Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Visiting Morro Dois Irmaos and Reserva Beach will get you outdoors. Visit Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra and Forte de Copacabana for their historical value. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Shopping Nova Iguacu (in Nova Iguacu), Saquarema (Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth & Praia de Itauna) and Dedo de Deus (in Guapimirim). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Praia Da Joatinga, browse the different shops at Shopping Village Mall, take in the waterfront activity at Marina Da Gloria, and stop by BarraShopping.
