Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Praia de Grumari and Sao Bento Monastery. We've included these beaches for you: Copacabana Beach and Praia do Leme. Take a break from Rio de Janeiro with a short trip to Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra in Niteroi, about 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Forte de Copacabana, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, take a memorable ride with Sugarloaf Mountain, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

Get in touch with nature at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Franschhoek Pass. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fairview Wine and Cheese and Waterford Estate. Venture out of the city with trips to Hermanus (Ataraxia Wines, Hermanus Cliff Path, &more), Stellenbosch (Wine Tours & Tastings & Dorp Street) and Franschhoek (Lynx Wine, First South African Perfume Museum, &more). And it doesn't end there: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, do a tasting at Topiary Wines, kick back and relax at Clifton Beaches, and see the interesting displays at !Khwa ttu.
