Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Venture out of the city with trips to Petropolis (Cervejaria Bohemia & Imperial Museum) and Flor de Juana (in Visconde de Maua). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Praia de Ipanema, don't miss a visit to Escadaria Selaron, delve into the lush surroundings at Parque Nacional Tijuca, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Barra da Tijuca Beach.
