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 Praia de Ipanema and Pedra do Arpoador. Popular historic sites such as Parque Lage and Ilha Fiscal are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara, Imperial Museum, & more), Restinga da Marambaia (in Mangaratiba) and Flor de Juana (in Visconde de Maua). Spend the 14th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: get advice or help at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro, admire all the interesting features of Maracanã, admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, and explore the striking landscape of Parque Nacional Tijuca.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Rio de Janeiro road trip tool .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
