Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Shop till you drop at Shopping Leblon and Museu de Porcelana de Petropolis. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Copacabana Beach and Barra da Tijuca Beach. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Petropolis (Relogio das Flores, Museu Casa de Santos Dumont, &more), Praia de Itacoatiara (in Niteroi) and Cabo Frio (Museu de Arte Religiosa e Tradicional & Praia do Forte). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, enjoy the sand and surf at Mirante da Prainha, view the masterpieces at Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas, and admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro.
