Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Attractions like Copacabana Beach and Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Niteroi (Museum of Contemporary Art, Costao de Itacoatiara, & more) and Petropolis (Imperial Museum & Crystal Palace). Spend the 26th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pedra Bonita, kick back and relax at Praia de Grumari, and explore the world behind art at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
