amazing things happen on this big blue planet of ours every day, and when they do, G Adventures is there to capture them. “Your Planet in 7 Seconds” is a mini-feature to showcase those wild, weird, and wonderful things. Just give us seven seconds and we’ll show you the world!

No trip to Rio de Janeiro would be complete without seeing the marmoset monkey. These little creatures were introduced to Brazil in the early 1900s. Their numbers are so great today, they're considered an invasive species. Watch a baby marmoset sit piggy-back on its mother as night falls over this gleaming city.

Getting There

G Adventures runs a number of departures to Brazil encompassing a wide range of departure dates and activities to cater for different tastes. We’re thrilled at the prospect of showing you this big blue planet of ours — check out our small group trips here.
