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 TopShopping. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Copacabana Beach and Praia do Forte. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Museu de Arte Religiosa e Tradicional (in Cabo Frio), Petropolis (Relogio das Flores, Museu de Porcelana de Petropolis, &more) and Praia de Itacoatiara (in Niteroi). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Ipanema, kick back and relax at Mirante da Prainha, explore the activities along Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, and get great views at Leblon Beach.

For photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Rio de Janeiro day trip planning website.

Sao Paulo to Rio de Janeiro is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Sao Paulo in December since evenings lows in Rio de Janeiro dip to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
