Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth and Parasailing & Paragliding. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Praia de Itauna and Castelo de Itaipava. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Serra dos Orgaos National Park (in Teresopolis), Petropolis (Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara & Museu Casa de Santos Dumont) and Niteroi (Museum of Contemporary Art, Camboinhas Beach, & more). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Claudio Coutinho Trail, kick back and relax at Praia Da Joatinga, see the interesting displays at MAR, and take in panoramic vistas at Morro Dois Irmaos.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
