Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.

The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Copacabana Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Grumari, get advice or help at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro, and don't miss a visit to Escadaria Selaron.
