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 Jerusalem Cultural Center and Helicopter Tours. Museum-lovers will get to explore Forte de Copacabana and Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress. Step out of Rio de Janeiro with an excursion to Camboinhas Beach in Niteroi--about 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: stroll through Praia de Ipanema, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian, kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, and take some stellar pictures from Sugarloaf Mountain.
