Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
For shopping fun, head to Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas or Botafogo Praia Shopping. Get some cultural insight at Pao de Acucar and Shopping Leblon. Step out of Rio de Janeiro with an excursion to Imperial Museum in Petropolis--about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, stroll through Copacabana Beach, take a stroll around Centro Cultural Carioca, and admire the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro.
