Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Take a break from the city and head to Parque Nacional Tijuca and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Visit Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach and Mirante da Prainha for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara (in Petropolis) and Museu de Arte Contemporanea de Niteroi (in Niteroi).
