Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Escape the urban bustle at Serra da Tiririca State Park and Praia de Itauna. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sossego Beach and Reserva Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Marica (Pedra do Elefante & Ponta Negra Beach), Niteroi (Costao de Itacoatiara, Igreja de Sao Francisco Xavier, & more) and Saquarema (Vila Beach & Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth). Spend the 4th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia Da Joatinga, stroll through Macumba Beach, explore the striking landscape at Pedra do Sino, and enjoy breathtaking views from Morro Dois Irmaos.
