Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Do your shopping at BarraShopping and CRAB - Centro Sebrae de Referencia do Artesanato Brasileiro. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Jerusalem Cultural Center and Forte de Copacabana. Get out of town with these interesting Rio de Janeiro side-trips: Saquarema (Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth & Praia de Itauna), Castelo de Itaipava (in Itaipava) and Niteroi (Santa Cruz da Barra Fortress, Igreja de Sao Francisco Xavier, & more). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Reserva Beach, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.
