Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Step out of the city life by going to Praia Da Joatinga and Pedra do Arpoador. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Reserva Beach and Praia do Leme. Take a break from Rio de Janeiro with a short trip to Camboinhas Beach in Niteroi, about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, get lost in a book at Real Gabinete Portugues Da Leitura, make a trip to Maua Square, and stroll through Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach.
