Rio de Janeiro
Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Copacabana Beach and Barra da Tijuca Beach. Shop till you drop at BarraShopping and Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas. Change things up with these side-trips from Rio de Janeiro: Saquarema (Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Nazareth & Praia de Itauna) and Niteroi (Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra, Sossego Beach, & more). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Recreio dos Bandeirantes Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia do Leme, take an in-depth tour of Forte de Copacabana, and see the interesting displays at Instituto Moreira Salles.
