Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Praia de Itauna and Claudio Coutinho Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Serra dos Orgaos National Park (in Teresopolis), Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth (in Saquarema) and Petropolis (Museu Casa de Santos Dumont & Catedral de Sao Pedro de Alcantara). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Copacabana Beach, appreciate the history behind Corcovado Christ the Redeemer, glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, and admire all the interesting features of Maracanã.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Rio de Janeiro day trip planning website .

April in Rio de Janeiro sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
