Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
We've included these beaches for you: Praia de Ipanema and Praia de Itauna. Take a break from the city and head to Copacabana Beach and Pedra do Arpoador. Venture out of the city with trips to Niteroi (Praia de Itacoatiara, Camboinhas Beach, & more), Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth (in Saquarema) and Serra dos Orgaos National Park (in Teresopolis). The adventure continues: stroll through Praia de Grumari, pause for some photo ops at Corcovado Christ the Redeemer, kick back and relax at Mirante da Prainha, and admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro.
