Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Get some cultural insight at Praia Da Joatinga and Instituto Moreira Salles. Shop till you drop at BarraShopping and Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Niteroi (Sossego Beach & Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress), Saquarema (Vila Beach & Praia de Itauna) and Dedo de Deus (in Guapimirim). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, kick back and relax at Pedra do Arpoador, explore and take pictures at Morro Dois Irmaos, and contemplate the long history of Forte de Copacabana.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro online travel planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In August in Rio de Janeiro, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 66°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
