Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Praia de Itauna and Praia Da Joatinga. Discover out-of-the-way places like Morro Dois Irmaos and Parque Estadual da Serra da Tiririca. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rio de Janeiro: Saquarema (Vila Beach & Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth), Niteroi (Sao Luis Fortress, Costao de Itacoatiara, &more) and Marica (Pedra do Elefante & Ponta Negra Beach). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Dedo de Deus, examine the collection at Instituto Moreira Salles, kick back and relax at Praia do Leme, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

To find photos, where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Rio de Janeiro trip planner.

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major aiport is Rio Galeão – Tom Jobim International Airport. In April in Rio de Janeiro, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel to Carolina.
