Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Parque Lage and Pedra do Arpoador. Appreciate the collections at Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil - CCBB Rio de Janeiro and Museu Historico do Exercito e Forte de Copacabana. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Petropolis (Imperial Museum & Museu Casa de Santos Dumont). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Copacabana Beach, choose your vessel at Wonderland Sails, admire all the interesting features of Maracanã, and explore the historical opulence of Ilha Fiscal.

For where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro trip itinerary planner .

In April, daily temperatures in Rio de Janeiro can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
