Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Praia de Ipanema and Copacabana Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Pedra do Arpoador and Mirante da Prainha. Step out of Rio de Janeiro with an excursion to Imperial Museum in Petropolis--about 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, take in the awesome beauty at Pedra da Gavea, get great views at Leblon Beach, and kick back and relax at Praia de Grumari.

For traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Rio de Janeiro sightseeing planner.

In August, daily temperatures in Rio de Janeiro can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
