Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia de Ipanema and Praia de Grumari. Change things up with a short trip to Cervejaria Bohemia in Petropolis (about 1h 25 min away). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, stroll through Mirante da Prainha, take some stellar pictures from Leblon Beach, and admire the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.

For ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in August, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
