Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sao Luis Fortress and Sao Francisco da Penitencia Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rio de Janeiro: Niteroi (Parque Estadual da Serra da Tiririca & Sossego Beach) and Pedra do Elefante (in Marica). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Sitio Roberto Burle Marx, stroll around Parque Natural Municipal da Catacumba, go for a stroll along the water at Marina Da Gloria, and take a peaceful walk through Trilha do Pao de Acucar.

To find traveler tips, maps, reviews, and tourist information, use the Rio de Janeiro travel website .

In May, daily temperatures in Rio de Janeiro can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
