Bustling with samba music and all-night street parties, no city encapsulates the spirit of Brazil better than Rio de Janeiro.
Copacabana Beach has been added to your itinerary. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at BarraShopping and Galeria Silvia Cintra Box 4. Relax by the water at Praia de Ipanema and Praia Da Joatinga. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rio de Janeiro: Pedra do Elefante (in Marica) and Niteroi (Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra & Camboinhas Beach). There's much more to do: trek along Morro Dois Irmaos, get engrossed in the history at Forte de Copacabana, kick back and relax at Pepe Beach, and stroll through Barra da Tijuca Beach.

To see traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Rio de Janeiro online sightseeing planner .
