Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Visit Jerusalem Cultural Center and Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra for their historical value. Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth and Praia do Leme are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Rio de Janeiro side-trips: Saquarema (Vila Beach & Praia de Itauna), Niteroi (Piratininga Beach, Sossego Beach, & more) and Guapimirim (Dedo de Deus & Pedra do Sino). Spend the 18th (Sun) exploring nature at Parque Nacional da Serra dos Orgaos. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Reserva Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, enjoy breathtaking views from Morro Dois Irmaos, and take in the awesome beauty at Pao de Acucar.

For more things to do, reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary planning tool .

In August in Rio de Janeiro, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 22°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
