Rio de Janeiro

— 10 nights

Marvelous City

Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra and Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth. Step out of the city life by going to Copacabana Beach and Praia de Ipanema. Explore Rio de Janeiro's surroundings by going to Pontinha Beach (in Araruama), Niteroi (Camboinhas Beach, Sossego Beach, &more) and Saquarema (Vila Beach & Praia de Itauna). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Forte de Copacabana, stroll through Reserva Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Macumba Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jerusalem Cultural Center.
