Rio unsold: More than a million tickets remain

It's 2012, and the men's 100m Olympic event is about to begin in London. The runners lunge to the ground and get ready.

"Set!"

The starting gun goes off, and in just 9.64 seconds Usain Bolt sets a new record.

Watching the fastest man alive race to another gold medal has got to be one of the coolest feelings in the world. But if you plan on attending the 2016 Olympics in Rio to see Bolt go for more gold, your expenses can really add up. From flights to hotel packages, see how much it will cost to attend the Olympic Games in 2016 and where you can — more cheaply — watch the Olympics from home.

2016 Olympic Tickets: $20 to $1,400 Per Ticket

The 2016 Rio Olympic Games begin on Aug. 5, marking the first time a South American country has ever hosted the event. Opening and closing ceremonies will take place in Rio's Maracanã Stadium, which officially has 78,000 seats, but has a history of squeezing far more into the venue which they might do for the Rio Games.

About 7.5 million tickets are available for purchase for the Rio Olympic Games. The tickets are for events in various rounds and range from $20 to just over $1,400 for opening ceremony seats. More than half of the Olympics tickets are $21 or less, however, according to the Rio 2016 site.

Flights to Rio: $1,200 to $5,800 Roundtrip

Due to current concerns over the Zika virus, which has pervaded Rio and scared many athletes from even competing, airfare and lodging packages to Rio during the Olympics are cheaper than normal. But that doesn't mean traveling to Rio for the Olympics will be inexpensive. On Orbitz.com, for example, you can find one- to two-stop, roundtrip flights from Los Angeles to Rio leaving Aug. 3 and returning Aug. 10 for anywhere between $1,237 up to $5,741 for a nonstop flight. And as the games get closer, flight prices are just going up.

Rio Hotels for the Olympics: $20 to $4,000 Per Night

While some hotels have sold out of rooms, and hotels in Rio are limited to begin with, there are still options available. Lodging options on Expedia in Brazil range from $20 for a hostel bed to $3,995 for a hotel per night. The average price for a hotel room in Rio is about $500 per night — but keep in mind you don't get much.

You could also consider combining your flight and hotel into a more affordable package if you can find one. Julia Carter, director of sales at travel site BrazilNuts.com, said a few five-night flight and hotel packages from Miami to Ipanema Hotel in Rio, for example, are $2,799 per person for double occupancy.

Rio Olympics Souvenirs: $5 to $80 Per Item

The official Rio Olympics site already has a store offering many souvenirs for the 2016 Olympic Games. From t-shirts and hats to magnets and backpacks, the prices for these items range from as little as $5 to as much as $80 for a dress or backpack — and buying multiple items will cost even more. Not to mention purchasing other memorabilia in Rio.

Transportation Around Rio: $7 to $50 All Week

Traveling abroad can be pricey, and getting around once you've arrived can also leave you digging deep into your pockets for more cash. For the Rio Games, organizers have launched the travel RioCard, an all-in-one option that gives visitors access to all public transportation options during the Olympics. The one-day RioCard will run $7.50, three-day cards will cost $20.90 and seven-day costs will be $47.85. The card will allow users to ride the bus, metro, train and Bus Rapid Transit System. So, this is one expense that won't break the bank while in Rio — since these cards can last you all week.

Watch the 2016 Olympics at Home

If the price of attending the Rio Olympics is too high, consider watching the games from home like the majority of the U.S. will be doing anyway.
