Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Step off the beaten path and head to Costao de Itacoatiara and Camboinhas Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Praia Da Joatinga and Praia de Ipanema. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Pedra do Elefante (in Marica) and Niteroi (Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress & Serra da Tiririca State Park). There's still lots to do: take in panoramic vistas at Morro Dois Irmaos, enjoy the sand and surf at Reserva Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sugarloaf Mountain, and admire the natural beauty at Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro.

To see ratings, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Rio de Janeiro trip website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In July in Rio de Janeiro, expect temperatures between 78°F during the day and 66°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
