Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro. It's not just during the iconic Carnaval festival that this city comes to life--you can find wild parties and energetic dancing all year round. Equally known for the lush green hills and world-famous beaches that surround it, the warm city of around 12 million people sprawls across a rugged, weaving coastline. A tour of Rio de Janeiro reveals all the diversity of this "Marvelous City," where colorful old neighborhoods like Santa Teresa juxtapose with Rio's notorious "favelas," known as slums and havens for drug cartels. Whatever your fancy, you'll no doubt find plenty to keep you entertained on your Rio de Janeiro vacation. With our international travel planner, Brazil vacations can be built around trips to Rio de Janeiro and other destinations in Brazil.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
